Fast Fitness - Quick Homemade Almond Milk and Rice Milk

Here is Friday Fast Fitness - make your own easy, inexpensive almond milk and rice milk.

Good tasting and healthier than dairy milk or soymilk. See Is Your Health Food Unhealthful?

Use in place of milk in most recipes, desserts, in coffee or tea.

For almond milk:

  1. Soak a cup of raw almonds for several hours until soft. Four hours is a good start.
  2. Use a blender or other mixer to blend softened almonds with several (about 4) cups of clean water until you like the consistency.
  3. Add optional flavors that you like - cinnamon, vanilla, unsweetened undutched cocoa, nutmeg, small fresh piece of ginger root, fresh berries, and others.

For rice milk, throw cooked rice in a blender or bowl and mash with water until the consistency you want. Flavor as above.

Don't slouch your neck forward as in the right-hand person in the second photo above. Stand straight, pictured in Fast Fitness - Homemade Sports Food.
