Soy milk by Mayank in Vapi, Gujarat, India 

I didn't filter it with cloth... I just tried to make it as thin as possible by crushing it in my mixer. I added only three cups of water because I think too much of water will dilute its nutrients.  There are some little minute chunks settling down but I don't mind that. I'm thinking to eat this every morning with my breakfast. (Will add some sugar and Chocolate powder in it for better taste).
