Sugarless Sweetened Condensed Milk

Sugarless Sweetened Condensed Milk (THM S, Sugar Free, Low Carb)

Sometimes when you move to a sugarless lifestyle you have to come up with replacements for store bought items like sweetened condensed milk, white flour and other staples, here is my version of Sugarless Sweetened Condensed Milk.

I’m actually going to label this in my Make Ahead Series, because you can make this and keep it on hand for about 2 weeks in the fridge without a problem.

One thing about this recipe that is different from store bought condensed milk is that it uses egg whites, sadly I couldn’t get this mixture to thicken up without them. I tried.

It’s very important that when you put the half and half on to reduce that you use low to moderate heat, or you will scorch the milk solids and it won’t taste very good. You could probably use heavy cream (whipping cream) in place of the half and half but I went with 1/2 and 1/2 for budget reasons.

This recipe can be made dairy free by using any nut milk or even coconut milk in place of the 1/2 and 1/2. The higher the fat content of your ‘milk’ the thicker and creamier this will be.

Disclosure Statement

 

This Sugarless Sweetened Condensed Milk is also a great base for flavored coffee creamers if you are missing those in your Trim Healthy Mama journey.

I personally broke my addiction to flavored creamers and now enjoy my coffee with on plan options such as almond milk and heavy cream.

    I made this, but could not remember why I did. Found a recipe for Magic Cookie Bars and made those, they are in the oven now. While looking for the recipe I wanted to use this for, I came across recipes to make caramel from sweetened condensed milk either on the stove top, or in a crockpot. I think I will try the crockpot version tomorrow with the leftover milk from the cookie bars and see how it turns out. Thank you for the recipe!

        The Magic Cookie Bars were a hit, took them to church and they were gone! The caramel in the crockpot, not so much. Used it as creamer/sweetener for my coffee.

    Would it be possible to substitute almond milk for the half and half? I am looking for a dairy free dessert for my niece.

        Actually, it thickened completely, like custard, after being in the frig. I made another batch (no boiling this time) and it also thickened completely. Maybe I’m cooking it too long? The second time, I added no gluccie or xantha gum (I added that to the first batch and thought that might also be an issue).

          it sounds like it is cooking too long, I normally take it from the heat when it seems like it’s still really loose (the consistency of regular milk, and it thickens as it cools.

        Maybe I’m cooking it too high? about med low. In the first batch the egg whites cooked a bit and had to strain those out. The second batch, I let it cool a bit before adding egg whites. Maybe I can leave out the egg whites?

        Hmmmm…..I’m not much of a cook, so can’t really go by instinct on this one.

          you can leave out the egg whites , you may need to cook a bit longer to get it thicker though.

    How would I use this as the base for a coffee creamer? Sorry…I’m nearly illiterate when it comes to creating things with food products-like it’s brain surgery or something! 🙂

      Just add the flavor extract of your choice, like 1 tsp of caramel, or 1 tsp of vanilla to the recipe 🙂
