While reading my new book Ice Cream the Whole Scoop by Gail Damerow, I was intrigued by the Rice Cream section. The book explains how to make rice milk by soft cooking rice and blending it with water.  This rice milk can then be used in any ice cream recipe!  So I had to try it. Here are the results
Pandan Flavor

Chocolate Banana


They both turned out really good!

The recipes and a lot more info are on my blog.

Brilliant!!!
My son is lactose intolerant, but being 3, LOVES ice cream! Making my own rice-cream would save me about $99957564216467698373564373.65 buying commercial soy-based ice creams!

Thank you for sharing this brillaint idea Smiley

No problem, This turned out so good, no one has to feel like they are missing out on anything. It is even creamier than a lot of the low fat ice creams you can buy.  It is for sure a money saver, rice is already cheap and you hardly need much to make a quart of ice cream.
My daughter loved it, I don't think she believed me when I told her I made it out of rice Grin

Wow, that's a crazy green icecream! I've had commercial rice milk icecream before, but found it to be be more icy than creamy--does that ring true with yours that you made?

The ice cream was really hard right out of the freezer, but after letting it sit out a couple minutes it was scoopable. It has a very creamy texture I think it is the homemade rice milk. It turned out very thick more like rice cream, and the way I made it without straining out any of the rice makes for a lot of solids in the finished ice cream.  And from what I understand solids make icecream creamier, because it makes for less ice crystals. The only negative is it is colder on your tongue than dairy ice cream, kind of like sorbet.

Oh yeah the crazy green is from the pandan extract I used. Not sure why it has so much food color in it but it tastes good.

mmm sounds good--I had never heard of pandan before, I'm going to have to try it (is it easy to find in the states?) and once I have a functioning blender again I'll have to try my hand at some homemade ricecream! thanks for sharing your experience!

Pandan is sometimes referred to as asian vanilla, though it tastes nothing like vanilla. It tastes kinda like jasmine rice smells. I got the extract at an asian supermarket near my house. I have read on the internet recently that you can buy fresh frozen pandan leaves at asian markets as well. that seems like it would result in an even better flavor, like the difference between vanilla extract and fresh vanilla beans.

Pandan is the staple of South East Asian desserts and it's yummy! You can get pastes which are this lurid green (I like it that way) or extracts which impart a minty green colour. Actual pandan leaves (knotted up and thrown in with the mix) work as well but you need plenty to get the flavour. I live in Australia, but pandan is in every Asian grocer and the extract is in our supermarkets.

I really love the bright green one. Must make me some rice milk icecream!

Yes, I love pandan flavor. I have made pandan flavored mochi and now the ice cream. I haven't used it for anything else could you suggest some recipes??
