A great recipe that's lactose-free, vegan, high-protein dairy-free milk and is low cost.
*Servings 6 Cups
1 cup soybeans
8 cups of filtered water
Start by soaking the soybeans for six hours or overnight. * During this time the soybeans will expand to 2-3x their size.
Once they are soaked you can then optionally peel the beans. This isn't 100% necessary, although it will help to blend smoother homemade soy milk and only adds a couple of extra minutes of prep time to the recipe. After soaking the beans, the skins will come off very easily.
Next, add the soaked beans into the Nutramilk processor for just 10-15 seconds to break down the seeds slightly.
Add the water and blend again until smooth and creamy.
You then do an initial strain into a large pot. This will reduce the risk of any of the beans burning to the bottom of the pot while you heat it. However, I simply transfer the entire mixture into the pot and bring it to a boil over medium heat, stirring often.
When the mixture starts boiling, continue to cook for 3-4 minutes. While boiling, remove the foam that starts floating on top. You want to try and skim as much of this foam as you can.
Reduce the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally to make sure nothing is sticking to the bottom of the pan.
Turn the heat off and leave to cool down for a few minutes. Then pour the milky liquid in a bowl thorough a nut milk bag.
Squeeze or press down the nut milk bag so all the liquid drains into the bowl. This can then be transferred to a bottle. Store your homemade soy milk in the fridge for 3-5 days. If it begins to smell/taste sour then it is past its best.
You can also freeze soy milk for 3-6 months. However, this can slightly affect the texture of the milk ( although not the nutrition).
