View Full Version : Nut milk, soy milk question....
05-09-2008, 07:08 PM
Has anyone used SoyQuick or Soybella soy milk maker for making nut milk? I have wanted to get one for some time now but I was just curious if they leave nut pulp (residue) in the milk and if so how noticeable is it? The kids like it pulpless. Which one does everyone perfer? I want to make a purchase soon hopefully. Also what mix of nuts makes the most bland or mild tasting nut milk? I like almonds but I think my kids like something with a little less taste. Thanks everyone.

I have a Soyabella.....I use it a lot...I love how quickly it makes nut milk and how easy the clean up is...and how nice it looks! We make mostly almond milk, but have also made Brazil nut milk......I think the almond it the mildest....not sure though. I add some agave and dash of sea salt. A bit of residue settles sometimes, and it is a little noticeable drinking it plain, but not in smoothies with other things like bananas......most of the pulp though remains in the machine...............

Thanks for the response so far =)
I have a soyabella and it's great. I make nut milks with it, and it does a nice job of removing most of the pulp. A little graininess remains, which I only notice when I drink it plain. In my "cereal" I don't notice it at all. The best part it, it's a snap to clean. I'm going to try to use it to make hemp milk, I bet it'll work just as well!

Dunno about the soy milk maker, but I have found that macadamia/cashew blend milk (1-to-1 ratio) tastes the mildest to me & there isn't any pulp to strain out even if you make it in a regular blender. :D

I use the soyquick and love it! No residue and the pulp then I dehydrate and freeze and use then for "flour". I turn the heating element off. So easy. Easy clean up too.

I was reading about the Soyabella and I get the impression it's like a percolator. Does it heat the milk? I'd like to use it for almond milk, not a hot milk drink.

....the Soyabella doesn't heat the milk...unless the 'Milk" button is pressed....as in for regular soymilk. it has a "Mill" button that just mills the nuts as it blends with water in the carafe. Just keep pressing the mill button several or more times...it is very quick really. :D
