I think Pacific makes a rice milk that would be safe. If you have a Wegmans near you theirs is also safe.

I switched from Rice Dream to Good Karma.

I don't live by a Wegman's. :( But I'll be keeping my eyes open for Good Karma and Pacific!

What other milks do people suggest? I cannot have dairy, soy, peanuts or tree nuts (no almond milk, sadly), or high amounts of fat (coconut milk products often make me sick because of this). Any thoughts would be GREAT! Thanks!!

Ever tried to make your own rice milk? It is SO easy. We react to many of the additives in non-dairy milks, too, but then I found a recipe for rice milk and I couldn't believe how simple it is. Takes a few hours, but you can essentially ignore the boiling pot. It only has two ingredients for the most basic ( 8 cups water and 1 cup brown rice) and you can add oil or a sweetener or other additions if you want to make it better. The above makes about 5 pints of rice milk that is twice as thick as commercially available rice milk, so you can dilute it to twice as much if you like it thinner.

I noticed that the thicker consistency was nicer when we wanted to thicken something, though.

This is the recipe we used that worked nicely:

I have also seen a recommendation to use peeled, uncooked zucchini, pureed in a blender with a little water, for a milk-like substitute for smoothies and such, as long as they had a fruity flavor or something else to mask the zucchini flavor. Might work with gluten-free pancakes or something, too.

Hmmm, other than that...what do you need the milk for? Pureed potatoes, fruits, or veggies might work for thickening soups. Only using frozen fruit for smoothies can eliminate the need for dairy or other liquids to give it bulk. Broth can work well for some soups and sauces, taste-wise.

Hope that might help a little. :-)

Thank you, thank you! Those are all great ideas! The only other thing I would use "milk" for is on cereal...of which i can only eat Rice Chex, and I don't mind eating it dry (with a little cinnamon-sugar ;)). So seems like your suggestions will cover me for milk in all other applications!

I have not tried to make rice milk myself, but that recipe looks super easy! I'll have to give it a try. Thanks so much again for your wonderful ideas and help! :)

I made the rice milk myself and it is super easy, but truth be told, I found that if I did not consume it fast enough (as I only use it on cereal or in my bread recipe) it spoiled rather quickly. Bummer! So, use it quickly. :)

The Good Karma rice milk can be purchased in bulk from places like Amazon. The cartons are small enough that I get through it without waste. Just a thought.

I know you posted this quite some time ago, but I felt I should let you know that I have been playing detective and trying to sort out any lingering traces of gluten that may be getting to me and I have to report that I stopped using the Good Karma rice milk for a week and when I used it this morning, I felt "funny" (and not funny ha-ha :) ---gluten head funny :blink: )...so I wonder about trace gluten in it. Could just be me; I am very sensitive to gluten....but I wonder if you noticed anything when you tried it?
