Easy Brown Rice Milk

For a change from nut milk, or if you have allergies to nuts, or you have small children that you are still waiting to introduce nuts to, this Easy Brown Rice Milk is delicious!!  Peanuts cause the most allergies out of the nut family, but there are few of you out there that have allergies to various nuts. You have to give this easy, inexpensive and delicious milk a try.  Try adding chocolate, serving it warm, making it into a chai drink with Cinnamon and nutmeg.  You can also add B12, Vit. D and a probiotic to it.  I think you are going to love this one:)  Watch for a post coming soon on how to make coconut milk-Yummy!!

Brown rice is high in magnesium.  Magnesium as well as calcium, is necessary for healthy bones. About two-thirds of the magnesium in the human body is found in our bones. Some help give bones their physical structure, while the rest is found on the surface of the bone where it is stored for the body to draw upon as needed. Brown rice can help you keep those storage sites replenished and ready to meet your body's needs. A cup of brown rice will give you 21.0% of the daily value for magnesium.

    Thank you so much for this crazily simple recipe Debbie.
    So lovely to have plant milk recipes readily available. Also, to not be reliant on the whims of supermarket stockists.
    Think I'll make some today!
    Again, thank you!
