Easy Homemade Soy Milk Recipe

Nowadays, more and more people prefer soy milk to cow or any sort of animal milk. It’s a drink that’s very high in nutrients and it has many advantages over its animal counterpart. Many people buy it directly from the supermarket, but few people know that it’s extremely easy to make your own soy milk with fresh ingredients you can get from your own cupboard.

It’s also much more recommended to make your own soy milk rather than buy it, simply because it has more health perks compared to the one found in supermarkets. One of the greatest advantages is that you know exactly what you put in your drink, and it will not contain any additives. For example, once you make your own soy milk, you will drink it while being assured of the fact that it does not contain any artificial additives such as synthetic flavors, excessive amounts of sugar, preservatives and colorings which can ruin your health.

Plus, once you start making your own soy milk, you can become proud of the fact that your culinary abilities just expanded. Not only that, but you can be sure that your family and friends will also be impressed once they taste the soy milk that you made of your own effort.

How to Make Soy Milk

As already mentioned, it is not a difficult process. To start, you will need these ingredients and materials:

  • 1 cup of raw soybeans
  • 11 cups of water
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • Large bowl
  • Measuring cup
  • Cheesecloth
  • A large stainless steel pot
  • Container
  • Wooden spoon

In order to make the best soy milk, these procedures need to be followed carefully:

  • Place the soybeans in the large bowl and add 2 cups of water, covering them.
  • Let the soybeans soak for about 8 hours (overnight) before transferring the contents in a blender. Once you add 4 cups of water, blend the ingredients until the result is smooth.
  • In the sink, put a large bowl and cover it with the cheesecloth.
  • Pour the contents of the blender into the cheesecloth, and slowly lift the corners. Squeeze as much liquid as you can from the cheesecloth.
  • Pour the resulting liquid into a large stainless steel pot.
  • Put the remaining pulp from the cheesecloth back in the blender and add 3 cups of water. Once again, blend until the mixture is smooth.
  • Repeat steps 3, 4 and 5.
  • Once more, add the remaining pulp in the blender and add 2 more cups of water, coming to your total of 11 cups. Again, blend until the mixture has a smooth texture.
  • Perform 3, 4 and 5 again.
  • Place the stainless steel pot on the stove and let the contents boil over medium heat while stirring with the wooden spoon. Once it’s boiling, lower the heat and remove the excess foam with the wooden spoon. Let it boil 2-3 more minutes before turning off the heat.
  • Add ¼ cup of sugar (or how much you like, depending on your taste) and let it cool. You can add flavors such as vanilla, honey or strawberry. Place the milk in a container and store it in your refrigerator.

Making your own soy milk not only gives you the satisfaction of a job well done, but it also allows you to be healthier by avoiding the market products filled with additives.
