We tried out/created five different rice milk/almond milk recipes and I tested them on my kids.
After trying samples of each one, the majority voted on their favorite! The winner is…
Here’s the winning recipe for homemade Rice Milk:
4 c water
1 c brown rice, cooked
1/4 c canola oil
1/4 c honey
1 tsp. vanilla
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend on high for 3 minutes. (My husband got me a VitaMix for my anniversary, so this is what I used.) Strain through cheesecloth, if desired. Refrigerate and use for drinking, on top of cereal, and in baking.
All in all, this is a great recipe. We will continue to adapt and try out new things, but were pleased with the result. Please note that the mixture tends to separate by morning, so we have to give it a quick stir before adding it to our cereal. This will save us a TON of money in the long run and is a great substitute for rice milk and soy milk. We have yet to find a good almond milk recipe as it is too thick, but will keep trying:)
