Soy milk—My Favorite Recipe •

I have been making my own soy milk for over a year now. After several batches of (almost) undrinkable soy milk, I settled on this recipe. But I wonder...how do others make their soy milk? Do you have a recipe to share here? After soaking the required soybeans overnight, I drain and add 3 tablespoons of rolled oats before processing. When the cycle is complete, I pour the milk through a gold mesh coffee filter.

To two batches of soy milk (which yields 1/2 gallon of milk) I add the following:

1/2 cup sucanat (natural cane sugar)
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla

The end result is smooth, sweet and creamy. Do you make yours differently? Do you add brown rice or nuts? I would love to know!
