Ok so I can go on and on about its benefits but I guess you are already itching to get the recipe, fret not ,it’s so easy to make and very pocket friendly , you guys know am all for homemade goodness that doesn’t empty the pocket .
To make soya milk, you will need the following ingredients and equipment
3 Cups soya beans
Sugar or honey
First you will need to pick the soya beans free of any dirt and stones after wards you will wash the beans and soak in water over night.
By the next morning you will notice that the beans has doubled or tripled in size and that’s fine, don’t fret , just rinse the beans in clean water and try to take off its peel, which should come of easily since it’s been soaked all night.
The next thing you need to do is to divide the soya beans into sizes you know your blender can take, if you have a big blender you can go ahead and blend with enough water to cover it all at once, but if your blender is small feel free to blend in two or three batches.
Blend it smooth with enough water and then strain the paste through a cheese cloth or a very fine and clean mesh.
Pour the strained liquid into a large pot and bring to boil under medium heat, don’t leave it to boil please, you have to stir constantly to avoid it curding up on the bottom of the pot.
You will notice that it has a lot of foam on the top, don’t worry, just keep stiring and cook till all the foam is gone.
Now transfer your milk into a large bowl and allow to cool, once cooled add in your vanilla extract 1or 2 teaspoons and then add your sugar or honey to your preference.
Pour into a jug or bottles and cool in the fridge till its cold, and viola! That’s your soya milk drink!
