Now I am doing that with milk. Ike, my 13 year old, loves his milk, but that milk isn't very good for him. So I am slowly replacing the milk he drinks with rice milk. It will be interesting to see if he notices a change.
He is using that milk on the granola I made yesterday:
I like this recipe because it tastes better than store bought, the kids can help make it, it has much less fat than other recipes I've tried, it makes the house smell wonderful, and it is so easy to make! We had friends over last night and served this for dessert with fresh fruit (strawberries and pineapple) and ice cream (for our non-vegan friends). They loved it.
In a large bowl mix:
- 3 1/2 cups rolled oats
- 1 1/2 cup raw nuts (I like whole and chopped nuts: almonds, cashews, walnuts, pecans - what ever you like)
- 1 cup mixed raw seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, flax, unhulled sesame seeds)
- 3/4 cup All Bran Buds
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 t nutmeg
- 1/3 cup honey (you can cut this to 1/4 if you like)
- 1/4 cup canola oil
Store in airtight container.
