Homemade Soy Drink

Posted by Dorothy under Natural Highs, Wellness1 comment

Soya Beans

I have recently been introduced to an efficient high speed blender in which soy beans ( U.S ) or soya beans ( U.K ) can be blended finely in less than 1 minute. Since I have been buying my soya milk in a packet, It has been a delight to be able to make it fresh, without preservatives and at a low cost. Since then, I no longer buy packet soya milk and am also able to lower the amount of sugar in my home made drink.

According to the US Food and Drug Administration:

Soy protein products can be good substitutes for animal products because, unlike some other beans, soy offers a ‘complete’ protein profile. … Soy protein products can replace animal-based foods—which also have complete proteins but tend to contain more fat, especially saturated fat—without requiring major adjustments elsewhere in the diet.

So to share the goodness of homemade soya milk, I am giving all my fellow readers the recipe as below:

You will need:

  1. High speed blender
  2. Muslin cloth or bag
  3. Soya beans   150gm
  4. Water            1200ml
  5. Sugar or rock sugar to your liking

Instructions:

  1. Soak the beans for 5-6 hours or overnight
  2. Then remove the skin which will mostly come to the surface of the
    water by scooping or any other way which you find efficient
  3. Blend beans with 600 ml of water
  4. Pour blended ingredients into muslin bag and squeeze juice into a pot
  5. Add the rest of the water and squeeze more of the juice
  6. Then put the pot on the stove to boil
  7. Add in sugar if you choose to
  8. Turn off the fire and leave to cool down

**Adjust the amount of water or weight of beans according to the thickness that you prefer

    HI Dorothy,
    i recently also have the same machine and im glad to use it everyday.
    thank you for sharing this wonderful information.

    For me, i take everything including the skin of the beans. so i didn`t soak it, just dry beans add some water (how much is the water, i guess, would depends on the instructions from the machine) and I add some other grains such as black sesame seeds, barley and corn seeds.

    Its really yummy and you have healthy black hair (one of the best properties of black sesame seeds).

    staying healthy, namaste
