Soya Milk is a refreshing rich drink. Drink a glass every morning to start your day on a good note. Use it to wash down your meals, when eating snacks: cookies, Nigerian Puff Puff and many more.

It is plant protein (milk from a plant) hence a great alternative to cow milk for those have lactose intolerance.

Ingredients for making Soya Milk

To make soya milk, you need just 4 ingredients:

  • 1 De Rica cup soya beans (650g or 1.4 lbs)
  • 4 litres (1 gallon) cold water
  • 15 dates (dabino, dátil, datte)
  • 1 vanilla pod or 1 cap vanilla flavour

Directions for making Soya Milk

  1. Peel the Soya beans with LACHI Beans Peeler.
  2. Blend the Soya beans.
  3. Strain the blend using a sieve.
  4. Pour the resulting soya milk into a big pot and start cooking on medium heat. Stir it often so it does not stick to the bottom of the pot.
  5. When it is about to boil, scoop out the foam so it does not over-flow.
  6. Add the vanilla pods. Keep stirring and keep cooking for another 5 minutes, stirring all the time.
  7. Turn off the heat and leave to cool down completely.
  8. Then strain again using a chiffon cloth, cheese cloth or lady’s stocking to remove the finest particles.
  9. Pour into a bottle, cover and keep in your fridge. Drink within 2 or 3 days. If you want to keep it for much longer, keep it in the freezer.
