Making brown rice milk

Today's non-dairy milk recipe is for brown rice milk.  Like the others I've shown, (oat milk, almond milk, and banana milk), it's quick and easy and has no odd ingredients like store bought non-dairy milks.  It's just brown rice and water.

Start with 1 cup of cooked brown rice. I used organic brown basmati.


Put it in a blender with 2 cups of water.



Blend on high for a couple of minutes.


Strain through a nut bag or cheesecloth (see almond milk recipe for more info on nut bags).


Store refrigerated for up to 10 days.  Use for cereal and as a replacement for dairy milk in recipes.


For my personal taste, I add 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla essence to this rice as it tastes a bit too much like rice for my liking.  See what you think.  I much prefer it with the vanilla, yet other non dairy milks I like plain.

What's your favorite?

"Emergency" non-dairy milk - Banana milk

Following on from the previous couple of weeks Oat Milk and Almond Milk recipes , this week I'm going to show you how to make banana milk.  I consider it an "emergency" non-dairy milk.  It's for those occasions like when you have gone away to a friend's house for the weekend and it comes to breakfast and they only have dairy milk for your cereal which you don't want or can't tolerate due to health reasons.  Instead, you can quickly whip up some banana milk and use that instead.

It is, naturally, banana-y so isn't useful for other things like putting in coffee! - but it is perfect for cereal.

All you need is a banana, some water and an immersion blender.


Cut up the banana and place in a jug/bowl.


Blend the banana with the immersion blender until it is liquid.


Add 1 cup of water and blend again.



Voila - yummy banana milk for oatmeal or cereal.


Use it soon after making or else it'll go brown.
