A quick and easy 2-ingredient way to make homemade rice milk! Naturally creamy and sweet, and perfect for smoothies, granola, and more!


  • 3/4 cup uncooked long grain white rice*
  • 4 cups water (use less water for thicker and creamier milk!)
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1 full Date, stoned (optional / /for sweet // or 1 tbsp (15ml) maple syrup)
  • 1/2 cc vanilla extract (optional )
  • 2 tablespoon Cocoa or cocoa powder for “chocolate milk” ( optional< /em>)
  • 1/4 cup fresh berries for “berry milk” (< em> optional )


  • Soak rice in 2 cups (the amount listed in the original recipe // adjust if batch size is changed) very hot (not boiling water) for 2 hours. The rice should be soft but still very raw – you should be able to break a piece in half with your fingernail without much effort. Empty and add to High speed mixer.

  • Add water, salt and any additional additives (optional). Cover with a lid and cover with a towel to avoid spills. Blend until the date grains are very small and the mixture appears well blended, about 1 minute. It doesn’t need to be 100% pulverized.
  • Take a small sample with a spoon to test the sweetness. If that’s not sweet enough, add more dates.
  • Pour Pour the mixture over a large mixing bowl or pitcher covered with a thin towel, clean t-shirt, or very tight bag of nut milk. In my experience, it benefits from a double bind. Some bags of nut milk leave too much residue.
  • Transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator. Keeps in the fridge for up to 5 days (sometimes longer). Great for using in things like smoothiesCerealvegan cheese sauces and Pastry!
