Cooking with rice milk?

I'm trying rice milk as an alternative to soy (the real stuff really bothers my stomach, even lactose-free), and I've found it's delicious with cereal and even on its own! But as it's a bit thin in comparison to soy milk I'm wondering if it still can be used with success in cooking and baking - does anyone have experience with it?

I'm just trying it as I've heard that soy milk can still be a little harsh and the rice milk is must easier to digest - well I've no complaints yet, and I can even lie on the my stomach on the couch tonight - usually that's a complete no-no due to pain and bloating! I love my cereal in the morning (and sometimes as a snack) so I'm trying to find the most friendly combination - looks like coco pops (puffed rice) and rice milk is winning at the moment.

Hey Lizzy good for you! I have been using it almost 10 years now but I get the one in the fridge and good for 2 months called Rice Dream. I do cook with it but dont expect it to thicken lol. Only dairy does that and I dont like soy. I use it in all my cereal and hot cereal. I use stevia in my coffee but I can use cream... strange but not milk. Glad you checked it out.

Hi Pen! I was hoping you'd see this as I've read in other threads that you use it lol - I'm also using rice dream and have to say I'm really happy with it so far. Will have to use trial and error when cooking I guess! I don't have a problem with the taste/texture of soy milk but I suffer from bloating/gas/d so I'm trialling the rice milk to see if it helps. Thanks for the advice!

I love tapioca and Rice milk wont work and lactose free milk doesnt work for me so I am happy without the tapioca. Just to let you know to really shake the carton before you use it, has a tendency to settle.

Hi,

I've only used rice milk in porridge (oats) and mashed potato so far and it worked just fine.

I've also been using Kara Coconut milk + Calcium and find that quit nice, perhaps not quite as sweet as the Rice Dream.

Regards,

Mark
