Ingredients
  1. 1 cup dried soy beans
  2. 1 tbsp granulated sugar, honey, agave nectar, or stevia
  3. 3 1/2 cups water
  4. 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa or Raw cacao
  5. 1/2 tsp salt (optional)
Instructions
  1. Clean whole soy beans and soak for 4-8 hours. (Easy if you do this overnight.)
  2. Steam in medium pot for about 15 minutes.
  3. Using a colander, drain water from beans and let cool.
  4. Beans will have gotten bigger. Measure 1 1/2 cups of cooked beans. Place the beans, sugar, cocoa/cacao and water (and salt, if desired) into the Vitamix container in the order listed and place the lid securely on the container.
  5. Select Variable 1.
  6. Turn machine on and slowly increase to Variable 10, then to High.
  7. Blend for 60-90 seconds until smooth.
  8. OPTIONAL STEP: Using a filtration bag or cheese cloth, strain the mixture to create a smoother texture.
Notes
  1. You might have noticed the ingredient listing of cocoa/cacao. They are actually two different things. Ground cocoa has been roasted and processed for taste, destroying much of the nutrient value in the process. Raw cacao, however, is still in a raw, unprocessed state. It's known as a great source of magnesium, calcium, zinc, iron, copper and potassium. Raw cacao also contains more antioxidant flavonoids than red wine, green tea and blueberries. If you purchase a bag, feel free to include a tablespoon in your smoothies every morning for an extra boost of energy through the day.
