Making your personal soy milk is tremendous straightforward and tremendous low-cost! All you want is a few dried soy beans, water, a blender, a pot to prepare dinner it in and one thing to pressure the milk like a nut milk bag, a jelly bag, or just a few layers of cheesecloth. This tutorial is an enchancment on my earlier soy milk video. The strategy is barely completely different however improves the style of the soy milk and shortens the prep time fairly a bit!

You’ll be able to flavour it along with your alternative of sweetener or use this plain soy milk to make different issues like your personal tofu* or cultured cheese. Remember the fact that this soy milk tastes very completely different from most business manufacturers which often have a dozen elements or extra. However this is very easy and tremendous low-cost to make, I hope you’ll strive it.

*For some cause, extra persons are having hassle making tofu with this soy milk in comparison with the unique soy milk video ( So for that cause, I like to recommend utilizing that methodology as an alternative in case you’re making an attempt to make tofu.

What to do with the leftover pulp? This pulp known as Okara. Do this Okara Sea Burger Recipe:

Different hyperlinks talked about:

Cream Corn “Egg Drop” Soup:

The best way to Make Tofu:

Vegan Condensed Milk:

Makes about 5 cups


1 cup dried soy beans (ideally natural)
5 cups water (plus extra for soaking and rinsing)
Elective sweetener to style (like sugar, agave, maple syrup or stevia)

Fill a medium to massive pot with 1 cup of dried soy beans and loads of water. Convey the water to a rolling boil and let prepare dinner for 1-2 minutes.

Take away the pot from the warmth and let relaxation till it is cool sufficient to the touch.

Drain the beans. Mix the beans with 5 cups of water till the beans properly pureed. This took about one minute with my common 12 pace Oster Blender on the Liquefy setting. In case you have a excessive pace blender, take care to not over mix. It’s possible you’ll must work in a pair batches relying in your blender’s capability.

Pressure the liquid into a big pot utilizing a nut milk bag, jelly bag or just a few layers of cheesecloth over a colander or sieve. The liquid will likely be your soy milk. The pulp, often called okara, could be discarded or utilized in different recipes. **Particularly in case you’re making tofu with this milk, squeeze the okara as dry as doable!**

Switch the milk again to the pot and simmer for 10 to 20 minutes. Throughout this course of, a pores and skin might kind on the prime; that is regular and often called yuba. The yuba could be stirred again into the milk or skimmed off.

After 10 minutes, style the milk to see if the uncooked style has been eradicated. You can even add some sweetener, salt, and/or vanilla for flavouring if desired.

When prepared, pressure the milk right into a container.

Serve the milk scorching or chilly. Add sweetener to style. I exploit about 1 or 2 teaspoons of maple syrup per cup.

Retailer your contemporary soy milk within the fridge for as much as three days. The leftover soymilk pulp (okara) will even keep contemporary within the fridge for about three days.

Strive vanilla, cocoa, cinnamon or different spices to flavour your soy milk. That is your soy milk so customise it to the way you prefer it. There aren’t any guidelines!

    U dont peel the skin of soya beans? The skin is not good for pancreas. My doctor said that

  • Xico Acosta on April 20, 2019

    I made this right now. It tastes surprisingly well, and you don't get the gooey texture that you find in store bought, it is more of a milky texture. It is a little labor intensive. I put a date in the blender for sweetness, and added half of a cinnamon stick when boiling.

  • Gulzar Sania on April 20, 2019

    Is it necessary to boil soy milk..???

  • the last on April 20, 2019

    No need to peel the skins off the beans ?

  • Coe Hart on April 20, 2019

    I freeze in glass jars all the time. You just need to leave enough space for expansion. Many canning jars even have a "freeze line" to show where to fill them to. Love the video though!

  • Jasna Sanoop on April 20, 2019

    Helo, love ur recipes. Could you make a video on how we can make plant based thick yogurt /curd without starter.

  • Avil p on April 20, 2019

    Instead of nut bag, I use my slow juicer to strain the pulp

  • Declan Connnelly on April 20, 2019

    I would suggest soaking and then boiling for at least 15 minutes, the soaking removes phytates and other anti nutrients… Soy even when organic is notorious for causing many gut issues due to these ant nutrients… Just because it's quicker to make instantly doesn't mean it should be done.

  • Sen Chi on April 20, 2019

    ahhhhh… thank you so much
    soaking and peeling is in an insane amount of work for all the soy milk I drink
    will give this a try and hopefully it tastes amazing 🙂

  • deseree okunzuwa on April 20, 2019

    For some reason this method of making soup milk is working more consistent for me. Made several batches already.

  • Alex Steve on April 20, 2019

    should always soak beans to release toxin and enzyme

  • Teresa Thomas on April 20, 2019

  • Mark Myers on April 20, 2019

    We got a Vita Mix. two minutes on high pulverizes the beans, skin and everything. However, I have been cooking them til the beans were soft. If I just soak the beans then make the milk, I get okara. If I cook til the beans are soft, the milk goes right through the flour sack towel (much finer weave than a nut milk bag.) with no okara. I have a home-made strainer (nylon scoop with holes drilled in it.) I watch how long it takes to drain. and add more water to the batch till it looks right. Even so the milk still gets a bit thicker before I have to make another batch. The bean pulp soaks up moisture. I just add a bit more water. Still tastes good, especially in the morning with a dash of clove, cinnamon and honey.

  • Joe Jacovino on April 20, 2019

    thanx been wanting to do all this for quite some time – just met someone who reeeeeaaallly inspired me – thanx Mary and thanx Amy !!!

  • Robin Odowd on April 20, 2019

    I want to see a tutorial on yuba and more on Okara.

  • babyelian77 on April 20, 2019

    Hello, Mary, have you ever tried to make soy yogurt from this soy milk ?

  • longdec2 on April 20, 2019

    Thanks for the recipe. I do have a couple questions. First, your recipe does not say so, but if I boil one cup of soybeans, when I go to mix them with water it is going to be much more than one cup of beans now, I had three cups of beans after boiling. Should it be, one cup of soaked (or
    boiled) soybeans to five cups of water or one cup of raw soybeans, boil them and add all of these beans (now several cups) to the five cups of water? I hope that makes sense.
    Also, the recipe says that I should simmer the strained soymilk for 10-20 minutes, but the video shows the milk boiling and several people in the comments mention boiling it too. Should I boil the soymilk? So far, I have found your soymilk recipes to be the best-tasting soymilk I have made. Thanks.

  • Sowmya shetty on April 20, 2019

    thanks very much. I made soy milk first time at home and found it doable too. Can you please tell what best can be used to sweeten milk when making tea. I used jaggery after switching off the flame and it curdled twice. Third time i added honey and removed from the flame as soon as i felt it could curdle. I want to use a safe and healthy option and not sugar.

  • Aditya Nair on April 20, 2019

    Came out perfect!!!! Thank u so much 😁😁

  • StrawberryMins on April 20, 2019

  • jayson belmoro on April 20, 2019
