From the cookbook called "How It All Vegan".


  1. In a blender or food processor, blend all the ingredients until smooth.
  2. This will be quite thick and gets thicker as it sets.
  3. Thin the mixture with more water if necessary.
  4. Strain any lumps and chill.
  5. In addition to drinking it as is, it may be used in gravies, sauces, and soups in place of milk.

Does this taste like commercial rice milk? Yes. Do I like commercial rice milk? Actually no. rice milk is not my thing at all. Just my taste buds and no fault of the recipe. I prefer oat milk. But this recipe is easy, tastes better than most and has an agreeable consistency. It also is very easy to make. So it is a 5 star recipe for those true rice milk fans out there.

this is a good recipe. it sort of makes a concentrated milk and you cut it with water to reach your desired consistency.
because there's no fat in this recipe - i added about 2T, ground flaxseed to the cooked rice and hot water before blending it in the food processor. then i strained the finished milk well. i also added about a tsp. of honey.
the flax doesn't give a bad flavor and adds omega 3's.

Easy to make and a great alternative to cow's milk! I didn't strain mine and it still tasted fine, although there were fine pieces throughout. I also used brown sugar instead of maple syrup, and added a HUGE sqeeze of honey! For reference, this recipe is actually the base for the milk, you adjust it with more water to your personal liking. I'm definitely keeping this recipe!
