ELEVEN CUPS OF WATER
ONE CUP OF SOYBEANS
1 / 4 CUP OF SUGAR OR DEPENDING ON YOUR SWEETNESS LEVEL
- In a bowl, combine the soybeans and two of the eleven cups of water.
- The soybeans should be under the level of the cups of water poured.
- Soak the soybeans over night or at least eight hours and be sure to maintain the higher water level over the soy bean. Add more water if it went below the required water level.
- Put the soaked water in a blender and followed by the soy beans left from the bowl.
- Add four cups of water and blend it until it is smooth.
Now don’t drink them yet! It looks milky and yummy already but it won’t taste great yet.
- Once they are smooth already, pour the mixture into a cheesecloth which you will hold next over a pot.
- Squeeze the cheesecloth thoroughly until you extract as much liquid.
- After squeezing the liquid, put the remaining soy bean back in the blender and add another three cups of water.
- Once again, blend it until it is smooth.
- Do the straining process again using the cheesecloth.
- Now repeat the same process of putting the remaining soy bean pulp in the blend and this time add two cups of water.
- Yup, strain the mixture again after.
You are finally done with your raw soy milk. But no, we are not yet done with the actual soy milk!
- Now put the pot (with raw soy milk) on the stove and turn the heat to high level.
- Make sure to stir your mixture until it boils. Be careful not to stick the soy milk to the pot’s bottom.
- Boil mixture for about two to three minutes. Skim the top to get foam off.
The best part here is putting some tasty flavors to your creation!
- Add some sugar, about 1 / 4 cup to make it sweet.
- You can add some vanilla, chocolate or probably strawberry to flavor your soy milk.
- AND YOU ARE DONE!
