How to Make Homemade Soymilk
By Justina Lee
I used to drink low fat milk but switched to soymilk (soya milk) after reading that
milk is bad for you. What I didn't realize is that soy milk can be unhealthy, especially
if it comes from store bought varieties that contain sweeteners, preservatives, and
additives such as fillers, stabilizers, thickeners and canola oil.
Because of these health concerns, I decided to make my own soymilk. Most homemade
soy milk recipes require a soy milk maker. But this recipe shows you how to make
soy milk at home without using the soy milk machine or any special equipment.
The whole soy milk making process is relatively easy, and I strongly encourage you
to try it out. With just a few simple steps, you'll have healthy home made soy milk
that's 100% natural and organic, for a fraction of the cost!
1. Check the soybeans. Discard any damaged, cracked, or discolored soybeans. Rinse
the soya beans thoroughly, and soak them for at least 10 hours, preferably overnight.
2. Boil 4 cups of water in a large pot. Add ½ teaspoon baking soda to the water as
3. Pour in the soybeans, and blanch for 5 minutes. Discard water in the pot.
4. Drain the soya beans and rinse with hot water.
5. Repeat steps 2-4 one more time.
6. Place the blanched soybeans in your food blender, and add 4 cups of very hot water
(not boiling). Blend on high speed for 3 minutes, until all the beans are broken
7. Strain the soy milk through a cheesecloth into a large pan.
8. Wrap the cheesecloth around the remaining soybean pulp, and squeeze out any remaining
9. Add the salt and sugar to taste. You can skip the sugar, but sugar-free soymilk
has a slight bitter beany taste. Chocolate or vanilla can also be added at this step.
10. Simmer soy milk over a low heat for 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
You can serve soya milk on its own, hot or cold. Or, use it as a base to make delicious
soymilk smoothies, soy puddings and soy yogurt. Homemade soy milk should be refrigerated
if not consumed on the same day. It should stay fresh for about 3-4 days when refrigerated.
This soymilk recipe makes about 6 cups of homemade soya milk.
