Rice Milk

As babies I never gave either of my children cow milk. It never made sense to me to give cow milk meant for baby cows to human babies. They went from Mama milk to either water or rice milk. Interesting as they have entered the teen years my son can down a gallon of ice cream without problem while my daughter just can not digest milk the same way. I have never been a big milk drinker myself but my daughter and I share a love of cereal and this is the dilema.

What to use with our cereal? We both love almond milk but I just couldn’t find one that was tasty enough. So I have started making my own. It is really theraputic experience me. I have used different combinations of nuts and added several different sweeteners along the way. I make one batch on Sunday and another on Wednesday. Fresh almond milk lasts about three days. You can also pour small portions into dixie cups and freeze for a delicious afternoon ice cream substitute. I think it is essential to pay a few dollars more and get everything organic.

My Basic Almond Milk Recipe


2 cups almonds soaked overnight (I add cashews or walnuts to add some creaminess)

5 cups filtered water

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

5 dates

2 teaspoons cinnamon powder


Put everything into your blender and blend on high. Strain through cheesecloth or my (Can’t do without) Nut Bag into a bowl. Put funnel onto old mild jar and pour. Chill well.


To make easy chocolate milk add a few teaspoons of raw cacao and a few more dates.
