Has anyone tried this in place of milk?  My daughter told me about it and said it was good, but I haven't tried it.  Does it taste similar to milk?  Is it good on cereal?  Does it agree with you?
 
Thanks for your thoughts. turn

I love the stuff. I think it tastes better than milk, straight or on cereal. Though I think it tastes too funky in coffee. Haven't had any GI disagreements with it. Though it is harder on the wallet--$2.35 or so for a QUART vs. about $1.50 for a GALLON of milk.

I use it exclusively for my daily smoothie (usually just combine it with bananas and frozen strawberries) so I'm not sure how it tastes on it's own (funny I've never tried it...) but I LOVE it for the smoothies. Also, it's a bit cheaper for me than GDEN, around $1.99/quart at the Whole Foods in my area.

And here I thought you were going to recount a fascinating dream about rice! I fear I have never heard of this product.

Hi Nanners,
 
My daughter has a ton of food allergies, so we use soy and rice milk. It is extremely watery - looks like very diluted skim milk. The vanilla is quite good. This is what I would use on cereal. I don't recall noting much taste on the regular kind. I combine it w/lemon juice to make buttermilk for my daughter's wheat-free, everything-free pancakes, and they are quite good, too. I would definitely give it a try.

I like it better than soy milk as a substitution for milk, but not better than milk. However, when I am not able to tolerate dairy, I really don't mind drinking Rice Dream. I never tried it in cereal.

I drank this as a child...in the southwest, it is sometimes called horchata. I liked the chocolate one. Food City sold it all the time...it is refreshing on a hot summer day. Oh, and the stuff labeled "horchata" is about half the price as the "rice dream". It is very similar.

My mom used to use soy milk on her cereal, but switched to almond milk recently. She says it's good.

Becoming undone, I don't think this is the same as Horchata. I am married to a Mexican, and regular Horchata has way more sugar in it and I believe made totally different. I love Horchata, but could never imagine putting something like that on my cereal. Way too sweet.

If I'm recalling it right, from my many years of high school and college Spanish, horchata is a milk made from almonds, not from rice.

most, if not all of those alternative milks are fortified with vitamin D2 still... (they surely will switch over someday soon. Most milks and orange juices have made the switch). Experts think vit. D2 actually interferes with D3 uptake. None of us want that! Also, there are questions out there about some of the ingredients in the *flavored* Rice Dream, so you might want to check your label carefully. "Natural flavors" on the label is not always natural... watch out for carrageenan, too... better yet, make your own as Nanners' SIL does! That sounds yummy!

EMom,

I have a question for you. What do we need to watch out for with the carrageenan? The reason I ask is I ate a popsicle recently and noticed it had this in it. I seem to recall that this wasn't good for us, can you elaborate more why?

Thanks!

Yes Spanish from Spain...However in the US, they are influenced by Latin America...like Mexico. It uses just rice, water and flavoring. You can buy the horchata in Chocolate, Vanilla, and Strawberry (fresa). Nanners...some of the vanilla horchatas are used to pour over cereal...kinda like some of the soy milk has a bit of sugar. It's your preference...hope you find something you like...
