Enriched Unsweetened

Rice Dream is one of the most prolific rice milk brands. The Enriched Unsweetened Rice Drink has a gentle sweetness (without sugar) and contains a good variety of added nutrients. Because of the canola oil, we'd probably use this for cooking more than for drinking.

Ingredients: Organic Rice Base (Filtered Water, Organic Rice), Organic Expeller Pressed Canola Oil And/Or Organic Safflower Oil And/Or Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Tapioca Starch, Tricalcium Phosphate, Carrageenan, Natural Flavors, Sea Salt, Xanthan Gum, Vitamin A Palmitate, Vitamin D2, Vitamin B12.

Horchata

Folks say this tastes like authentic Mexican horchata. It's deliciously cinnamony but very high in sugar (25 grams in one cup). Try it in coffee.
