How to Make Your Own Organic Soy Milk

Standard

If you’re gonna go ahead and eat soy, you might as well do it right. That is to say buy only organic soy products from trusted brands, or make your own from scratch. This is nothing to get stressed over, you can do it. It’s easy!

First you’ll need to buy or make the milk.  I’m thinking you already know how to buy it, so here’s how to make it.

SOY MILK

You need: huge pot (holds 1-3 gallons), blender or food processor, lg. bowls, wooden spatula or spoon, cheesecloth, colander or strainer, jars

4 gallons + 1/4 C. water

3 C.  organic soy beans

(if making the milk for drinking ~ 3/4 C. sweetener of your choice. )

1. Clean beans, cover in water and soak over night.

2. Put 1 C. soaked, soft beans in blender with 1/3 of the water they soaked in. Add 4 more cups water if possible and puree until very smooth.

3. Place colander over pot and layer with cheesecloth. Pour mixture into pot.  Squeeze moisture out of pulp and replace in the blender.

4.  Add any left over water from the 4 C. plus 3 more C. on top of that if possible. Puree and repeat step 3.

5. Add 2 final C. water and repeat process. You should now have a fair amount of milk in your pot.  Use the pulp for compost.

Slowly start to heat milk on medium until it becomes fragrant, (maybe 10 minutes) as you process remaining beans 1 C. at a time. When you can smell the fragrance turn up the heat and stir milk to prevent scorching, and constantly as soon as it boils. Boil for atleast 3 minutes, remove as much foam as possible while stirring.

Skim more foam as milk cools. Add any sweetener now if it is for drinking, as the warm milk will help disolve the syrup, honey or sugar. Wait to add flavors until it has cooled all the way. Use cocoa, vanilla, fruits, or anything you can think of that you might like. Experiment with small amounts and see what you prefer before flavoring the entire batch.
