Rice Milk

Has anyone ever tried or drink rice milk? I am lactose intolerant and I can do okay with Lactaid milk but I really just don't like the way I feel after consuming milk. I am hoping rice milk is something that I can handle drinking.

I prefer soy milk to rice milk, but I suggest trying a few and finding your preference. There is quite a range to choose from. I like the light vanilla soymilk (80 calories/ cup) but there are some that are unsweetened/unflavored, chocolate, and other flavors. The rice milks come in similar varieties. I don't like drinking the rice milk alone, but it is fine on cereal. I like the soymilk enough to drink it alone.

I've only had rice milk once, and I didn't like it very much. I prefer soy milk, Silk brand specifically. They have several flavors, my favorite is the plain one in the red box. I also drink the more flavored (chocolate, vanilla, coffee) ones as a treat, and when I'm trying to pay attention to my carb intake, I drink the unsweetened one.

I too am lactose intolerant I mostly drink soy milk. I tried rice milk from the store but I prefer to make my own, you boil rice with ALOT of water (1 cup raw rice + 3 cups water) after the liquid begins to thicken slightly you pour it through a strainer into a glass container (I use a quart jar w/a glass lid) then refrigerate.
I make delicious smoothies with it also. I cook the rice until it gets really soft then I put about 1 cup (do not drain) into a blender add peaches + about 6-7 ice cubes and blend until smooth, if it seems too thick add a little cold water, you can use any fruit but I likr the peaches most also apples you can pour apple juice instesd of water. You can also add any extract you want or plain YUMMMMM :~}

OOPS.... I meant 6 cups of water NOT 3. in th comment above. I'm sorry I tried to correct it but I couldn't go back. 1 CUP RAW RICE TO 6 CUPS OF WATER.

also almond milk available. I prefer it. You probably don't need cow milk, so if it doesn't sit well with you, don't drink it. Calcium is readily available in most leafy green veggies

Pacific Foods makes a hazelnut milk that is rice milk based and super yummy! Also, choc Rice Dream milk is a great healthy snack. Makes good desserts too. Perfect for making low fat instant pudding.

Here's a nutritional comparison from the peer trainer files:

Rice milk - 1 cup, 120 calories, 2 g fat, 0 g protein, 25 g carbs, 0 calcium
Soymilk, calcuim fortified - 1 cup, 98 calories, 4g fat, 8 g carbs, 1 g sugar, 7g protein
Soumilk, regular - 127 calories a cup, 5 g fat, 3g fiber, 1 g sugar, 11 g protein.

Here's data from the Trader Joe's organic unsweetened soy milk - 1 cup 90 calories, 4.5g fat, 4 g carbs, 2 g fiber, 2g suarfs, 9g protein.

Types vary, but most rice milks do not have much to offer for the calories in the way of protein, good fats or fiber, and they are very high in carbohydrates.
They taste pretty good, but I prefer other alternatives. Go to the store and study the nutritional data, I like the TJ unsweetened but it's probably too bland for most people to tolerate. I like to add a little sugar free almond flavoring to make it paletable.
