Homemade Organic Baby Rice Cereal


Makes about 6 servings

  • 1/4 cup organic brown rice
  • 2 cups of water

In a food processor or Baby Bullet (or anything that has a milling blade), add rice and grind to a fine powder. It usually takes about 5 minutes in a food processor.

Add the rice powder to a pot with the water. Whisk so it doesn't clump. Cook until it boils, then cover and turn the heat to low. Cook for 20 minutes or until it reaches the consistency you want (should be a little thinner than applesauce). If it clumps, use an immersion blender to thin it out.

Pour the cooked cereal through a sieve to remove any lumps or chunks of rice.

Allow to cool then serve to your baby with a spoon. I recommend adding some breast milk or formula to the cooked cereal as well...this thins out the cereal and adds a flavor they already know and enjoy.

If saving for a later date, pour it into storage cups to freeze or refrigerate. You can refrigerate up to 3 days or freeze for 30 days. Make sure you label your cereal! Once you are ready to serve, heat the refrigerated or frozen cereal up in the microwave and allow to cool to just warmer than room temperature. Add breast milk or formula to thin it out.

Tip: You can grind up extra rice and store it in an airtight container for future use. 

*Consult your pediatrician before feeding your baby solid foods and to see what amount/type of food you should give your child.
