    Crazy Vegan Mom: A high-power blender like a vita-mix or blend tech work best, but a basic blender also does the trick. It might not be as “milky” but use a paint thinner strainer (fine mesh bag strainer) to make it extra smooth.

    I can’t believe that rice milk — which is CLEARLY super inexpensive — works as a substitute for milk required recipes (and ice cream)… since it is just blended rice! Craziness I tell you. 🙂 I still need to try the rice or millet hot breakfast one of these days… it always sounds better later in the day, like “shoot, I shoulda tried today.”As I said before, I am not a fan of drinking milk or juice as a beverage for almost a decade now, but I REALLY enjoy my cheese, ice cream, and sour cream in moderation. Like you said in your last post, dairy should be the first to go, but it will be the last citadel to fall for me…Speaking of milk lobbyists, I was talking to my mom a month or so ago about my diet, and she asked me if I am drinking milk, and I said “no” and her response (which I didn’t laugh at her about, despite my inclination) was about that statitic that showed that drinking milk leads to weight loss, i.e. the myth you debunked months ago! In this area, there are people who sell “raw milk”… but there was a recent salmonilia(sp) outbreak because of poor conditions… yuck! Re the rest of the world not drinking cow milk: I think (but not supported by any specific data) that milk or other animal by-products are consumed in the majority of the world. Animals have been bred for their versatility in providing ongoing supplies (like cows and chickens for their milk, blood, and eggs), as well as the use of their bodies (meat, leather, feathers). Around the world, there are other animals, such as yaks (milk, meat, fur) and goats (milk meat). However, it comes down to the “processing” of western culture that has mutated things a bit by using hormones and mechanization to abuse the “nature” out of the process.Sorry about the long post… and for not proof-reading, but i am at work! hehehe
