I had hoped to follow the soy milk tutorial with a photo journey through making rice milk for the first time- complete failure! I’ve never had rice milk, but the gelatinous goop I made can’t be what people drink, right?
The recipe said to take 1/2 cup dry rice or 1 cup cooked rice, and cook it in 4 cups water until very soft. Blend in a blender, let sit 45 minutes, and then strain through cheese cloth.
I tried to use my tea towel and it would NOT drain! The goo just sat there, looking….gooey. I tried gathering up the sides and twisting, like I do for the soy milk. A ha! It’s draining! Draining, yes. Filtering, no- I pushed every bit of that goo through the towel.
Is rice milk tasty? Tasty enough to try this again? I don’t think this would be a regular drink for us- as far as I can see, it has almost no nutritive qualities. But if it’s really tasty, it might make a nice treat for Mimi.
