Did you know soy is a nutrient-dense source of protein? It is!
½ cup dried soybeans
💦 4 cups water
🌼 ½ tsp vanilla (optional)
🌴 2 dates (optional)
First, soak the dried soybeans in water for at least 6-8 hours or overnight.
Second, drain and wash the soybeans. You can remove the outer skins which is optional, but your milk will have a better texture if you do.
Third, add the soaked soybeans and 4 cups of water to a blender with the optional vanilla or date and blend until smooth. Strain using a nut milk bag.
Lastly, cook the soy milk over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for about 20 minutes. This is an important step since, as a legume, soy can't be consumed raw. Then let it cool completely and transfer to a glass milk bottle. It will keep in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.
