Homemade Organic Soybean Milk Using Joyoung Soymilk Maker

With the help of modern kitchen gadgets, making your own soymilk at home has become a breeze especially if you have a soymilk maker. And if you have being following my recent posts and photos on soymilk making I am sure you have read about my new loot on the Joyoung soymilk maker (九阳豆浆机 ).

In this post, I would be sharing two recipes on Homemade Organic Soymilk using my new loot and it is so easy with just a touch on the button. After which you would get to enjoy a glass of healthy warm soymilk in less than 30 minutes.


HOMEMADE ORGANIC SOYMILK


As you know, there are many benefits from drink soymilk such as it contains high protein, low cholesterol and also helps to prevent high blood pressure. On another end, it also promote blood circulation, antioxidants, anti-aging, eliminating constipation and etc.

These are some brands of the Organic Soybeans that I am using. You can use any brand of soybean despite of whether they are organic or not. Soybeans can be easily found in any local supermarket or grocery stores under the dried beans sections.


(Serves: 4   | Preparation: 6 - 8 hrs soaking  | Cooking: 25 minutes)

Ingredients:
  • 1 Cup (130g) of Organic Soybeans
  • Water
  • 50g Rock Sugar (or more or less to taste)
  • Some Pandan Leave (optional), tie to knot


Method:-
1. Rinse soybeans for a few rounds, soak it in water for about 6 - 8 hours. (I usually soaked it overnight)

2. Add soaked soybean and water (fill water up to 1300ml mark shown in the jar) in Joyoung soymilk maker and select "Soak Bean" mode. But if you prefer a richer and thicker taste, select "Dry Bean" mode even if you are using soaked beans.


3. When the soy milk is ready, the machine will beep and you will see blinking light on the selected mode.

4. Switch off the power. Add in pandan leaves and rock sugar, give it a quick stir and leave the mixture to stand for about 5 minutes.

5. Lastly, give the mixture a few stir to completely dissolve the sugar. Filter out the soy milk and it is ready to serve.

Quick Tip:
~ The minimum amount for making soymilk is using 90g Soybeans with 900ml water in order for the soymilk maker to operate.

~ "Dry Bean" mode gives a much richer texture to the soymilk as compared to the "Soaked Bean" mode.



HOMEMADE ORGANIC BLACK SOYMILK
(using Joyoung Soymilk Maker)


To test out another flavour, I mix 1/2 cup each of soybean and black soybean instead of using 1 whole cup of black soybean which the taste might be slightly stronger and bitter for everyone. And also by adding black soybean is a good way to help reduce weight, whiten skin as well as strength the body.


(Serves: 4   | Preparation: 6 - 8 hrs soaking  | Cooking: 25 minutes)

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 Cup (65g) of Organic Soybeans
  • 1/2 Cup (65g) of Organic Black Soybeans
  • Water
  • 50g Rock Sugar (or more or less to taste)
  • Some Pandan Leave (optional), tie to knot


Method:-
1. Repeat the same procedures as shown for the making the normal soybean milk above.


If you want to try out black soybean milk, perhaps you can start off with 3/4 soybean and 1/4 black soybeans and slowly adjust the taste to your preference.



OKARA
(豆渣)


Soymilk would taste smooth and better when "Okara (豆渣)" is being filtered from it. But do you know instead of throwing them away, you could actually incorporate this rich dietary fiber into your daily cooking or baking. Below are some recipes on using Okara, hope you would find them useful.

  1. I am so motivated to make my own soya milk. Back when I was little, my dad once made this and I remember he strained it using a piece of cloth. I'm looking forwards to more of your soya recipes.

    1. Hi Phong Hong,

      Yup. I also remember when those time when i use blender to blend the soybeans and strained it using muslin cloth. It's so much hard work compared to having a soymilk maker to easy the task.

  2. Hi, I have a joyoung soymilk maker too. Since I came across the Chinese news about them using industrial oil and it's health hazardous, I don't feel quite comfortable using it. Have you come across this news/ report?

    1. Hi Cheryl,

      Yup i have read about it online too. But i guess if the product is able to be sold in Singapore I think it should have passed our Singapore QC of safeness :p

  4. What a fantastic machine. I really want one. I remember having fresh homemade soy milk at a friend's place many years ago (her dad made it the traditional way without a machine though). It was the best soy milk I've ever tasted. I really miss that homemade freshness. Gotta go check out to see if I can get one in the states.

  5. I didn't even know this kind of machine exist. My husband loves soy milk (childhood memory?) and I did not like it growing up (maybe the smell and taste). But I always love okara. My mom makes delicious okara recipe and I can eat it just like a main dish! I'm going to send the link to my husband and see if he's interested in this! Thanks for sharing Ellena!

  10. Hi Ellena

    The machine does not come with a sieve? You have to sieve yourself? If you use normal sieve does the soy milk taste powdery?

    Also is it difficult to wash? Thanks!

    1. Hi Pav,

      The machine itself does not come with an automatic filter but it still taste great even though you have to manually sieve the soymilk. BTW I used a coffee filter sift which could filter it at least 98%. Not really difficult to wash as it includes a easy self-clean feature too!

  11. Hi Ellena,

    I have this machine at home and using it for red/green/soya bean milk. Do you have any ideas that can spice things up for regular boring soya/red/green bean drink? I tried mixing the beans before and it taste more or less the same. What other ingredients would you recommend that I can add to up the flavor?

    Also do you happen to know what is the ingredient to solidify the soya milk to make tau hui?

    Thanks for your help

    1. Hi there,

      Usually I only use it to make normal soymilk or soybean with black beans. But if you also add in oatmeal, sweetcorn, peanuts, black sesame seeds and etc. In order to make it taste good, you have to know the correct proportion for each ingredients or else you can only do it try and error :)

      Btw for making the soy beancurd, you can use jelly powder, gelatine or the traditional "Gypsum powder" for making douhua which can be found in phoon huat

      Hope that help :)
