Homemade Brown Rice Cereal - Weelicious

Making your own Homemade Brown Rice Cereal is easy, economical, fun and a great thing to do for your baby.


Like a lot of moms, I started feeding my kids brown rice cereal when they were 6 months old. Even with all my time logged in the kitchen, I never even thought about making it homemade. For that you have to credit the big corporate baby food companies, who perform some of their most impressive marketing when it comes to this tried and true first food. Now it amazes me how while I bought it by the boxful, it didn’t occur to me for the longest time just how easy it would be to make it on my own. It’s a shocking thing to admit given that it’s almost as simple a recipe as boiling water.  All you need is a blender and brown rice — it’s truly the easiest meal you can make for your baby. 

Packed with iron, magnesium and other vitamins and minerals, homemade brown rice cereal makes a perfect first food for babies. It’s nutritional value way surpasses white rice cereal, where all the good stuff is stripped out, leaving not much behind. The other awesome part about the DIY version besides the ease of making it and the health benefits is that it costs a mere fraction of what we pay for boxed rice cereal. Why spend all that money on one simple ingredient? You’re basically just paying for pretty packaging. Even if you buy the most expensive organic brown rice you can find, per serving you’ll still be paying less than the equivalent amount of rice cereal you’d buy in the store.

And while you’ve got your blender out making a batch of this recipe you could whiz up some Homemade Oatmeal Cereal too. This is something I always enjoyed doing with my kids when they were babies. It’s a great way for them to make early connections about where there food comes from.

Try it and you’ll always have a simple food on hand that your baby will love!

Make sure to read the recipe card below for the full ingredient list and instructions!

  • Rice: I recommend using organic short grain brown rice in this recipe. Brown rice has health benefits and loads of nutrients in it, as opposed to white rice, which has all of the key nutrients stripped from it. I strongly recommend using organic brown rice as the cost difference ounce-per-ounce is very small. The organic variety has not been soaked in pesticides and has significantly less arsenic in it. You can use either short or long-grain organic brown rice for this recipe.
  • Water: This will be added to cook the rice. You can also use sodium-free bone broth or sodium-free veggie broth for more nutrients and flavor or a mixture of broth and water.
  • Liquid for Blending: While blending the rice, you’ll need to add more liquid to thin out the rice into a puree. You can use water, bone broth, veggie broth, fresh breast milk, or formula.

TIME-SAVING TIP:  If you are in a rush, you can use quick-cooked brown rice (I like the organic brown basmati rice from Trader-Joes) that only takes 20 minutes to cook!

Soaking the Rice

Soaking brown rice (or any grain) helps remove some of the naturally occurring phytic acids, which are some of the hard-to-digest components of the grain. Getting rid of these acids speeds up the cooking time and makes the rice easier to digest.

If you are introducing grains as your baby’s first food, soaking the grains would be helpful as your baby would have an easier time digesting the puree.

But if thinking 2-8 hours ahead of time is holding you back from making your own cereal, then feel free to skip this step.

How to Soak Rice: Place 1 cup of rice in a medium bowl and add 2-3 cups of hot water (enough to cover the rice) and leave at room temperature for at least 2 hours. You can also leave it overnight. Drain the rice and rinse well. Follow the recipe below on cooking and pureeing instructions, but note that the rice will cook faster, so check the rice after 20 minutes.

How to Make Baby Rice Cereal
  1. Rinse Rice: Place the rice in a fine-mesh colander and rinse with cold water until the water runs clear. This will help remove any excess starch from the rice grains and make the rice fluffier and easier to blend. PLEASE DO NOT skip this step, or your puree will be starchy.
  2. Add to Saucepan: Add the water and the rice to a medium saucepan, cover, and bring to a boil over high heat.
  3. Cook: Once at a boil, turn down the heat, and let simmer on low for 35-45 minutes or until the water is gone and the rice is tender. Rice cooking times vary, so taste test the rice after 35 minutes to see if it is tender.
  4. Sit: Remove from heat and let it sit for 10 minutes.
  5. Blend: Transfer the cooked rice to a blender or food processor and blend for 1-2 minutes, adding liquid to thin out the rice puree.
  6. Store:  I recommend storing a small quantity of the rice puree in the fridge for use that week and then freezing the rest for future meals.

Tools Needed
  • Blender or Food Processor
  • Storage Containers for Fridge
  • Freezer Tray
  • Stasher Bag
  • highchair
  • suction bowl or baby bowl
  • baby spoon
  • open lid cup
  • bib with catch pocket

Other Cooking Methods

I have found that cooking the rice first and then blending, creates the smoothest rice cereal for your baby. But there are a couple of other ways to make rice cereal for your baby.

Instant Pot

You can cook small or large batches of white or brown rice in your instant pot. For white rice, you will put 1 cup of rice and 1 cup of water into the instant pot and cook for 3 minutes with a natural pressure release until the pin drops. For brown rice, you will put 1 cup of rice and 1 cup of water into the instant pot and cook for 24 minutes with a natural pressure release until the pin drops. Feel free to double the recipe if needed.

Rice Powder

  1. Grind Rice: Place 1 cup of uncooked rice in a coffee grinder or blender. Grind for 1-2 minutes or until you have a very fine rice powder.
  2. Add Hot Water: In a microwave-safe bowl, add in roughly 1 tablespoon rice powder and 1-2 tablespoons hot or boiling water. Stir until smooth adding more water if needed. Let sit until warm enough to eat.

Frequently Asked Questions

When can babies eat rice cereal?

Babies can have rice cereal as one of their first foods. When a baby can start on solids is determined by their own rate of development, which generally comes between 4-6 months of age. Some of the developmental milestones babies need to reach in order to start solids include: if your baby has solid control of their head and neck, if your baby has doubled in weight, and if your baby is reaching for or opening their mouth when you eat (see my guide here). Before you start your baby on purees, you should consult with your pediatrician to make sure your child is developmentally ready.

Can rice cereal be the baby’s first food?

Rice can 100% be your baby’s first food if you want it to be. It is recommended to wait to introduce the top eight allergen foods to your baby once a few other well-tolerated foods have been introduced, but otherwise, foods can be introduced in any order so choose whatever you are most excited for your baby to have.

Is rice a common allergen for baby?

No, rice is not a common allergen, however, as with any food, start with a small portion and be aware of any signs that might be an allergic reaction after introducing it.

Does rice cause constipation for babies?

Rice may cause constipation in babies since it absorbs water and may make it harder to pass stools. Switch to a different whole grain like oatmeal if your baby is having a hard time digesting rice. 

How to Store Rice Cereal

This baby rice cereal is quick and effortless to freeze and reheat, making it convenient to have on hand. The frozen cubes are easy to grab and reheat right before mealtime.

How to Freeze
  • After you blend the rice into a puree, you can pour the rice cereal into freezer-safe trays . Do not overfill. 
  • Place the tray into the freezer for 3-4 hours or until completely frozen.
  • Transfer the cubes of frozen rice cereal into a Stasher Bag or ziplock baggie.
  • This puree will last 4 days in the fridge and for up to 4 months in the freezer.

How to Re-Heat
  • Take the number of frozen cubes you want to feed your baby for that meal and place them in a microwave-safe container.
  • Heat in the microwave for 30-second intervals until warm, stirring after every session.
  • You can also take the frozen cubes and place them in a small saucepan on the stove, heating on low and stirring continuously.
  • NOTE: The puree will be thick when you reheat it. You can thin it back out by adding other purees (see the list below for some of my favorite options), fresh or frozen breast milk, formula, or water. Add a little at a time, stirring in-between.

Label Tip: Don’t forget to label your purees before you place them in the fridge or freezer with the name of the puree and date you made it. Take it from me, you will completely forget when and what is in your freezer by the end of the week;).

Rice Comination Purees

While Rice is great by itself, it’s also super easy to mix and match with other nutrient-dense baby food purees. Give these fun flavor combos a try!

Stage 1 Purees
  • Apple Puree
  • Sweet Potato Baby Food Puree
  • Green Bean Baby Puree
  • Carrot Puree
  • Roasted Banana Baby Puree

Stage 2 Combination Purees
  • Superpower Green Baby Food Puree
  • Apple, Spinach + Broccoli Baby Food Puree
  • Sweet Potato, Carrot, Cauliflower Baby Food Puree with Chia Seeds
  • Banana, Cherry + Beet Baby Food Puree
  • Roasted Root Veggies + Thyme Puree
  • Broccoli + Asparagus Baby Food Puree with Tarragon
  • Mango + Kale Baby Food Puree with Ginger

Feeding Tips

  • Place a small amount of puree on the tray during spoon feeding – so that your baby can dip their fingers or hands in the puree. Allowing baby to explore foods in this way helps them learn to self-feed and can help them be more willing to try new textures and foods in the future.
  • Have a spare spoon (or three!) – even very young babies often want to be involved in feeding themselves as much as possible. Giving baby an extra spoon to hold can be helpful in giving her a sense of control and also promotes hand-eye coordination.Allow baby to use spoons as a teether during the meal. There are many great options out there but a few we particularly love include the Olababy 3 Piece Set, the NumNum Pre-Spoon GOOtensils, and the ChooMee FlexiDip Baby Starter Spoons.
  • Purees are great to keep in your baby’s regular rotation of foods – but if you start feeding with traditional weaning using purees, make sure to progress beyond eating ONLY purees. Once baby can safely and comfortably swallow purees (usually by 7 or 8 months) it’s time to introduce other textures, such as teething biscuits and soft cooked finger foods. Moving onto additional textures in a timely manner may help prevent feeding difficulties at a later age.

  • 1 cup brown rice (I prefer organic short grain)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1-2 cups liquid for blending (fresh breast milk, formula, water)
  • Rinse Rice – IMPORTANT STEP: Place the rice in a fine-mesh colander and rinse with water until the water runs clear.

  • Cook: Transfer the rice to a medium saucepan and add 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to low, cover with a lid and simmer for 35-45 minutes or until the rice is tender and the water is evaporated. Each batch of rice cooks a little differently, so taste at 35 minutes to see if the rice is tender.

  • Let Rest: Remove the saucepan from the heat and let rest for 10 minutes, covered. If using fresh breast milk or formula for blending, remove the lid and let the rice cool for 15 minutes.

  • Blend: Place the rice into a blender or food processor and add 1/2 cup of liquid of choice. Blend for 1-2 minutes on medium-high speed until completely smooth and creamy, adding in the additional liquid in 1/4 cup increments, if needed, until you have your desired consistency.

  • Eat: Serve to baby or freeze for later.

Age: 4-6 months and up

Yield: roughly 20 ounces

Many modern diets include cargo or brown rice, which is unusual in our area. Those who want to lose weight began to think about a new way: experts say that brown rice saturates the body with vitamins and helps to effectively cleanse the body. Let's talk more about the benefits and harms of brown rice and look at some interesting recipes.

What is the difference between brown rice and regular rice

First of all, brown rice is the most common cultivated rice that we are used to seeing on our tables. Its difference from white grain is not in its variety or specific color, but in the fact that brown grain is not ground. This is a small difference, however, it causes many significant changes in the composition of the grain.

Plain white rice, after being removed from the ears, is dehusked, crushed, the bran and germ are removed, after which healthy cereal flakes are added to our food. Brown rice is not cleaned or ground, so the grain is cut off: it contains more protein, fiber and vitamins that accumulate in the shell of the grain. Such a cereal saturates the body well and promotes weight loss, if used correctly, according to several rules, which will be discussed below.

Brown rice is very popular in Asian and Southern cuisines as well as in Mexican dishes. Like all products, it is not completely safe for the body and requires special procedures and standardized use to make it useful. Proper preparation makes it a valuable source of nutrients, and you should not forget its unique, delicate taste and smell.

Well-cooked brown rice has a slight nutty flavor and delicate sweetness, some varieties have a distinct fruity taste, so this rice goes well with both savory dishes and desserts, and tastes not only hot, but also after cooling. Most often, it is added to dishes with vegetables, in combination with fish and chicken, or in fruit cereals. Brown rice is also great for casseroles and stews.

Light and nutritious flakes are ideal for a balanced diet menu. An important nuance, as a plus to its taste: you do not feel on a diet without delicious food. However, many nutritionists and cooks note that the difference between brown and white rice is small, so there is no need to cross out regular porridge from the diet. To stay healthy and diversify your diet, all you have to do is use different cooking methods

Ingredients and Calories

Due to the fact that brown rice preserves the internal microflora of the body and contains protein bran, its calorie content is somewhat reduced, and nutritional value is increased. It contains about 330-360 kcal per 100 g, 7.5 g of protein, up to 2 g of fat and over 75 g of carbohydrates.

It combines all the value of white rice with the benefits of its bran :

  • calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, zinc, manganese, sodium, phosphorus, iodine, selenium;
  • vitamins B, PP, K, H, E;
  • antioxidants, sorbents;
  • valuable amino acids and beneficial fat compounds.

One of the important factors for allergy sufferers is the fact that rice does not contain gluten, which often irritates the intestines and disrupts digestion in many people.

However, it is important to know that raw rice contains poisonous substances that protect the grain from external influences. Therefore, it is important to properly process and boil the grains in order to remove their excess, leaving only the healthy ingredients.

During the day, an adult is recommended to eat no more than 200 g of ready-made porridge for women and 250 g for men. Brown rice is not recommended to be consumed often: up to 2-3 times a week.

There are also different ways to improve health :

  • organize fasting days on one rice;
  • diet for 3-5-7 days;
  • light meals after overeating or drinking alcohol.

Brown rice is recommended for children and the elderly, introduced into the diet for medical reasons. Let's take a closer look at what brown rice is used for and how it heals the body.

Brown rice glycemic index

The brown cereals glucose increase index is 45-50 units. This means that this porridge can be used in diabetes. I must say that any cereal with a large supply of carbohydrates will increase blood glucose levels, so eat such dishes carefully. However, compared to many grain brethren…Brown rice is one of the most difficult cereal pancakes to work with.

Moderate consumption will help normalize blood sugar levels, avoid sudden spikes and drops, keep you full for several hours and eliminate nervous hunger. The glycemic index of a product is important not only for diabetics. This indicator should be taken into account when determining the correct baby food, sports nutrition, as well as the diet for workers in physically difficult professions.

High GI foods contain rapidly degrading carbohydrates. Therefore, their blood sugar level rises sharply, but after a short time the body starves again. A low GI level means that the product is slowly digested, gradually saturating the body. In combination with the swelling of fiber, such food provides a feeling of satiety for a long time: the body is busy digesting food and does not require snacks.

On diets, this property will help you lose weight, not overeat, will allow you to restore the digestive system after an illness without overloading the body. In sports, children's and working diets, he will maintain a charge of energy for several hours, preventing fatigue and drowsiness. In addition, it helps to calm the nervous system and not think about food all the time.

In brown rice, the combination of vitamins and minerals, valuable fibers, amino acids and long carbs helps you stay awake and active throughout the day. At the same time, this product is very pleasant to the taste. The product will be an excellent basis for the preparation of dried fruit desserts without harm to the health of diabetics and for lean nutrition.

Benefits of brown rice

Brown rice, or cargo, is rich in valuable ingredients that make it beneficial for the body.

  1. Normalizes the nervous system, relieves signs of stress and chronic fatigue, strengthens cells.
  2. Participates in hematopoiesis, preventing the development of anemia and accelerating the process of congestion, which contributes to rejuvenation, weight loss and proper functioning of the whole organism.
  3. Strengthens bones and stimulates the development of the muscular system, increases tissue elasticity.
  4. Cleanses the intestines and removes toxins, gives a binding effect, normalizes the absorption of nutrients.
  5. It is an antioxidant, removing carcinogens and radicals from the body.
  6. Maintains the health of nails and hair, makes the skin elastic, contributing to the saturation of cells with moisture.
  7. Stimulates the immune system.
  8. Promotes rejuvenation and renewal of the body.
  9. Helps remove fluids from the body and relieve swelling.
  10. Participates in the normalization of reproductive functions in men and women.
  11. Eliminates signs of diarrhea and intoxication.
  12. Increases endurance and performance.

The product is considered dietary and healthy compared to other cereals due to the content of bran, the absence of allergenic proteins, reduced carbohydrate content, and a valuable vitamin complex.

Of course, brown rice is not a panacea. It can be enjoyed for variety and overall health benefits, and for a strong health benefit, it should be paired with other healthy foods.

Can children eat brown rice

In the children's diet, brown rice is useful for normalizing appetite and stool, protects against the formation of toxins, and regulates metabolism. Valuable minerals in the composition of cereals will help in the development of the child's body. Particularly important are calcium and manganese, which strengthen bones, as well as iron, which is involved in the process of hematopoiesis and protects the child from anemia.

Do not cook rice too hard: the product can be difficult for a child's weak digestive system. Therefore, before serving, such rice must be boiled or even chopped in a blender. The main task is to soak rice in a mixer to protect the dish from heavy compounds that are dangerous for the child's body.

It is better not to offer such food to young children, but to introduce cereals into the diet from 5-6 years old. You can start introducing a new product from once a week. Since children do not need to restrict carbohydrates, because active children have time to spend all their energy, it is better to give children regular rice and supplement the mineral complex with other foods.

With brown rice, you can not only cook a delicious exotic pilaf with seafood or vegetables added to meat and fish, but also offer children a delicious charlotte or porridge with fruits, nuts and honey - this will be a very healthy dessert for a growing child.

Useful properties of brown rice for weight loss

Several nuances are important in the process of losing weight :

  1. Cleansing the body - removing toxins from the liver, removing toxins from the intestines, normalizing metabolism.
  2. Appetite control - eat nutritious food and avoid feeling hungry.
  3. Reduction of calorie intake in food.
  4. Physical culture and physical activity.

All of these points are easy to see when eating brown rice :

  1. Perfectly cleanses the digestive system by improving absorption.
  2. Makes you feel full for hours, allowing you to eat less.
  3. Provides essential nutrients to increase stamina, vitality and well-being.
  4. Removes excess fluid from the body.
  5. Improves skin condition, maintains muscle tone, which is important for body care and detoxification.
  6. Improves blood flow and stimulates fat burning.

Using brown rice as a dietary product makes it easier to go on a diet without feeling sick, lethargic or irritable.

Experts recommend several diet options for brown rice:

  1. Overeating Detox . If you drank the day before or ate a lot of heavy food, then you do not need to compensate for this the next day, because the body will need strength to restore its normal state and cleanse itself. You can resort to the rice diet. Just eat a small portion of rice with vegetables for breakfast and have a snack. It will act as a sorbent, cleanse the intestines and saturate the body with the necessary elements.
  2. Once a month or two you can have a rice fasting day . Giving your body some time to digest heavy fats, proteins, and sweets will cleanse your blood and intestines, rejuvenate you, and make you feel better. On fasting day, eat only brown rice in small portions. It should be prepared without sugar and additives, with a small amount of high-quality vegetable oil. You can also supplement your diet with herbal infusions.
  3. There are also mixed diets, including brown rice . They last 3-7 days, after which you will have to cancel the product for a while. They combine brown cereal with vegetables and fruits, stews, eggs and beans. Grains are included in a variety of meals, from entrees to desserts, and servings are calculated to balance body weight and reduce daily calorie intake.

Patients suffering from ailments should always consult a physician before introducing new foods to the diet to ensure that all individual nuances are taken into account.

Brown rice in medicine

Official medicine refers to brown rice without prohibiting its use. Western and Asian nutritionists are actively introducing it into weight loss and regeneration programs for various diseases, because the product is light, rich in ingredients and very palatable.

For diabetes

For diabetic patients, brown rice can be an excellent substitute for high-calorie cereals. It helps maintain normal sugar levels, also fights cholesterol and promotes weight loss. Brown rice can be not only an addition to the dish, but also a substitute for unhealthy desserts: porridge with a delicate nutty honey flavor (or without the addition of a sweetener), with dried fruits and seeds will become a luxurious dish that will replace dietary restrictions.

With pancreatitis

For pancreatitis, fasting is usually prescribed, and a light brown rice diet can be switched to maintain the body. It is rich not only in carbohydrates, but also in useful amino acids, vitamins, which helps to restore the body after an exacerbation of the disease.

To reduce the risk of spoilage, rice should be thoroughly soaked and boiled, then grated in a mixer. Such a puree will support the normal functioning of the digestive tract and will not overload the internal organs. Of course, the dish should be prepared without adding sugar and fat.

With gastritis

People suffering from gastric insufficiency should be very careful with raw rice. The product can be eaten, but it should be boiled, ground in combination with milk and other soft ingredients. Often it is better not to eat such rice, so as not to cause an exacerbation of the disease. You can opt for white rice, which won't do you any harm.


People prone to hemorrhoids and constipation should not use brown rice or should be limited to small portions. You will have to stop diets based solely on brown foods, as they can have a strengthening effect and aggravate the situation. However, you can compensate for this lack of brown rice by combining it with pumpkin or pear porridge. Then the components will be balanced.

For gout

Rice grains are one of the approved and even beneficial treatments for gout due to their antioxidant and cleansing action. There are no purines or other compounds that promote the development of fungi and bacteria.

Thus, the 2 main signs are the smell and humidity of rice. If the product starts to give off a musty smell during home storage, it will have to be thrown away, because even heat treatment will not clean up such porridge. Do not shop for wet rice that has an unpleasant odor or appearance.

Also note important features:

  1. The color of the rice should be light brown or reddish. Too dark or light grains mean that the product is fake or spoiled.
  2. Grain size should be approximately the same: all rice should be of the same grade.
  3. "Healthy" cereals are quite important, and they are usually imported goods. Today, they can be found not only in health food stores, but also in ordinary markets. And inexpensive cereals of an indefinite type should raise doubts about its quality.

This rice should be stored in a closed cereal tin and never in an open container. Many people recommend storing "live" rice in the refrigerator: this way it will retain its valuable properties longer and be protected from the environment. It should not be kept in the refrigerator.
