soymilkmaker [May. 23rd, 2004|08:15 am]

Ok. For the longest time I've wanted a soymilkmaker. I drink quite a bit of soymilk, and prefer unsweetened soymilk, which around here runs $1.79/qt.

I drink protein shakes for breakfast, and calculated I could easily drink a gallon of soymilk per week. At the cost of the soymilkmaker, plus soybeans, I figure I start saving money after about 14 weeks.

Has anyone else used one of these? How reliable are they? It seems like a really smart investment, but I hear nothing about it.

I usually check epinions.com in cases like this: http://www.epinions.com/pr-Small_Appliances-SoyaJoy_Soy_Milk_Maker

Don't forget to check ebay, too. Kitchen gadgets are always pretty easy to find there.

I made soymilk at home before there were boxed you could buy. The Farm Cookbook is how I learned. You can grind soybeans by hand with a grinder (soaked and cooked first), or you can use a Champion Juicer or a cuisart. Then you cook the ground beans and add flavoring to make it better. Can be done with some soy flours too, but I haven't tried that more instant method. Homeade soymilk tastes more earthy and is thin, not viscous, and you may not like it as much as store bought. Store soymilk has tasty additives.
