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 )
  • Water


  1. Rinse & soak soya beans in water overnight.
  2. Drain and remove the skins. It comes off easily.
  3. Blend with water 1:3 proportion.
  4. Strain through sieve twice.
  5. Add 1/2 cup water more & let it come to boil. Keep on low heat for 10 mins stirring occasionally.
  6. Skim off any layer that forms.
  7. Let it cool.
  8. Store in bottle & refrigerate. Will stay for 4-5 days.


  1. You can use a muslin cloth or nut milk bag in which case you may only need to strain once.
  2. The residue ‘Okara’ is high in nutrition & can be mixed in rotis or in baking so it’s not wasted.
  3. You can flavour with vanilla or dates.
  4. Use in tea, coffee, smoothies, desserts as you like.
  5. 100g soyabean gives roughly a litre of soymilk.
