Soya Milk Pudding

The fad is about to died down in Singapore over this Soya Milk Pudding.  Some are nice but others just can’t make it.  I wonder whether these people did their research or "lab test" before they launched their product into the market.  After all, people will tend to compare it with the original.  You only can fool once.

Anyway, as for me, I did try replicating this at home back in early 2012.  At one point in time, I think I done at least 20 trials.  Then I lost track of new and old measurements in my fact sheet that I scribbled on and that soon killed my interest. Talk about being disorganised and also we were getting tired of eating it

Recently, my little one seems to request this dessert whenever we dined out.  I was procrastinating as to whether I really wanted to buy the two packets of soya milk powder till I chanced upon a recipe in a magazine.  

Coincidentally, ieatishootipost also posted a soya milk pudding which after comparing, is the same as Miss Tam Chiak's (posted in Dec 2011). I was really happy, at least I am not going to waste those soya milk powder (which is definitely not cheap to begin with) just to try out one recipe.

So now my poor friends and family will have to bear with me for feeding them this dessert till I used up these two packet of soya milk powder.

Personally, I find the texture a little soft and it is not silky enough.  Taste wise, it lackes the creamy taste from the originator.

Nevertheless, it was still enjoyed by family.


What you need:

60g Unisoy Soya Milk Powder
120g Polleny Soyabean powder
60g Coffee Mate (next time I will increase to 70g)
60g sugar
28g Poon Huat Instant Jelly Powder (next time I will increase to 32g)
1.4l water (400ml and 1 litre)


Method

Put the two soya bean powders in the saucepan and slowly pour in 400ml of water.  Use a whisk to mix until it becomes lumpfree.

Turn on the heat and add the sugar and the remaining water.

As the soya milk heats up, skim the foam off the surface and whisk the mixture to prevent it from burning.

Once steam starts to appear, stir in the Coffee Mate.

Turn off the heat (It should be about 85ºC to 90ºC at this point) and stir in the jelly powder.

Mix well and then pour through a coffee sock or sieve

Pour into dessert bowls
 
Once cooled put into the fridge to chill

It should set in about 1 hour and be nice and cold in about 2 hours.

Notes:

Soybean powder dissolves in cold water while Coffee mate dissolves in hot water.

Don't add all the water at the same time as it will make it difficult to dissolve.   Much easier to add small amount of water first and mixing it into a paste before adding the rest of the water.  (I have no problem combining everything at one go).

Using a coffee sock will ensure that your pudding is silky smooth

You can reduce the sugar to suit your own taste.




Stay tuned for my next recipe using this soya milk powder.  I hope that is nice.

  1. Hi Edith,

    I was delighted to find your "experiments" for this recipe because I just got off the phone with my daughter who was asking me if I knew of any Soy Milk puddings for my grandson. I'm going to send this link to her so she can check it out. My grandson has so many allergies and she is sick right now but she thought maybe she could make them both feel a little better with a nice soy milk pudding.

    Thank you so much for sharing...

    1. Louise, I am not sure whether soy milk powder is avail at your end. If not I think she can work around soy milk to the ratio of instant jelly powder. Speedy recovery to your girl.

    1. Mich, I wasn't too happy with the smoothness. I will try sieve it thru another few rounds to see whether I can eradicate the problem.

  3. Interesting! I admire your drive for perfection. My neighbour made some but was half water, half jelly - so my girl also wanted me to make it ourselves. Let's see how my experiment will turn out.

  9. Hi Edith, I just made the soy pudding using the recipe from this post. The taste is quite similar but texture not too melting smooth. I did strain the soy milk but it is ok, good enough for me. Thanks for sharing and looking forward to your new improved version.
