Soy milk
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 6-7 cups
  • 2 cups of dried soy beans + water to soak the beans
  • 8 cups of water
  • Sweetener of your choice (optional as plain soy milk is sweet on it's own)
  1. - Soak your beans overnight. Discard the water. It makes about 5⅓ cups of rehydrated beans total.
  2. - For every two cups of soaked beans, I put three cups of water. The last 1⅓ cup will get two cups of water, making 8 cups total. Using your blender, blend the water and beans together. The colour should be a nice white.
  3. - Bring everything to a TALL pot and bring to a boil while stirring. Once it is boiling, start a 20-25 minutes timer and stir once in a while. The reason for a tall pot is that, during the boiling process, the foam will rise A LOT so make sure it's tall enough because it will go overboard very easily.
  4. - Using either a cheese cloth or a nut milk bag, drain the mixture by squeezing. The solids in the bag/cheese cloth is the okara while liquid is your soy milk.
  5. - For a thicker and/or sweetened milk: return the liquid to the stove top and add a thickening agent like tapioca starch and/or a sweetener but I personally like it as is.
