Make Your Own Soya Milk

Soya milk is a healthy beverage plus it is inexpensive compared to cow’s milk although it doesn't contain calcium. Making your own soya beverage is easy and it is much cheaper than to buy it in a supermarket though it is more convenient to purchase than to go through all the process of making soya drink.  But since we love to drink soya milk at home it is much more practical for us to make our own soya milk and be sure there’s no preservatives in it. Also, I sometimes like to do things on a traditional.

There is a soy milk machine that you can use to which is pretty cool but it is also quite expensive. If you don’t have a soy milk machine a blender would do. 

1 cup soya beans

Equipment Needed:
Large pot
Bowl (large enough to soak the beans)
Cheese cloth (or any clean cloth for straining)
Spatula (this will be used for stirring)

1. Soak the soy beans in a bowl of water for about 8-12 hours. Make sure that the water covers the top of the beans.  If possible change the water a few times during soaking time.
2. Put your rinsed and drained beans in a blender with just enough water to cover and blend your soy beans.
3. Blend for 2-3 minutes or until turned into foamy puree.
4. In large pot add 7-8 cups of water then add the soybean mixture. Bring to boil and then simmer for about 30 minutes. This will bring into a foam, just stir it to bring it down the foam or add a little bit of cold water.
5. Pour the soybean mixture in a cheese cloth and squeeze out as much as liquid as you can.

Ready to Drink Soya Milk

You can also strain the soybean mixture before cooking, either way you will likely to achieve the same results. Soybeans contains enzymes that is why you need to make sure to cook it for 25-30 minutes to avoid the beany and bitter taste of the finished product. I’m sure you won’t like to drink soy milk that is bitter. Add sugar to taste. Lastly, you can add cocoa or vanilla for flavoring if desired.

Better serve hot or cold.
