Brown Rice Milk

By Cathe Olson

Brown Rice MilkYou won’t believe how easy it is to make your own rice milk. This costs just pennies to make too. Try it warm or cold.

1/2 cup brown rice

8 cups water

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/8 teaspoon granulated kelp (optional)

1 cup or more cold water

3 tablespoons maple syrup or honey

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Place rice, 8 cups water, salt, and kelp in pan. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat, reduce heat to low and simmer 3 hours, or until rice is very soft. (You can also do this in a crockpot overnight.)

In blender, puree rice mixture with remaining ingredients. You will have to do it in two batches. Puree each batch at least 2 or 3 minutes to completely liquefy the rice. Add more water if a thinner consistency is desired. Keep refrigerated.

Yield: About 6 cups
