Re: Favorite non-dairy, non-soy milk to use for baking

I use almond for most things, pancakes, gravy etc but canned full fat coconut milk is fantastic for everything else. anything where you would use heavy cream or a cream of anything soup, or even sour cream it just works really well in. I LOVE canned coconut milk!

This is how i make rice milk


5 c water
1/2 c rice
2 tsp salt
3-6 TBSP sweetener of choice(OPTIONAL)
1 TBSP vanilla(OPTIONAL)

cook rice,water and salt in pressure cooker 15 minutes or simmer in a pot until rice it very soft,about 30 to 60 minutes.

Measure 1 1/4 c rice slurry into blender and 1 1/4 c water, blend on high speed 1 minute.

Strain rice mixture through cheese cloth, repeat with remain rice slurry. On the last batch add 3 - 6 TBSP of sweetener and/or 1 TBSP vanilla.

Makes approx. 2+ qt.

I think it costs me roughly 12 cents to make 2+ quarts of rice milk

After my success with a Marta Stewart Chocolate Cake recipe, I'm a fan of baking with the So Delicious Coconut Milk. Delicious!

The only problem with making it is most store ones are fortified with vitamins, but they are cheaper I wish I could use coconut milk esp now going vegan, but I can't stand it lol
