While you may have come across Rice Dream, the common brand of rice milk found at the supermarket, did you know you can prepare your own rice beverage within the comforts of your own home? Rice milk is a type of grain milk that you may fall in love with once you try. Most of its flavor comes from brown rice that is usually sweetened with sugarcane syrup.
