    Default Rice/almond/soya milk maker?

    I saw one yesterday at this wellness and health show I went to and wondered if anyone had one and if it's worth it?

    It looks like that:



    You put rice or almonds or soya... in it, add 1-1.5 liter of water, and in some 10-15 minutes voilą!, your milk is ready.

    Well, a special pot to make almond or rice milk is completely unnecessary. All you need is a good blender and a sieve. For soymilk though, you do need a machine, and it is totally worth it if you use a lot of soymilk and make your own tofu. It is really important to wash the filter immediately; otherwise, the soybeans gunk it up and it is really hard to get it clean.

    Woohoo! That's what I thought

    For rice milk, you can use either white or brown rice, and it has to be cooked until soft first. Use about 1 cup of uncooked rice and when it's cooked blend it with about 3 cups of water. Leave it plain for cooking, or add a bit of vanilla and sweetener for using in desserts and over cereal. [I don't bother straining rice milk. It will settle in the fridge and needs to be shaken before using.]

    For almond milk, the general ratio is 1 cup raw almonds to 4 cups water. Peeling the almonds isn't necessary unless you want a very white milk. I don't bother [but I am really lazy]. Raw foodists recommend soaking the almonds overnight and discarding the water. Sieve after blending [the almond pulp can be used in baking or as a facial scrub]. Leave it plain for cooking, or add a bit of vanilla and sweetener if using in 'milkshakes', desserts, or over cereal.
