Vegan Sweetened Condensed Milk
Make your own vegan sweetened condensed milk at home using coconut milk!
In a pot on medium heat, bring the coconut milk and the sugar to a boil. Keep a close eye on it so it doesn't boil over.
Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 40-45 minutes (until liquid is reduced by about half.)
Stir or whisk every 5 minutes or so.
Remove from heat and let cool (it will get even thicker as it cools.)
Store in fridge for up to 10 days.
*Light coconut milk or coconut milk in a carton will not work for this recipe.
**Coconut sugar or maple syrup will also work with this recipe in the same amount - the color will be darker, however.
This recipe makes about 3/4 cups of sweetened condensed coconut milk.
