Home Made Soy Milk

Home Made Soy Milk

Ever since I bought the Joyoung Soy Milk Maker about 1.5 years ago, I’ve been meaning to write about it. But it kind of got back logged. 😅 Then forgotten. 


I bought it from Taobao at a fraction of what I would have paid in SG. The only difference is in the plug. Fortunately, I discovered that it can use the same plug as my rice cooker! So voila! Just plug it in!! Less hassle!! 💪🏼

I’ve been using it to make almond milk recipe for the kiddos. Just dump all the ingredients into it. Press a button. Wait for it to beep. Filter. Drink! 

It’s the same thing for the Soy Milk. I bought organic soya beans from cold storage. It doesn’t say non GMO on the packaging though. Just can’t find one that says non GMO. If anyone knows where to find it, let me know. 

Soy Milk Recipe 

  • 1 cup soya beans 
  • 4 cups water
  • 3 pandan leaves (shredded)
  • 8 dates (I use medjool dates)

1. Soak soybeans in 2-3 cups of water overnight.
2. Discard water and rinse soybeans.

3. Remove skins to your best effort. I rub them between my fingers. 

4. Add all ingredients to Joyoung. Press button. Read a book. 😬

5. When the machine beeps, filter it with a sieve or coffee sock. 

6. Add honey or other sweeteners to taste. Or simply drink it straight up! 

I use the pulp to make gluten free crackers!!! 

Tofu Cheesy Fish Cake

Tofu Cheesy Fish Cake

Laundry done. Check.
Dishes done. Check.
Extra fish cakes stored. Check.

Yes! All done. Hub has brought 宝贝 to her grandma’s place. 1.5 hours of reprieve. Time for blogging!!

It’s the time of the week again. Once a week, it’s cooking time for me. This week, it’s Tofu cheesy fish cake, using the air fryer. Sounds really healthy right??

Ingredients (whatever is in the fridge, again…)
Organic tofu (what’s tofu fish cake without tofu?!)
Fish fillet (you can use salmon)
Shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese
Mixed vegetables
Fresh button mushrooms
Flour
Egg
Salt, black pepper, spices (thyme, parsley etc) (I omitted these for 宝贝’s portion and added for mine)

Dice everything and dump them in a bowl and I aga aga all the quantity. It’s always aga aga and minimum washing for me!! Make sure everything is well mixed.

Add flour until the mixture is sticky and you are able to shape them into balls.

My not very shapely balls. 🙂 I used the air fryer baking tray. It’s so small that I could only fry 4 balls at one time. Temperature : 200 degrees Celsius. Time : 10 mins

They turned out to be really crispy and puffed up. 宝贝 loved her non salted version. Everything’s done without oil!!

Check out her happy smile!! It’s actually quite filling. She ate 4 cakes and I ate 6. Her praises have inspired me to start thinking of next week’s menu!! Hmm… What should I cook next week??
