Make Soy Milk Yourself – That’s How It Works

Ingredients: Make your own soy milk at home

For one liter of soy milk you need:

  • 100 grams of dried soybeans
  • Freshwater
  • Depending on your preference, agave syrup or honey for sweetening
  • Pot
  • Strong immersion blender or blender
  • bowl
  • measuring cup
  • Fine sieve
  • Cotton cloth or special nut milk cloth

This is how vegan milk succeeds

It is best to soak the soybeans overnight and for at least ten hours. Drain off the excess water afterward.

  • Bring 650ml of water to a boil in a saucepan.
  • Add another 350 ml of water to the swollen soybeans and puree everything with a hand blender or in a blender.
  • Then simmer the pureed soybeans in boiling water for about ten minutes over low heat.
  • Let the soy mixture cool.
  • Line a fine-mesh sieve with a cotton cloth or nut milk cloth and filter the soy pulp, discarding the milk in a bowl.
  • You now have to boil the soy milk again. Be careful not to overflow or burn the milk. Heavy foaming is completely normal.
  • After about 15 minutes, you can take the soy milk off the stove and let it cool down.
  • Now sweeten your homemade soy milk as you like.
