Homemade soymilk (3 ingredients & ready in 30 minutes)

Quick CookWe are proponents of tools and technology. If there’s something that we often make and there’s machine that will help us with the task, we will use it e.g citrus juicer. If you like soymilk, Chinese dessert and soup,  you might enjoy having a soymilk maker.

We have received a soymilk maker from Philips. This machine churns out homemade soymilk in 25 minutes! All you need to do is soak the beans, put all ingredients into the machine, click a button and sieve. That’s it!

You can also make soymilk without the machine. However, it will take quite a bit of manual labour. Check out a tutorial by Noob Cook.

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 25 minutes

Soya bean x 1/2 cup
Water x  3 1/2 cup / about 900 ml
Granulated sugar / brown sugar x 1/3 cup

Note: We use standard cup measurement i.e 1 cup = 250 ml. The cup supplied with the machine measures only half a cup. However, there’s a standard amount of water that you can put into the machine. If you’re not a perfectionist, measuring water is not necessary.


Soybean Milk

  1. Soak soya beans overnight. The beans will soften. From what we’ve seen at the cooking workshop organized by Philips and what is written on the manual, it might be okay if you skip this step. However, soaking the beans will ensure your machine last longer.
  2. Put soaked beans, water and sugar into the machine. Close the lid and press ‘soya’.
  3. The machine will be blending and cooking the beans. By 25 minutes, the soymilk should be ready.
  4. Sieve it. Serve warm or cold.

This machine makes about four cups of soymilk. You can keep it in a bottle and store in a fridge for a few days.

We’ve made it a few times this week and experimented with different amount of water and sugar. This recipe makes a milky glass of soya milk that is not too thick nor thin and with enough sweetness.

Having a glass of fresh soya bean milk in the morning takes healthy living to another notch.

How often do you drink soya milk?

    Hi Sara! I’m so happy to have found your page and dying to go back in Malaysia again with my family soon. Anyway, I just wanna ask, how long will the soya milk last when not consumed. Should it be kept refrigerated? If so,how long will it last? Thanks!

    Hi Zaida! Yes, Malaysia is such a lovely country isn’t it? When I go overseas I always miss nasi lemak and chinese soup. If not consumed, it MUST be kept refrigerated. If kept properly, it should be able to last 4 – 6 days. But I normally finish it the next day. If you intend keep it for long, remember to sterile the container with hot water.

    Absolutely! ;) I’m also grateful to have cool Malaysian friends as well. I’m from the Philippines btw ;) And you’ve mentioned Nasi Lemak.. If I’m not mistaken that’s the rice meal with the rice cooked in coconut milk? Am I right? That’s the first food (meal) I’ve tried when I land in KL and that’s what I also want to ask you on how you do it. Thanks!
