Before we dive into the recipe, here’s a pro tips:

  • Use the freshest dry soybeans.
  • Soaking the beans for at least 10 hours makes mixing and milking easier. After soaking, they should double in size or more. The container should be large enough to allow the beans to grow.
  • You can use cheesecloth or muslin to compress the ingredients and separate the liquid.
  • After soaking, remove the outer skin to reduce the bitterness of the beans. This step is optional and depends on how much time you want to spend.
  • Be careful not to spill or dirty the ingredients on the gas stove when boiling.
  • Boiling creates a thin layer on the material. You can split it or use it for cooking.
  • Adjust the concentration of soy milk by adding or removing water.
  • If you want to add flavor or sweetness to your soy milk, you can add sugar, vanilla, or any other flavorings you prefer to achieve your desired taste.
  • Soy milk can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.

8-12 Hour

Soaking Soybeans

Wash the soybeans and then place them in a large water-filled bowl. Let them soak overnight, changing the water at least once. If the beans have absorbed much water, add more if needed. The soybeans should be doubled or more in size the next day. Check if they are soft and easily split with your finger; they may need to soak longer. Finally, discard the water and give the soybeans a thorough rinse.


If you want to peel the beans

Pour the soaked beans into a big bowl and cover them with water.
Hold the beans in your hands and rub them together to loosen the shells. Keep doing this until all the shells are removed.
Put the beans back into the water and stir them with your hands. The husks will float to the top, so remove and discard them, then separate the beans.

1-2 min

Mixing soybeans

Put soaked soybeans in a blender and add 2 or 3 cups of water depending on the consistency of the milk you want to make. Close the lid of the blender and mix for 1 to 2 minutes until the beans are completely mashed.


Place a clean cloth over the bowl


Place the strainer on a clean cloth over the bowl


Pass the mixture once through a filter and once through a cloth to obtain smooth milk.


Then gather the end of the cloth with your hand and press firmly to remove all the liquid


Pour the remaining ingredients back into the soybean flour cloth in the blender and pour some water on it, and after mixing, repeat these steps until all the processed and compressed soybeans are mixed.

10-15 min

The difference between soy milk and other vegetable milk is that you must put it on heat.

Put the pot on the stove with medium heat and let it boil. Remember to give it a good stir. Just be careful, as it might foam and overflow. Once the milk is cooked, go ahead and add some salt, flavorings, and sweeteners. I usually keep the soy milk on the flame until it reaches a temperature of around seventy degrees.

4-5 days

Milk storage

Once the soy milk reaches room temperature, it can be stored in the refrigerator.
