Condensed “Milk”

Buying condensed “milk” from the store can be quite tricky when you are dairy-free, which is why I have created this 2 ingredient simple version. The only ingredients that you will need are full fat coconut cream (the entire can) and organic cane sugar. Simply reduce the two together to get an amazing ingredient that you can use for baking, caramel, and other recipes!

Condensed "Milk"

Yields 8 oz


2/3 cup sugar

1 can full fat coconut cream (and liquid)


  1. In a sauce pan, add all ingredients and set to medium-high heat. Stir until sugar dissolves.
  2. Once a summer begins, set your timer for 40-45 minutes and reduce heat to low. Allow to reduce and turn darker in color. 
  3. Transfer liquid to a mason jar or other container to cool. 


Chef’s tip: Make sure not to stir this mixture during the cooking process at all or it will cause crystals to form.
