homemade soy milk

The healthiest soy milk is homemade soy milk!

Soy milk is a popular lactose and dairy free alternative to cow’s milk. It’s plant-based, high in protein, compares nutritionally to cow’s milk and can be used in place of dairy milk in beverages, cooking and baking.

Unfortunately, the majority of soy milk at the super market come from genetically modified (GMO) crops and may also contain other ingredients such as preservatives, sugar, flavouring and fillers, along with added vitamins and minerals to help boost the nutritional value.

Luckily, by making soy milk at home with organic soybeans, you’re able to control exactly what goes into your milk. With the Vibe Blender system, making soy milk is an easy process, using just two ingredients – soybeans and water. Buying soy beans in bulk is also very cost effective.

Soy beans are a legume that can’t be eaten raw, so unlike other homemade plant-based milk methods, soy milk needs to be cooked on the stove-top before consuming.

Homemade soy milk has quite a strong flavour and might taste quite different from the sugar sweetened store-bought variety you are familiar with. You can experiment with the base recipe and include your preferred sweetener to the blender jug. A little bit or honey, maple syrup or a medjool date are delicious, healthy options. Also, for some flavour variations, add cacao or vanilla.

SOAKING SOY BEANS

It’s well known that legumes can cause tummy issues. Soaking the beans overnight, softens the beans but also helps to make the beans more digestible. If you are extra sensitive, adding a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, lemon juice or whey to your beans while they are soaking will help draw out more of the phytic acid content in the beans. Doing this will not affect the flavour of the milk.
