While soy milk isn’t an expensive drink and is readily available at all hawker centres in Singapore, it is quite a gratifying experience to make your own soy milk at home as it’s not difficult to do so. Some time ago, the husband was considering to buy this J-brand soy milk maker (because there was so much marketing and promotion going on) which I felt would be a waste of money and space because we didn’t drink soy milk all the time and it also made me wonder why we would need an appliance to make soy milk when we could make use of the regular food processor or blender that we already had. And that was how I started making my own soy milk since then. One plus point of doing so is that it gives us the flexibility to adjust the richness and sweetness of the drink depending on our preferences. And if you have recipes that require unsweetened soy milk, it’s most convenient to make that fresh from scratch too. Enjoy! 🙂
