Why Drink Soy Milk?

Soy milk is a complete protein. Therefore, you can get all of your essential amino acids from soy milk. Then, as the milk of a legume, it is also loaded with vitamins and minerals. So, fresh keto homemade soy milk is almost like taking a dietary supplement.


This homemade soy milk recipe is pure soy milk. It is prepared with yellow soybeans and water only. Therefore, this soy milk recipe can be used to make a vegan keto mayo recipe or even a homemade tofu recipe.

  • Soybeans – Homemade soy milk is prepared with yellow soybeans. You can also use organic yellow soybeans to make an organic soy milk. The beans are soaked for several hours. Then, you will use a blender to blend the soaked soybeans with a portion of the water. Dried yellow soybeans are round. After soaking they will expand and take on a traditional bean shape. The outer skin can also be easily rubbed off the soybeans after soaking. The outer skin of the soybeans can be removed to make the soy milk taste better.
  • Water – You can use clean filtered water or distilled water to make the homemade soy milk. Distilled water is not essential because the water and milk must be boiled for 20 minutes before it is ready to drink or use.
