Almond Rice Oat MIlk


1/2 cup raw almonds

2 T brown rice

1 T oat groats (whole oats or steel cut oats)

Water to cover during soak

6 cups of water

1/4 - 1 tsp salt

Optional: 1/2 - 2 tsp vanilla; 1/8 - 1/4 cup sweetener (agave nectar, maple syrup, brown rice syrup).

Soak the almonds, rice and oats for 4-6 hours in enough water to cover by 1-2 inches. Drain and rinse.
Place in a soy milk maker and add water to the line (about 6 cups). Place the soy milk maker in a pie pan in case it boils over. Attach the lid, plug it in, and press either the “Rice” or “Soy” button. It will take about 12-15 minutes.
When the machine has finished the cycle, unplug, remove the lid, strain the pulp from the liquid, and add flavorings (if desired). Let it cool and transfer the milk into a glass container or pitcher. It will keep in the refrigerator for about a week.
