If you're someone who's on a keto diet and loves the Asian flavours, this recipe is for you! We're going to learn how to make a nutritious and delicious keto Asian style soy milk (dou jiang 豆浆) that will satisfy your taste buds while keeping you in ketosis.


Dou jiang has a distinct flavor that can be described as earthy, slightly sweet, and sometimes nutty. It is enjoyed in both sweet and savory forms. Dou jiang is deeply rooted in Chinese culinary culture and is commonly consumed alongside breakfast items like fried dough sticks (youtiao) or steamed buns (mantou). In contrast, Western soy milk is more commonly used as a substitute for dairy milk in various recipes or enjoyed on its own as a beverage.
