Osicapa (Rice) Milk - How to make rice milk


When it comes to easy and affordable homemade drinks, i guess it's safe to say rice milk would be on the list. Making it at home just feels so natural especially if you need a quick fix for that thirst or even hunger pang. Some people make the thicker version of this, add milk and take it as a hot porridge while some other people make the runny version of this drink, chill it and take it as a cold beverage.
So it actually depends on taste and preference. If you've tried the commercial variants of this drink, you'd be amazed with what you could come up with at home in terms of giving it your own zing 😎😎. Rice milk is a non diary refreshing drink made with rice. It's quite popular in regions with rice as a major staple. You could use either white or brown rice for this but i find brown rice more flavorful and healthier than white rice. Rice milk can be sweetened with honey, sugar or even syrup. For extra added flavor, feel free to use flavors such as nutmeg, cinnamon or vanilla to suit your own preferences.
