Soy milk is a plant-based drink produced by soaking and grinding soybeans, boiling the mixture, and filtering out remaining particules.
The great thing about making your own soy milk at home is that, it is free of preservatives, sugar, and any unwanted ingredients.
Homemade soy milk is very nutritious and it taste better than the store-bought ones. The taste is just so different from the store-bought one. And also it is way very cheap comparing to store-bought. I love homemade food. It saves me more more money and my family’s health. Store-bought things have many hidden and unwanted ingredients. So take some time to make for your family this great soy milk drink.
All you need to make soy milk at home is soybeans, water and a blender. No fancy thing needed.
3 cups dry soybeans
9 cups of water, for soaking
12 cups of water.
A nut milk bag or a strainer, or a fine cloth.
Soak 3 cups of soybeans in water over night.
In the morning you will have 6 cups. Discard soaking water.
Now blend 1 cup of soaked soybeans with with 2 cups of water. (With my blender I always prefer to blend one cup at the time. Because when I put more the mixture does not became smooth as I desire. So I don’t know about yours.) Blend until almost smooth.
Transfer the mixture to the pot and cook everything together for 20 to 30 minutes stirring occasionally.
Once that is done. Drain using a strainer to eliminate the hard part. Now you have your soy milk. You can sweeten it with little honey. Also you can blend it with dates or dry raisins. All this are natural sweeteners, you don’t need sugar.
Enjoy your own homemade soy milk.
