Sugar Free Homemade Condensed Milk Recipe

Making condensed milk from scratch for our sugar free desserts requires dedication and some time on our hands but doesn’t require any particular skill.

Let’s get the basics straight first. In the US we can buy condensed milk and evaporated milk off the shelf pretty easily. Both are essentially just concentrated Milks that’s 60% of its water content

has been evaporated. The only difference between the two is that condensed milk is sweetened with sugar while evaporated milk is just plain concentrated milk.

In recipes we can use them interchangeably without any problems as their characteristics are the same except that one is sweeter than the other.

So basically when we are making sugar free condensed milk we are really talking about making evaporated milk. Surely we can whack in a couple of spoons of sweeteners if we fancy. Actually, as we are preparing this condensed milk for desserts we added some agave and vanilla in the milk. It’s totally optional but it gives the milk a bit of extra flavor. We may swap that to a different sweetener if we plan for using it in desserts for diabetics.

  • 4 cup / 1000ml Milk (whole)
