Sugar Free Sweetened Condensed MilkJump to Recipe
Condensed milk is available all over the world and used in many recipes. But, sugar free is almost impossible to find. As a type one diabetic, I find so much joy in developing recipes that stay true or close enough to the original flavor. That way, I don’t have to skip out on some of my favorite dishes, drinks and desserts. The process of making condensed milk is very easy but does take time. Because, it needs to gently simmer in order to reduce and develop those strong, concentrated milky flavors. I can honestly say, this is better than store bought. My husband was so confused because it tasted so much better than store bought.
To obtain great results, I make sure to use good quality ingredients paired with patience. It’s important we allow enough time for the flavors to develop and the mix to thicken properly. As you multi task, keep an eye on it, stir occasionally, and whatever you do; do not let it boil. Enjoy the process! I hope this recipe brings you happiness and allows you to make that special recipe you crave but needs condensed milk.

12 cups whole milk
2 cups sugar free powder sweetener
- Add milk into a medium non-stick pot. Bring the milk to a gentle simmer over medium heat, don’t let it boil. Turn to medium-low heat and allow the milk to reduce on a gentle simmer for about 50 minutes. Stir occasionally with a spatula (every 5-10 minute) to prevent the bottom from browning and darkening the mix too much.
- During this time the milk will reduced 1/4 of the way, slightly thicken, but will still be runny. Whisk in the sugar until completely dissolved. Continue simmering the mix for about an hour or until it has reduced by half, taken a creamy color, and slightly thickened. If there is foam residue or bits around the sides of the pot, do not stir into the mix.
- When ready, remove immediately from the heat. Strain into a heat proof container and let it cool completely before putting on the airtight lid.
- Close with the lid, label and store in the fridge. It will thicken a lot more after a few hours in the fridge. Will last about 1 month (in the refrigerator.)
