Soy milk is by far the most widely used dairy milk alternative, but not necessarily the best.
- 140 g soy beans (ideally split soy beans)
- 3 litres boiling hot water
- 1 litre cold water
Take the soybeans in a pan and pour 3 litres of boiling water over them. Cool and wait 6-12 hours. Drain the beans, add 1 litre of cold water and blend in a blender for 3 minutes. Remove the soy milk from the solids by squeezing the mixture through a cheesecloth. Bring the soy milk to a boil and continue boiling for 10 minutes.
If you are making milks regularly, milk making machines are available in the US that are not very expensive and which are very efficient.
Yield – 1 litre
Please note that this milk is devoid of fibre.
