rice milk and the big apple

i am so proud of myself! i made rice milk from scratch and it is goooood. we actually drink almond milk, but i use so much brown rice for georgia's cereal that i started thinking, "what else can i do to get the most out of the rice"? So, naturally i made rice milk;) tonight we had some warm rice chai lattes.

here's how you do it.

rinse 1 cup of brown rice
add 2 cups of water
blend thoroughly
strain the water (which is now the milk) using either a very fine strainer or you can buy a nut or rice milk bag.
add a teaspoon of honey while blending, if you want to sweeten it, and you can even add vanilla or cocoa powder to make chocolate!

wondering what to do with the left over rice grits? i make cereal for georgia by cooking it on the stove like oatmeal. for myself and casey i add tons of ground flax seeds, cinnamon and agave nectar to can even add fresh berries. so good!

store the milk in a sealed container for up to 4 days and make sure to shake at each use.
enjoy! things taste so much better when they are made from scratch, don't you think?

we are off to NYC for the weekend! we got some special peeps meeting us there too!
see ya in a few days.
