Rice milk is great for cooking, in oatmeal, on breakfast cereals and wherever you want a more neutral milky flavor. It’s inexpensive and easy to make!


  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • 950ml water
  • 2 dates, destoned
  • Pinch sea salt


  1. Soak the rice in water for two hours, then drain it.
  2. Soak the dates in water for two hours.
  3. Put the rice and dates into a blender with the water and salt.
  4. Blend for around one minute until it is thick and creamy.
  5. Pour the mixture through muslin or a fine cheesecloth (or even an old, but clean, T-shirt) to strain out any solids. Squeeze the pulp out.
  6. Bottle up the milk and refrigerate it. Consume within three days.
