Homemade soy yogurt


We love eating dairy free soy yogurt.

Using the Chufamix , we wanted to experiment how to make soy yogurt from homemade soy milk. We started trying to make yogurt from hazelnut milk , oat milk , nut milk … without success.

Our first victory was with homemade soy milk . The trick is to make a very highly concentrated vegan milk. Therefore, if the traditional recipe of fresh soy milk uses between 80 – 100g of soy beans, to make a yogurt from it, you have to triple the percentage and make a “concentrated” milk using 250 – 300grs of soy beans.

Ingredients to make the concentrated soy milk:

  • 1 liter of water
  • 250 grams of white soy beans
  • flavouring to taste: tablespoon of honey , lemon peel ,a pinch cinnamon, vanilla …(choose your favourite)

Ingredients to make the yogurt:

  • 1 liter of concentrated soy milk
  • 1 organic soy yogurt ( bought from the shop )

Preparation of the concentrated soy milk:

  1. Leave the soybeans soaking in water overnight .
  2. The next day, strain the soaking water from the soy beans and add half a liter of fresh water.
  3. Blend with the mixer .
  4. After blending, heat up one glass of water in a saucepan. When the water is warm, add the mixture of soy beans to it.
  5. Lower the heat and cook everything for about 6 minutes.
  6. Finally, add a glass of water into the chufamix container, add the hot mixture into the filtering glass and beat again. Filter and store milk.

Preparation of the soy yogurt :

  1. Place a spoonful of soy yogurt into 4-6 separate glass pots
  2. Add the warm soy milk to each pot and mix well .
  3. Let it stand for 12 to 24 hours between 30-40ºC (it is important to maintain this temperature to help the yogurt ferment properly) *we will discuss a few options in the following paragraph
  4. After this time, you can cap the yogurts and store them in the fridge. The soy yogurt remains preserved for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
  5. Keep one of your homemade yogurts to use as a fermenter to make more yogurts.

Tips and advice

  • You can substitute soy yogurt for probiotic sachets (one sachet per glass) .
  • If you do not have a yogurt making tool at home you have other options*, for example:
  1. You could heat the oven up to 50ºC, place the yogurt glasses in it an keep them there for at least 12 hours.
  2. Cover the glasses with a wooly cloth and news paper and keep them on the heater.
  • The most important thing is to keep them in a warm ambiance (35ºC) to ferment.

    Can you use a enzymatic water to make soy yogurt. If yes what would be the quantity required ofenzymic water for 1 liter of soy milk?

    Thank you / merci

    This method is a complete waist of soybeans and electricity! It is very dangerous to blend a boiling hot mixture.. and it creates a huge amount of foam that is impossible to skim. So a sieve would be a good addition to the recipe. Also the yoghurt recipe won’t create yoghurt because you missed the step to heat the soymilk.. also the amount are a guessing game.. so not good for first time yoghurt makers.

    We use plain unsweetened soy milk (organic soybeans and water) from a new tetrapack or shelf stable carton (transfer to mason jar with starter yogurt and warm overnight in an instant pot cooker). That way the soy milk is already sterilized. Keeps it simple and fast if you don’t have time to boil, etc.
