Cashew Orange Apricot Rice Milk
If you'd like to try a new type of rice milk, you'll love this creamy sweet recipe!
The cashews add some protein and heart-healthy fats that will help stabilize sugar levels that otherwise could rise & drop quickly with simple rice milk and will also keep you feeling full for longer. The orange juice provides 22% DV* of vitamin C in just one cup. The apricots contribute 10% DV* of vitamin A, two vitamins that are essential for a strong immune system. Plus, this blend of ingredients is a also a good source of copper, manganese, magnesium, and phosphorus.
Rice milk is the least allergenic of the plant-based milks so especially if you are lactose intolerant or have an allergy to cows milk or soy you can enjoy this delicious plant-based milk as a treat.
