Also see Horchata

Ingredients[edit]

  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 4 cups water

Procedure[edit]

  1. Combine ingredients in a blender. Add sweetener and variations (below) to taste.
  2. Blend until smooth, roughly 1–2 minutes
  3. Refrigerate at least four hours or overnight if possible, and use within 5 days.

Variations[edit]

Rice milk is easy to customize. White, brown, or even wild rice can be used. For new flavors, try adding cocoa powder, vanilla, or banana.

  • For a vegan horchata, add 1 tablespoon vanilla and 2 tablespoons cinnamon to the rice milk.

Notes[edit]

  • This recipe makes one quart of milk, and serves approximately four one-cup servings. This recipe can be adjusted to size at a 1:4 ratio of rice to water.
  • If the milk seems too grainy, the rice can be soaked in water overnight before cooking, or strained through cheesecloth after blending.
