Soya bean milk is a nutritional milk drink that can be taken in place of dairy milk. Soy milk has replaced the normal dairy products especially for those who are lactose intolerant in several homes.

Basically, soy milk is a plant-based beverage made from soya beans; everything about soya beans is useful.  You get your milk from it, you get tofu (bean curd) as well from it, and the chaff is called “okara”.  It can be mixed with wheat flour, yam flour or any edible flour to make swallow when it has properly dried.

Soya bean milk is rich in fiber, protein, carbohydrate, fats, and loaded with phytonutrients that combat a whole lot of health issues. Those that are Vegans or lactose intolerant can use this milk in place of dairy milk.

How to Make Homemade Soya Bean Milk Recipe


  • 1 cup of soya beans
  • Sugar or Dates,
  • Vanilla Flavor or milk flavor (optional)


  1. First of all, pick the soyabeans by removing discolored beans and any other particles; thereafter, soak it overnight with enough cups of water (above the beans) or for about 8 hours.
  2. Secondly, drain the water the next day and wash off the skin after that you blend it to smooth texture
  3. Thirdly, use a muslin cloth or cheesecloth to strain the milk; then pour it into a clean big pot and boil. Ensure you consistently stir the milk to avoid pouring out when it has reached the boiling point; at this point your delicious thick soy milk is ready.
  4. Finally, allow to cool and add sweetener of your choice and flavor to give it more taste. Some like it sweetened while some prefer it plain. It depends on the category you fall in. { some prefer the milk flavor or dissolve view spoons of powdered milk and pour into the soya milk it’s optional}
  5. The remnant should be poured in nicely clean containers and preserve in the refrigerator for at least 2 to 5 days. Please do not take it when it has gone sour- it should be discarded once you notice that. This can only occur when you don’t put it in the fridge immediately.

This powerhouse milk is a blessing to those who are health conscious and wants to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
