Vegans and people who are lactose intolerant appreciate soy milk as a dairy-free substitute in milkshakes, puddings, soups, and creamy sauces. Soy milk contains fiber; it's a good source of protein, low in saturated fat and cholesterol-free. Nowadays, it is very easy to make at home. With 3 cups of soy beans, we can make about 1 gallon of soy milk.
Well you can buy sweetened soya milk in packets, but it's quite easy to make your own if you have yellow soya beans. I've photographed the milk sitting on dried soya beans, but if you can get fresh yellow or even green soya these both work well.
- 100 gms Soya Beans
- 500 ml Water
- 70 Sugar
- Rinse the soya beans to clean them. If the beans are dried, soak them overnight to soften them.
- Blend the soya beans with water and sieve the mixture in a fine cloth sieve to remove the skin and pulp, leaving yourself with a white liquid.
- Heat in a pan with soya and the sugar until boiling then simmer for 10 minutes.
- Serve chilled.
