  • I hate running a burner for 3 hours, so is it an option to cook it on high in a slow cooker? Or maybe pressure cooking?

    Karen D on

  • I’m sure you can find a pressure cooker recipe for this if you search online. My thoughts were in the same direction. Since it usually takes about 1/3 the time, it might just take one hour.

  • Can you just use regular cooked rice from a rice cooker?

    Erika on

  • I’ve always just used cooked brown rice and water. I put it on number 9 to blend. I never even thought to use the juice button. I also make it in smaller batches so it’s always fresh.
    Works for me.

  • Will cooking the rice in a rice cooker suffice?

    Eileen on

  • Nice recipe, I have a couple of questions: How long would this keep in the fridge? Does anybody know if this could be frozen? It would be nice if you could make up a crockpot’s worth by doubling this recipe (Most crock pots are 5 or 6 quarts) and then freezing what you don’t use within a week. I would start the crockpot on high, and bring the liquid up to a boil on the stove or in the microwave. Add everything to the crockpot and turn it to low for 3 hours and test. If soft enough, remove crock pot from base, and put in a sink of ice water to help it cool faster, then Blendtec it! Sounds like an experiment to me!

  • Do you recommend using organic rice?

    Guest on

  • I am sure you can cook brown or white rice in a slow cooker . Let it cool then use juice button or any number button of your Blendtec

    Rose51 on

  • this tastes horrible and has an ugly color

    tantrictara on

  • I dont think it has to be cooked that long. This blender is so good. It has to be realy sof, no need for 3 hrs.

    mama on

  • I just made this…it turned out like sludge. I don’t think this recipe was tested in the Blendtec labs before it was posted. I’d love to be hired as your Blendtec Consumer Food Relations Manager. ("Recipe Tester")

    Heather on

  • Could you throw it in a slow cooker and just let it slowly cook over night or something?

    Georgia on

  • Thank you for your feedback. Did you strain it through a cheese cloth? It is sludge until you strain it, and if it is still too think you can strain it again.

    Blendtec on

  • I’m a rookie so forgive my questions. Why 3 hours of cooking? I can understand a longer time for brown rice but seems like the blended would do the job on white rice cooked a much shorter time. Is straining needed if I’m going to use it over cereal?

    Darrell on

  • We haven’t testing this, but it seems like it should work. Give it a try and let us know how it goes.

    Blendtec on

  • Its the button with the orange slice. :)

    Cris on

  • You can use organic or non-organic. The recipe should turn out regardless.

    Blendtec on

  • Hi Eileen. Cooking the rice in a rice cooker will work fine, but you may need to add a bit more water.

    Blendtec on

  • Hi Jeannine, in the refrigerator, the rice milk will last 3 days.
    You can freeze the rice milk, but it will need to be stirred well after it thaws. Pour it into your blender jar, and run the "Smoothie" cycle to remix the milk.

    Blendtec on

  • Hi Darrell. The reason for cooking the rice so long is to not just cook the rice, but to supersaturate it and break down the starch so it will easily pour through a sieve after being blended.

    Blendtec on

  • Hi Erika. Cooking the rice in a rice cooker will work fine, but you may need to add a bit more water.

    Blendtec on

  • I used 1/4 cup + 2 Tbs of rice with the 8 cups water in a pressure cooker. 30 min high pressure. Then blend 4 cups with sugar and 2 Tbs of cocoa powder. Great consistancy no cheese cloth needed.

    Brian on

  • My blendtec doesn’t have a whole juice or an "orange slice" option, it’s more of a simple version which only has a hot soups option, smoothie, low, medium, high, and a pulse. Which button would I press to substitute the "whole juice" option? Thanks

    Vera on

  • I’m a fan of Vanilla Rice Dream and also want something that doesn’t take long to make so I was experimenting with trying to match the taste and come up with a method that was fast. I used raw rice vs. cooked as I had seen others promote this method on Youtube with the Blendtec blender. I modified the recipe to the following (cutting the rice and water it in half and adding oil). With the oil it will require a good shake each time but it was pretty close in taste. If anyone else can tweak it even better let me know – and keep in mind that these are estimates as I tried gradually modifying and adding as I tasted it against the original. It may also work for the cooked rice version and it may produce a thicker, smoother taste but I can’t be bothered with the time it takes to boil it each time. Makes about 3.5 cups of vanilla rice milk. Good luck.

    1/2 c
    brown rice
    4 c
    1⁄4 tsp
    kosher or sea salt
    1 1/2 tsp
    vanilla extract
    2 tbsp
    honey, maple syrup, or agave nectar
    3 tbsp avocado oil

    David A. on

  • David, it’s been 2 years since you posted your comment, have you mastered the recipe? Did you soak the rice?

    Alex on

  • Hi, Vera! Blend on a medium or high speed for 50-60 seconds. Happy blending!

    Blendtec on

  • HI, I do have a Blendtec Blender with a Wildside "Blender Bowl". HOWEVER, my blender does not have anything called "Whole Juice" to select! How do I make this rice milk if my blendtec is an earlier version?
