How To Make Rice Milk
- 3/4 cup rice (long-grain white or brown rice)
- 4 cups water
- 1/4 tsp salt (or to taste)
- 1 date (pitted, optional)
- 1 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
- Soak the rice in boiling hot water for 2-3 hours, so that it is partially cooked. The grains should be soft but must have a hard center. This will enable the rice milk to get a nutty taste.
- Alternatively, you can choose to save time by cooking the rice as per instructions on the package. However, this could give a gummy taste to the rice milk.
- Drain the rice and put it into a blender. Add salt, water, and the sweetener of your choice. Blend it till you get a thick, grainy mixture. It does not have to be smooth. This is the best time to check if you need to add more salt or sweetener.
- Using a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth, strain the mixture into a clean glass bowl. Make sure you strain it well to collect all the available rice milk.
- You can store the rice milk in a glass bottle or airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Enjoy the rice milk chilled or in smoothies. You can also have it with your favorite granola.
