Have you fed up with pricey store-bought soy milk with additives? Craving fresh soy milk? Right here in this post, I am sharing a Chinese Soy Milk Recipe that’s not just creamy and nutty, but also easy to make.

Soy milk is a staple in Chinese breakfasts and can be prepared as sweet or savory. My favorite is the savory soymilk, which I make with soy sauce, sesame oil, and coriander. It’s that simple and tasty.

The traditional way of making soy milk was a bit complicated and time-consuming. In the old method, we used to blend raw soybeans and then cook the soy milk.

But in this recipe, I’ve switched it up. I cook the soybeans first and then blend them. This change brings out a nuttier flavor in the milk, and the bonus is that you can freeze the extra cooked beans for later use.

You’ll need:

  • 500g dried soybeans
  • 3 L water
  • 5 tbsp sugar or honey

1, Soak the Beans: Wash the dried soybeans and put them in water for 8-10 hours or overnight. The beans will get big.

2, Cook the Beans: Put the beans into a big saucepan with lots of water. Heat it until it starts boiling, then let it simmer for about an hour or until the beans become soft. Keep an eye on it while it cooks, as it can easily bubble over.

3, Blending: Mix the soybeans, water, and sugar in a blender until they’re completely smooth. You’ll want about 1 cup of cooked beans for every 3 cups of water. Save the extra beans by freezing them in small portions for later.

4, Straining: Use a strainer or cloth to separate the milk from any residue.

  • A good blender can easily turn soybeans into a very smooth mixture. If you’re using a high-speed blender, you could consider skipping the straining step.
  • Feel free to customize the water amount according to your preference, whether you prefer a thicker or thinner soy milk consistency.
  • For those who enjoy savory soy milk, think about adding soy sauce and sesame oil after making the soy milk.
