DIY: How to Make Homemade Rice Milk

Save Money – Make Your Own Homemade Rice Milk!

We use a lot of almond and coconut milk at our house, but it isn’t very cost effective for me to make it myself every time I need it (though I think homemade tastes better than store bought) – so I’ve learned to make my own rice milk.  It’s so ridiculously easy to make, it practically makes itself.  The best part is there’s no overnight soaking required unlike nut milks, so you can whip up a fresh batch of rice milk in a couple of hours.  If you can make a pot of rice, you can definitely make rice milk!

Food as Medicine

I used to shy away from baking homemade bread until I learned how to make focaccia from scratch.  It’s so simple it nearly makes itself.  The key to its simplicity is making the dough in the food processor.  Once that’s done the rest is a piece of cake.

Vegan Deliciousness

I’m not vegan, but I love trying out various vegan eats and treats – vegan eating is a good way to make your grocery dollars stretch.  Organic eggs and milk are very expensive, and knowing how to substitute for them in recipes is a really useful skill to have.

How to Make Homemade Almond Milk

Vanilla Almond Milk

A Delicious Dairy Alternative

At my house we’ve tried to lessen the amount of dairy milk we consume.  Organic and raw milk are very expensive and somewhat difficult to find.  Besides, we feel everything we consume should be in moderation.  So to supplement our milk needs we turned to nut milks – organic almond and coconut milks are our favorite, but they too can get pretty pricey when you’re buying them by the half-gallon.

Lovely Lemon Bars

Lucious Lemon Bars!

A Lucious Lemony Treat!

When life gives me lemons I make lemon bars instead of lemonade - a decadent and irresistable treat my whole family loves!  Although thsese yummy dessert bars aren’t the epitome of health food, you can play with the recipe to make them a little less naughty.  Use less sugar, another kind of sweetener (like honey), or try different flour combinations (gluten-free perhaps).  In moderation though these lemon bars totally rock!  (Especially with a cup of chai!)

Easy Gluten-Free Banana Walnut Quick Bread

Gluten-Free and Delicious!

If you’ve ever tried gluten-free foods you may have found they don’t always taste great – that certainly poses a problem when going gluten-free isn’t an option but a health necessity.  Though there is no celiac disease in my family, there is wheat intolerance – so that means getting creative with some of my family’s favorite recipes.

I’ve taken my recipe for banana nut bread and made it gluten-free.  It’s so yummy you’ll never miss the wheat!  Enjoy! ;)
