How To MakeUnsweetened Condensed Milk

As I started creating fall Keto Recipes, I realized I was going to need to figure out how to make unsweetened condensed milk.

My best results so far have been using full fat coconut milk. Coconut milk has a slightly sweet flavor in and of itself so the additional sweetener here is optional.

There are keto recipes to follow in the coming weeks that feature this easy-to-make unsweetened condensed milk.

Keep reading for a few ingredient notes!

Instructions
  1. In a small saucepan combine coconut milk and optional Bocha Sweet and bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir occasionally. Reduce the heat so that the mixture is lightly simmering. 

  2. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the milk has reduced to approximately one-third of its original amount. You’ll notice that it’s much thicker when it’s finished. This takes 20-30 minutes.

  3. The mixture will thicken even more as it cools. Allow it to cool and store in an airtight container in the fridge or use immediately in a recipe such as Keto Hot Fudge Sauce!

  4. This makes 4-6 ounces of finished unsweetened condensed milk.

Recipe Notes

If you plan to do a lot of baking, you can make a large batch and store it in the fridge for a few weeks!

The Perfect Dairy Free Unsweetened Condensed Milk


This recipe for unsweetened condensed milk requires only a single ingredient.

Make sure you do NOT grab the “light” version of coconut milk. Follow the links on this page so you know exactly what you're shopping for when you head to your local grocer.

You want to select a canned full fat coconut milk without any added sugar. Read the ingredients to make sure no additional sugar or sweetener has been added.

I have used a few different brands to make this and they all turned out great.

What Substitutions Will Work?


Keto Sweetener Substitutions

If you haven't already tried Bocha Sweet, I highly recommend you do. 

It's a superfood alternative sweetener made from a Japanese pumpkin called the Kabocha pumpkin.

Most alternative sweeteners will work in this recipe. You can use Monk Fruit Sweetener, Xylitol or a blend like Swerve.

I have not tested this recipe using liquid stevia because I'm not confident of the results without the bulk of some kind of granulated sugar substitute.
