Anyone know how to make raw rice milk?

You could make rice milk buy soaking white rice and then blending and then straining. However, white rice is not living rice. (another words, if you plant it, it will not sprout)
You could make milk with sprouted brown rice, but I don't know if that would be a flavor you would want.
For raw vegan milk, the most popular kind for raw foodist is almond milk.

I've made raw rice milk from the recipe here:
substituting soaked raw brown rice for the cooked rice called for in the recipe. not bad, and much cheaper/less fat than nut milk.

Thanks, I will try that. I do like nut milk, especially macadamia, but I like the idea of a less expensive version. I think I actually have three children that have an allergy to dairy.

Does anyone know how long this rice milk lasts in the fridge?? And would it be possible to make with a regular blender or food processor?

I used a regular blender, and it tasted fine for at least 4-5 days when kept in the fridge in a closed jar. You probably want to shake it; even after straining there's a little sediment at the bottom.
PS--I didn't add sweetener, which I would imagine might reduce the shelf life

i have made rice milk with "sweet brown rice". WF has it in the bulk bins. A couple things: 1) I think it does not last quite as long as nut milk, and 2) You should use more rice to water, proportionately, than you would for nut milk (i.e. if you use 1 cup of almonds to 4 cups of water (which is what i do), then use 1 cup of rice to like 2 1/2 or 3 cups of water, maybe even 2 cups of water). Reason being is that the rice, not having any oils like the nuts, will be thinner tasting, so you don't want it to be too watery. So, use more rice proportionately. Also, you could add a few almonds, or almond extract, and some cinnamon and called it Raw Horchata! :)
