RICE MILK: THE NOVEL
Unabridged; the MLK Fisherish long version - why not write long when short would do?...
Soon to be a major motion picture (well, isn't everything?) Copyright 2007, The Annals of Raw - literally, right this minute.
Table of Contents
Per serving: half cut brown rice
Soak the rice a day or two or three before actually wanting to drink this and drain off water several hours later (or next morning) each time.
Basically put warm or hot water on the grains in a bowl or jar and let sit (go to work, go to sleep, etc.)
Day two or day three:
Drain off final soaking water, scoop wet grains into a blender using new filtered water to rinse out the bowl or jar to pick up any remaining grains ('waste not, want not' - ok, bad flashback), add enough water into the Vitamix to give a visual on how much you want to prepare, then blend. If you monitor the Vitamix for a few seconds longer than a green smoothie, you can get this drink warm and that's good some days.
You do not have to strain this through a nut bag or strainer; the richness of the pulverized grains adds to the flavor, but if you must, no harm done.
The remaining pulp could enrich your dog's food if you really don't have a use for this for yourself at the time...
Add agave, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, pumpkin pie spice (love those flavors year-round) and/or cacao or carob powders; anything you might like to jazz this up, but honestly, with brown rice the flavor is very rich.
