If you need a super easy dairy-free or vegan sweetened condensed milk recipe, I have the perfect one for you! This recipe calls for only 2 ingredients.
Vegan Sweetened Condensed Milk Recipe
Store-bought vegan sweetened condensed milk is hard to come by (I actually have to buy it on Amazon!) Thankfully, it’s pretty simple to make at home!
And you only need 2 ingredients:
- A can of full fat coconut milk
- Organic cane sugar (or your sweetener of choice)
The method is super basic: bring the coconut milk and sugar to a boil, then let simmer for 40-45 minutes (or until the milk has reduced by about half.) It will have a consistency just like traditional sweetened condensed milk once it is cooled to room temperature.
Sweetened condensed milk helps to make a great coffee creamer!
Coconut milk in a carton will not work for this recipe – full-fat canned coconut milk is essential to getting that perfectly sticky sweet texture and consistency. I recommend getting a good quality coconut milk with minimal additives.
I can’t wait to try out recipes like magic cookie bars and pecan pie using this vegan sweetened condensed milk! What recipe are you going to try it in?
