soy milk makers
I've been looking around at various soymilk makers and wondering if any are worth their intimidating prices, and I have some questions. Most importantly, how does the finishe'd product taste? I like a soymilk that's somewhat thick with a taste that stands alone and doesn't need a lot of sweeteners to mask its flavor. Think along the lines of Silk unsweetened. Does anyone have any suggestions? I don't have a problem spending some money for a good one, I just don't have the money to find out what works by trial and error.
Thanks a lot!
good question-- my husband LOVES his soymilk, but the habit is getting expensive! i have also been contemplating the purchase of a soymilk maker, but want more info. i'd be glad for any input!
How does the soymilk maker work?
I bought a soy milk maker and when I tried it I hated the end result. I tried making soymilk a couple of times with organic soybeans as well as tried making rice milk. Both turned out horribly. The taste was just yuk, it had a weird consistency and a taste that didn't resemble any of the soymilks available for purchase in the stores. I forget the brand of soymilk maker I bought but spent close to $100. It was a total waste for me.
My vitamix came with a recipe for soy milk. I have not gotten up the courage to try it. Someday I will! But for now I just make smoothies, margs and soy creams!
veganannette...A Vitamix is a turbo-powered blender on steroids! It's awesome. I couldn't live without mine.
Cali, I never noticed the soymilk recipe in my book...thanks for mentioning it. Maybe I'll work up the courage to give it a try!
did you add anything to the soymilk? most of the stuff on the market has a LOT of stuff added to change the taste/texture.
Yes, I followed a couple different recipes, none of them tasted right though. They just all tasted funny to me.
i have had mine for over 5 years now and it has paid for itself over and over and over and over again
the BEST investment i EVER made!!!--i LOVE my blender. i know its just an appliance n all but it kicks ass!!!(can i say that here?)
i actually did not know about the recipe for soymilk either haha thanx for the update
ALSO... BAYPUPPY...you mentioned you have a soy milk maker and its the best kind?--please tell me the name brand of it and where you got it--im in british columbia so probly won't be the same places around or anything
but it may be something i would be interested in buying as soymilk is soooooooooooooo stinken expensive and i think, goes way faster than milk EVER did for me when i used to drink it
thanx so much guys, this is a fantabulous site!!!
ummm i tried maken almond milk in the vitamix...left A LOT of foamy stuff behind in the strainer and the 'milk' tasted kinda funny
--i put it in the fridge for the next day...it was already starting to sour, which i found wierd, i used it anyway in my pancake batter--which by the way was wonderful because i haven't had pancakes in a very long time because i can't have flour so i tried spelt flour and it seems to be easier for my tummy to digest :)
soooooooo i guess i gonna check into a soymilk maker(leave it to the professionals hahah)
