Add 3 times the amount of water, and leave it for 24 hours. I use filtered water because our water tastes like chlorine, but your water may be okay.

Put the rice and 3 cups of water (preferably filtered) into a blender.  Whizz it up on the top setting for about 3 minutes, or until the rice grains have become very fine particles.

Use a sieve to get the big bits, and have a long piece of muslin, folded double and the width of the funnel.    Some use a big square, bundle it up and squeeze it for ages. I do this instead.

And one teaspoon of brown sugar. Some add cinnamon, some use honey, some like to keep it as it is. I like a bit of sweetness to mimic the stuff you get in cartons.

Give it a good shake, and hey presto - home made rice milk.   It keeps in the fridge for about a week and needs a good shake every time you use it.   Any ideas of what to do with the rice goo welcome!
