Homemade Drinks

The weather has been really hot lately. The haze has made a return and the PSI has been hovering within the moderate to unhealthy range. The forest fires in Indonesia  have caused the pollution and it doesn’t seem to be clearing anytime soon.

To combat the heat I have been making different drinks at home for the kids. They love drinking soya milk and I’ve recently started making our own at home.

I soak the organic soya beans over night before blending them to a fine pulp. After blending  water is added to the mixture and boiled in a pot before it is strained.

It takes roughly an hour for the whole process but it’s well worth the effort as you get soya bean milk which is preservative and chemical free.  You can also adjust the level of sweetness and even have the drink sugar free.

You don’t really need to have a soyabean  milk maker . All that is needed is a blender and a muslin bag and you have all the equipment that you need to make soyabean milk.

Have you made any homemade drinks lately?

    Nothing as adventurous as this! Did try the soy milk once, but it was truly undelicious…though I did suspect perhaps the beans were not of good quality in the first place… YAM xx

  2. Oh yes, homemade drinks are the best. Not to mention you know exactly what they contain and what are you feeding your children.

    Have a great day!

  3. I was making my husband and I smoothies this past summer, which were made out of bananas, pineapples, strawberries a few blueberries and Ice and milk. mmmm
