How to Make Rice Milk

by Amy Taylor

This is my first attempt and it's not perfect, but it tastes good lol


  • 1 ½ Cups Cooked rice ( I used leftover white rice)
  • 2 Cups Warm water
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
  • Blender
  • Fine mesh strainer
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Leftover white rice. You can also use brown rice. If you don't have leftovers, just make some fresh, with a little extra water than normal, to get the rice nice & water logged.

    Step 2

    2 cups of warm tap water. Add water & rice to your blender.

    Step 3

    Blend until smooth; about 2-3 minutes.

    Step 4

    This is what it will look like. Let mixture set for 30 minutes, to let all the rice particles settle.

    Step 5

    Meanwhile, set up your fine mesh strainer. Cheese cloth or a nut bag is a better option, but I couldn't find mine. This will let bigger particles in; so you may need to strain twice.

    Step 6

    After 30 minutes, strain rice mixture.

    Step 7

    It will take a little while to filter through. If you're impatient like me, see next picture :)

    Step 8

    Use a spoon to push liquid through. This may also push more rice mush through. So letting it strain naturally may help.

    Step 9

    Rice mush. I trashed it. But you maybe be able to use it for rice pudding or crackers. Google is your friend :)

    Step 10

    Step 11

    Pour into a container to store. Add vanilla & brown sugar; shake like crazy to combine. Keep in the fridge. It will make a little more than 1 cup. Probably more if you use a nut bag or cheese cloth.
