Recipe by Blessed*One
Rice milk seems too thin. Oat milk seems too thick. So I tried a combination of both together. I like the consistency of this mixture.

I've made this a few times and had to learn a few things to get it right. I prefer to use all rice instead of oatmeal. I've found that I can get it smooth without even straining it as long as I heat the water before I add it to the blender. Thank you for an inexpensive milk alternative recipe worth going back to!
- 1⁄2 cup cooked rice (I cook a whole batch of brown rice, then freeze 1/2 cup portions)
- 1⁄2 cup rolled oats (uncooked)
- 6 cups water (divided)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 tablespoons honey
Directions See How It's Made
- Add rice and oats to 2 cups water. Bring to boiling, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring frequently.
- Add other ingredients while combination is still warm, so honey dissolves easily,.
- Blend together in a blender. Start at low speed, increasing speed to high gradually, until well blended.
- Add 2 cups of water (Can use ice cubes for part of this to cool milk more quickly), blending thoroughly.
- Have the remaining 2 cups of water (include part as ice cubes here too, if desired) waiting in a container.
- Strain the rice/oat mixture through a fine sieve. (I think the strained solids are a tasty small serving of cooked cereal).
- Add rice/oat milk to the water in container and shake well. This may be too thick for your liking. Just add more water until it reaches the desired consistency.
- (cooking time doesn't include time to cook rice before adding to recipe).
