When I was a little girl, my parents worked super long hours day in day out, like most fellow Hong Kongers…

I’d never see them as they leave for work before I wake up, and come home well after my bedtime. There was a year where they simply couldn’t take care of me, so I stayed with my lovely grandparents.

That was the time I enjoyed many delicious traditional Chiuchow classics like kueh 粿 (rice cakes) or Chiu Chow Grey Mullet (fish) 潮州凍烏頭. Yum

And I’ve always loved helping granny make Fresh Soya Milk with her Stone Mill 石磨!

Instant Pot Soy Milk Experiments

We conducted multiple fresh soya milk experiments over the course of 2 months and have collected the following data and findings.

Conclusion: Test #4 was the optimal result for achieving a strong & amazingly fresh soybean flavor, silky smooth mouthfeel, and strong & aromatic soybean fragrance + delicious aftertaste.

Other Findings From Soy Milk Experiments:

1. Regular Blender vs. Vitamix Blender:

We experimented using regular blenders and Vitamix blenders, both types of blenders worked beautifully for this Soy Milk Recipe.

2. With vs. Without Steamer Basket:

We experimented making Soy Milk directly in the Instant Pot using multiple Instant Pot models (newer and older versions/batches).

Newer batch of Instant Pot is more sensitive with the “Burn” Message, while older batch would result having a light layer of soy stick to the bottom (but it was fairly easy to clean). The final soy milk product was still wonderful.

So, we’re opting to use a Steamer Basket for making Soy Milk in the Instant Pot in order to make it fool-proof across all batches of Instant Pot Pressure Cookers.

3. Types of Steamer Baskets:

After experimented using various types of Steamer Baskets in making Instant Pot Soy Milk, we found it’s important to use one that has smaller holes. This way, the okara will not seep through to the bottom of the inner pot.

For reference, this is the Wide Rim Steamer Basket we liked best for this recipe.

Is there a different in texture or taste in you leave the soy bean skins on?

I just made this recipe with my 3 quart instant pot and the soymilk came out perfectly! Best homemade soymilk I’ve tasted, and better than the batch I made over the stovetop!

(Clean-up was simple even though I didn’t use a steaming basket)
Thank you!5 stars

Whats the biggest batch you can do in one pot? I usually turn my Soy milk into tofu (and the Okara into veggie sausages…).

Have you had any success in tofu making?

Thanks

Do you have a recommendation for the strainer to be used with a 6qt IP? Looking forward to try this.

I’ve made 3 batches within 2 weeks’ time. I love it. I was wondering if there is anything I can do with the leftover soy bean. Anything I can use this to cook with? Can I use tofu out of it? Thanks.5 stars

Thanks for sharing this great recipe. If I wanted to make sweetened soy milk, like they sell at the Asian grocery stores, should I add white granulated sugar? Thanks!

Um…i bought the same strainer you referenced to put inside the pot but it doesn’t fit due to the handles ?

I’d love to learn more about how soy milk is used in your culture — in the US we tend to replace it for dairy milk in cereal, etc. but I imagine that your grandmother had different ways of using fresh soy milk. Could you share more information about this?

The first time I tried this, it came out perfect! But then I tried to double the recipe and after NPR, the soy milk was quite dark instead of milky white and tasted beany/nutty. I’m not sure what went wrong 🙁
I kept the same cook times as the first time. I did however also skip the step of removing skins?5 stars
