Homemade Soya Bean Milk

We made soya bean milk 2 days ago. It was our first attempt and I was so surprised to find out that it is EASY PEASY!

We've been wanting to do this since our last 'balik kampung' (during fasting month I think) when my father made this milk. My father has this hobby to blend his own fruit juices especially during Ramadhan. Another reason is I 'feel' it is cleaner and safer to consume anything homemade, no extra sugar, no preservatives, and the most important thing, using clean utensils! (Just imagine the seller out there making soy bean in bulk everyday! Mesti cincai-cincai. Hahaha pandai2 je claim like that)

Since it is so easy, I want to share with you guys how we made it.

We bought ORGANIC soy bean (organic laaaa kononnya extra sihat :P) and it is priced at about RM7 per 500g. Trust me it's worth it! We only use about 100g that night and the outcome = 3 liter!

Soak the beans overnight. We soaked it during the morning because we want to process it at night. However according to my mom, you can even soak it for 2 hours. It may work for normal beans only (I think so) as this organic one mcm susah nak tanggal the skin from the beans, so I think better overnight.

Wash the beans throughly after that until no weird smell and while doing it, try to remove the skin from the beans as much as you can.

Add few cups of water and blend it. I didn't really measure, just adjusting according to the beans.


Then strain it in a big pot. That's the biggest pot we have, courtesy of my mom *nanges*. Oh ya, please use 'kain kasa' as a strainer as it is very fine and suitable to remove the micro pulp.

Milk it!

Reuse the pulp as it still contain a lot of milk. I blend the pulp with water 3 more times.

Until it becomes stiff like this. I wonder if we can use this to make something, like foo chok or beancurd?

Cook your milk with slow fire, stirring it occasionally and don't forget to scoop out the excessive foam. I don't know what the effect if you don't throw it away, but that's what my parent do. Oh ya, don't forget to stash some sugar, depending on your liking. I put about 10 table spoons for 3L, just for a hint of sweetness.


After your milk boiled, turn off the fire and keep on stirring it until you think it's ok to stop. We didn't stir sampai sejuk (tak larat makkk), we stirred for about 30mins or so je I think.

Then it's ready, hot or chill!

We keep it in the fridge and it's been 3 days, the soy milk still good like the first day we made it and spelled TAAASSSSTYYYY.

Give it a try as it is very simple and a healthier choice. Oh yaa, just don't do it during working days..because u have to wait up until it is totally cool before shove it in the fridge. MrComot wait up until 2AM for this *isk isk*

  7. I used to make my own soy been milk. sedap, but make sure to tapis betul betul or else, susu tu cepat basi.

    and i use the sisa sisa soy been tu as a mask. letak tebal tebal kat muka, and then biarkan sekejap for 15 minutes or so.

    rasa macam best pulak tonyoh tonyoh the soft texture of the pulp dengan muka. i dont know if theres any petua out there to lumur the leftover on your face as a beautifying agent. haha but worth a try. :)
