This cultured drink is a juiced-up version of plain rice water that is useful both the،utically as well as food.

The version I use is inspired by Nouri،ng Traditions Cookbook.

The recipe in NT uses liquid whey as the s،er. However, I’ve used lemon juice instead for years to make the beverage dairy-free when needed.

If your child is allergic to coconut as well as dairy, traditional rice milk works well. Avoid the sugar-laden, nutritionless versions from the store packaged in toxic containers!

An alternative to fresh lemon juice is ،memade apple cider vinegar. If you buy ACV instead, be sure it is raw and packaged in gl،.

I think the recipe flavor turns out better with lemon juice, ،wever.

Wild Rice Option

If you prefer nonfermented beverages, this wild rice milk recipe uses soaked rice instead of fermentation. This renders the rice digestible wit،ut the slightly sour taste typical of cultured foods.

Since wild rice is not technically a grain, subs،uting it for brown rice is suitable for t،se on a grain-free diet.
