Recipe: chocolate bean milk and pumpkin rice cake

Posted Mar 07 2011 12:00am

As I mentioned last time , I don’t buy almond breeze anymore because I can make it at home at cheaper cost and more nutritious. A reader requested a tutorial so here it comes.

I use assorted beans, soy bean, black beans, aduki beans and mung beans. I think what makes the end product thick and emulsionated is the black bean, without it, the milk is very watery. So, if you want to use lecithin to make it emulsionated, use black beans.

soak 1/3 cup with plenty of water for at least 12 hours

then I add it to the soy milk maker. If you don’t have it, you can use a blender adding enough water. Usually 3 parts of water for 1 part of the hydrated beans.

after 2o min, the milk is ready. If you are using a blender, after blending it you have to boil the milk for 10 min.

then use a strainer

Note: only make as much as you plan to drink because if you save it for later, the milk and cocoa powder separate.

I have a bag of brown rice flour in the fridge for a while, I didn’t know what to do with it. And then I thought why not make a cake with it and my fav ingredient pumpkin? so Pumpkin Rice Cake was born ;)
