Soy Milk represents a valid alternative to cow's milk for those who are intolerant or suffer from an allergy or simply prefer not eating animal products.
It is a truly good product with no cholesterol, saturated fats, lactose or casein. It provides our organism with essential proteins containing amino-acids.
In addition, as you can rely on your irreplaceable and tireless Thermomix :-) you can obtain a genuine product, according to your personal taste (making it more or less thick), and in a cheap way obviously. Not bad, uh?
Soy Milk is light and easily digested, it is a very good beverage for you and your closest ones who cannot have cow's milk or simply prefer an alternative to it. This milk can be used to prepare puddings, cakes or other dessert and sweet treats. What about experimenting any preparations? Just let me know what you will come up with at the end, I can't wait to hear from you!
Maria Serra from Treviso is the author of this recipe. She wrote: "Having problems in taking cow's milk, I've been looking for an easy and as natural as possible way to make my own soy milk without using preservatives and food colourings. I've read some recipes, made some changes in the ingredients list too, trying to give my soy milk a tasteful flavour. The method can appear to be long but you just have to be patient at your first attempt and then, with practice, everything will be easier".
I suggest you try another delicious lactose-free recipe, the Rice Milk.
You can find many lactose-free recipe on this website such as the Milk-Free Thermomix Custard, the Thermomix Dairy Free Coconut Biscuits, the Sweet Roll Without Milk and the luscious Milk Free Hot Chocolate with Thermomix.
Ingredientsfor 1 and 1/2 litre of soy milk
- 100 g Yellow Soy beans
- 1 and 1/2 Litre Water
- a pinch Fine Salt
- a pinch Coarse Salt
- 10 g Sugar
- Vanillin Sachet (0.5 g) (I prefer using 1 tablespoon of Vanilla Sugar)
How to prepare Thermomix Soy MilkSoak soy beans in tepid water added up with coarse salt for a minimum time of 12 hours.
After that, wash soy beans with abundant tepid water and drain soy beans using a thin screening strainer or a linen cloth. Then put soy beans in TM bowl with half a litre of water and mix. 1 Min. Speed 10.
Open the lip, add another litre of water and cook without measuring cap. 30 Min. 80°C Speed 3.
After this first cooking, filter your soy milk into another bowl. Wash TM bowl and then pour soy milk inside it again straining it a second time.
Add a pinch of fine salt, sugar, vanillin (or vanilla sugar), 250 g of water and cook 10 Min. 100°C Speed 3.
At the end of the cooking, pour hot soy milk in jars/bottles and then put them upside down to create a vacuum and maintain the taste.
Maria Serre's adviceIt's likely that soy milk will have some kind of deposit at the bottom, so when you pour it in a cup or glass, use the food strainer again. Or shake the jar/bottle before pouring it.
My adviceYou can flavour your soy milk by adding cane sugar, vanilla, cocoa or whatever you like.
About expiration date, this soy milk can be preserved in the coolest part of your fridge for 3 or 4 days. However you can check it visibly, as when expired it presents a layer of floating lumps or is too thick. Definitely not attractive!
