Why have dairy when there is so much cruelty involved. Switch to soya or any nut milk. Soy milk is an easily available alternative. Its simple & economical to make at home too.
Here’s how I made it.
- 100 gm Soyabean ( Approx 1 cup )
- Rinse & soak soya beans in water overnight.
- Drain and remove the skins. It comes off easily.
- Blend with water 1:3 proportion.
- Strain through sieve twice.
- Add 1/2 cup water more & let it come to boil. Keep on low heat for 10 mins stirring occasionally.
- Skim off any layer that forms.
- Let it cool.
- Store in bottle & refrigerate. Will stay for 4-5 days.
- You can use a muslin cloth or nut milk bag in which case you may only need to strain once.
- The residue ‘Okara’ is high in nutrition & can be mixed in rotis or in baking so it’s not wasted.
- You can flavour with vanilla or dates.
- Use in tea, coffee, smoothies, desserts as you like.
- 100g soyabean gives roughly a litre of soymilk.
