Homemade SoyBean Milk

I love soybean juice or milk and I used to buy soybean drink from Asian store.But I realised after drinking the soy milk from the bottle,I was in dizzy state,my head keep spinning.At first I don't believe that the soybean milk make my head dizzy,so I changed to another brand and I have the same result.I suspected it's the preservative in the soy bean milk that make my head acting up.While I was in Malaysia,my mom bought soybean drink from night flea market(pasar malam),and I have no problem drinking soy bean milk from the vendor stall who process their soybean every day without preservative.Now it's confirm my suspicion that the preservative are the problem.When I visited my friend in Brooklyn few weeks ago,I happened to shop in one of the Asian grocery store who sell soybean in loose packet.I bought a 5 pound soybean and decided to make soybean milk myself.Here it's goes...
My soybean drink with palm sugar
I used 2 1/2 pound soybean to make the first batch.First of all I let the soy bean soaked in cool water overnight.Raise the beans again with clean water few times before blended.Add some water with beans for easy grounding .I used a food processor instead of drink blender.Keep repeat blending until all the soybean are grounded fine .
Used a 10 quart sauce pot to cook the blended soy bean.For 2 1/2 pound of soybean I used 8 litter water .Again it's depend on your preference.If you like your soybean drink taste creamy like milk reduce the water when cooking. I dump the grounded pulp in the pot with 8 liter water and cook for 2-3 hours.I know some people like to squeeze the soy milk first before cooking but I prefer my soy milk taste stronger.I add in few pandan(screwpine leave) as flavour enchantment to take away the beany smell of the milk. Keep stirring ,don't let the pulp stay on the bottom too longer.You don't want the burning smell and flavour in your drink. After 2 and plus hours,I prepare a muslin cloth in a sieve basket to hold the hot soybean milk.If you don't have muslin clothe,cheese cloth is OK too as long as the milk is coming out.Place another pot with the sieve basket over muslin cloth and spoon out the hot soy bean milk.Use a big ladle to press the juice out slowly.Remove the pulp or ground soybean from the muslin cloth.Keep repeat the process .When all the grounded soybean are sieve,transfer back the pot on the stove for another 30 minutes boiling.I would like to keep my soybean milk longer in fridge without preservative,so another boiling is good to kill active bacteria.
After sieving and cooking,what I get from the juice is only left 5 liter soybean milk.
I cooked palm sugar or coconut brown sugar in a sauce pot.Add a cup of water,let it simmer until it's become thick.Palm sugar on the side,so I can add sweetness depend on each individual taste.Yooo Woo.!!!..Soybean Milk is ready to serve.A healthy and low cost drink!!. It's easy to make your homemade soybean drink.All you need is food processor ,soybean ,pot and muslin cloth!! .

wow..you cook yr soya milk for so long....I just let it boiled for about 5 mins and then I sieve it in muslin cloth...and sometimes I remove the outer skin of the soaked soya bean to get rid of the smokey flavour from the milk.

I sometimes make some tau foo fah from the milk...too.

My mom make soybean milk by drink blender and it consumed quite a lot of time. I want to get her a soybean maker for coming Mother's day or her birthday. Oh, I will keep grounded pulp of soybean in refrigerator and add a few spoon in my oats for breakfast.

Hey there soya milk lovers! :D
I found this website particular useful for making soy milk at home. It's really not bad :)
http://soyamilkmachine.net/

k basically, it highlights some functions & recommendations of soy milk machines we can use at home ...

Hmm ... what I like about the website is ...
- Feature videos on the functions of the machine, e.g multi-flavour (using many beans!), and multi-functional (making different products)
- Features videos on how to operate the machine (instructions in English / Chinese)
- Features numerous products for me to choose from!
- Provided direct links to buy product

I bought one from the website already, using it every day.
