I want a soymilk maker too! I was searching for one online a week ago, and found this to be pretty cheap:<br><br><a href="http://www.naturestapestry.com/soymilkmaker.html" target="_blank">http://www.naturestapestry.com/soymilkmaker.html</a><br><br>
I was also looking at random reviews, and people said they liked it, but I really don't know much about it.<br><br><br><br>
As for cheese...well...there aren't many good ones that I've tried. Tofutti cheese is the best I've had, and it's still pretty gross. *Powder* cheese on the other hand, well I just posted a recipe for Mac & "chreese" in the recipes forum. It's not hard to make yourself, but you can buy it at <a href="http://www.chreese.com" target="_blank">www.chreese.com</a> -- It's good! Haven't tried making anything else with it though, I want to try making some pizza with the mozzarella kind.

Kreeli has a soymilk maker, don't remember what one but there's a topic on it somewhere<br><br>
vegan cheese is hard to come by, most of the cheese substitutes have casein in them, but i think soymage brand and tofutti brand are alright. i have soymage grated parmesan for pasta, it looks smells and tastes like the real thing and is vegan. expensive though

i have been reading reviews of various ones--who knows what i will end up with. reading reviews is good and all but certainly skewed as the company certainly will not put a bad review up!! i totally hate how many soy cheeses have casein in them! it is my latest pet peeve!!

The prices the site you gave are reasonable for the soyajoy unit. I paid $125 for mine from <a href="http:" target="_blank">www.soymilkmaker.com,</a> but I got free shipping (so - that price could be less...I'm not sure).<br><br><br><br>
The soyajoy is a good machine, but a machine isn't required to make Soymilk. The machine just makes it A LOT EASIER, less messy, and less chance for mistakes (particularly with temperature).

i *had* the soyajoy, and it really is a great machine. however, i really didn't like the taste of "fresh" soymilk...i used laura soybeans (suppossedly the "best") and experimented with many different flavor combinations, but i guess i'm partial to the stuff in the cartons (esp silk!). so, i ended up selling mine on ebay. i have to say though, it is sooo much cheaper (and probably healthier) to make your own soymilk, i just don't have the stomach for it.

Well I really want to make ricemilk, that's the "plain" kind that I use in/on everything, like cereal. Rice Dream is sooo good. The only thing I am concerned about...store-bought stuff is always "enriched"...if I make it myself, it won't have calcium and whatnot in it. I can always take more supplements, but...eh.

I have a soyajoya maker and it is different tasting then Silk of course because it doesn't come out sweetened. But I've found that if you add some sweetner to it, depending on what you like it can taste quite nice. But I like the original taste of it. My sister likes it hot and fresh. That's a little bit far for me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"> But it probably is much healthier than store bought kind I'm thinking<br><br><br><br>

Tommy Gun, rice milk is remarkably easy, if a bit messy, to prepare. the only thing about rice milk is that it's really just very starchy water; it doesn't have the same nutritive properties as soy milk.<br><br><br><br>
here's my method:<br><br><br><br>
1 cup still-hot cooked brown rice<br><br>
4 cups pure, hot water<br><br>
1/4 tsp salt<br><br>
2-4 tbsp liquid sweetner (optional)<br><br>
1 tsp real vanilla extract<br><br><br><br>
place the rice and 2 cups of the water in your blender or food processor and blend on high speed for about 5 minutes. while it is still blending, begin to slowly pour the remaining water in. when all the water has been added, add the salt, sweetener and vanilla, and blend for another 5 minutes.<br><br><br><br>
transfer this into a jug or other tall container and let it "settle" over the course of several hours or overnight. all the "sludge" will be on the bottom of the jug. carefully pour the milk off the top into another container and discard or compost the sludge.<br><br><br><br>
i have recipes for nut milk up at <a href="http:" target="_blank">http://www.veganmania.com,</a> too. i love cashew milk!

thanks for the info..I was debating about a soymilk maker too. I've tried the wonderful beans in a large pot recipe and all I ended up with was a huge mess all over the kitchen from the 'bubbles' (more like explosions), lots of soymilk that tasted really questionable and watery (no matter the amount of sweetener added) and some edible veggie patties....I'll try and find that product forum that was mentioned

Cheece: Vegan Rella melted or not.<br><br>
Tofutti only melted.<br><br><br><br>
I've made soymilk at home a few times, without a machine, and it always turns out awful... but if people say that the machine works good.... Here is what may happen if you buy one:<br><br>
A. It'll be a wast of money<br><br>
B. You'll save a ton of money in the long run, and if it's a good machine, only spend a couple of minutes a week actually making soy milk.<br><br><br><br>
Good luck!

Nothing really has the same nutritional value as storebought milks. It may be more expensive but woth the extra good stuff.

Hmm... I'm not sure I agree. Storebought milks are fortified, but you can buy the same things they use to fortify your own 'milk. You can also choose to take a calcium supplement and still enjoy homemade soy milk for its taste and protein content.

You need vitamin D to go w/ the calcium or it won't get absorbed properly.</div>

Most calcium supplements contain vitamin D -- just read the label.

I bought my machine from <a href="http://www.soymilkmaker.com" target="_blank">www.soymilkmaker.com</a> , too. I've had it for almost 3 years. I use it at least once a week (sometimes twice). I've never had to order replacement parts. If you clean the filter basket immediately, it's very easy to clean. It has more than paid for itself. I add a pinch of sweetener and a bit of vanilla to make it taste closer to store bought. And even though you don't *need* to, I strain mine through cheesecloth because I don't like ANY pulpy parts. I think that's the trick to being more like store bought. (IMO)
