Rice Milk – A Dairy Alternative

posted in: Recipes 0

For those with dairy allergies (or sensitivities), rice milk can be a good substitute. I used a lot of rice milk recipes that want you to blend the brown rice for several minutes, giving you a thick and creamy rice milk. While you have to blend, I tend to go for only 1 minute. This is because if you make the rice milk too creamy, it has a very strong rice flavor (which is bad for desserts.) You can use this recipe to make custards (maybe a crème brulee) or an ice cream base.
