Make Your Own Sweetened Condensed Milk

I try to keep a stocked pantry, but inevitably I start to make a recipe that calls for Sweetened Condensed Milk and I don’t have a can.  Instead of running to the grocery store last minute. I am going to show you how to make your own sweetened condensed milk in a matter of minutes! It is super easy, and you will be so glad to have this recipe on hand.

An added bonus of this one is I can make Dairy Free Sweetened Condensed Milk. My daughter is allergic to milk, so I can make this with Coconut Powder just as easily as I can with powdered milk. Now she can enjoy all the yummy treats that we do! Hope this recipe helps you out when you are in a pinch!

  1. Thanks for sharing another great recipe! I recently started making my own coffee creamer, but realized quickly it isn’t much savings when you are using a $2.25 can of sweetened condensed milk and I wanted dairy free, so this is perfect for me. Thanks again!

  2. Thank you for sharing!! Where do you get powdered coconut milk?!?!

  3. Could you substitute Splenda for the sugar for a sugar-free version?

  4. Hi! Thanks for the recipe. I have a question, did you use instant powder milk or just regular?

  5. It comes out a bit thin…perfect for coffeee
