Homemade Soy Milk
In my early unsuccessful attempts at making tofu, I was consoled by the realization that I had learned to make soy milk. It does require a bit of elbow grease, but otherwise it is very simple.
This fresh, clean homemade soy milk is delicious on its own. But you can add vanilla, almond extract, honey, or sugar. The nice thing is you get to control how much goes in, unlike the sweetened store-bought versions, which also happen to be quite a bit more expensive.
To make tofu from this soy milk, check out the silken tofu recipe. And for a full demonstration on how to make both the soy milk and tofu, see this slideshow.
