Almond milk can be made successfully in a soy milk maker. Just measure and soak the almonds as you would the soybeans, then process in the machine.
Rice milk is a little trickier. I recently experimented with simply measuring and soaking the rice as I did the soybeans. The results were disappointing. The milk smelled great, but was thin and watery. I got a lot of rice pulp left over that I probably could have used as breakfast cereal (I threw it all out in frustration - but would keep it next time). I think I'm going to try again but measure out significantly more rice. The problem, I think, is concentration. Because the rice grains are smaller, they're settling together more closely and are not filling up the cup. Also the rice has less fat and does not bulk up as much as the soy.
I'd really like to make rice milk successfully too. It is very expensive. I will keep experimenting and let you know the results. An alternative thought is to cook brown rice in lots of water, then blend and strain. This is similar to a method that is generally employed to make nutmilks when you do not have access to a fancy machine. It might be a little more labor-intensive, but it could be worth the savings if you have the time.
