Dear Jolene
According to the SA Food Table, fat-free cow's milk contains 146 kJ, 3.4 g of protein, 0.2 g of fat, 4.9 g of carbohydrates and 123 mg of calcium per 100 ml and it is probably the most natural health beverage available. According to Internet sources, rice milk contains 210 kJ, only a trace of protein, 0,8 g of fat, 10,3 g of carbs and only 10 mg of calcium per 100 ml. Rice milk is, therefore, higher in energy, fat and carbs, but very low in protein and calcium. Of the 2 beverages you would obtain the best nutrient value from fat-free cow's milk.
