Keto & Paleo Condensed Milk

|Keto & Paleo Condensed Milk

Making keto & paleo friendly condensed milk is easier than you think. You will only need two ingredients: coconut milk and low-carb sweetener. A batch of condensed milk will keep for up to a week in the fridge, or even longer in the freezer.

I discovered how to make condensed milk when I was working on my new Fat Bomb Cookbook and used this sugar-free ingredient in several recipes, including Chocolate & Orange Truffles and Dulche De Leche Squares. If you like fat bombs, you can preorder my new cookbook on Amazon - it will be out in June! :-)

Ingredients (makes ~ 1 ¾ cups):

Instructions:

  1. Pour the coconut milk in a pot. Bring to a boil over a medium-high heat. |Keto & Paleo Condensed Milk
  2. Once it starts simmering, turn the heat down to low. Reduce the coconut milk to about half of the volume. This will take 40-50 minutes. |Keto & Paleo Condensed Milk
  3. Once reduced, take off the heat and add Erythritol. Although you can add the sweetener in the first step, it's better to add it after you reduce it in case you prefer different level of sweetness. Reducing the coconut milk by itself will make it sweeter and you can add as much sweetener as you like. If you want to achieve a more caramel-like taste, use Sukrin Gold instead of regular Erythritol. |Keto & Paleo Condensed Milk
  4. Pour in jars and let it cool down. |Keto & Paleo Condensed Milk
  5. Seal and refrigerate for up to a week. Alternatively, pour in an ice-cube tray and freeze for up to 3 months. |Keto & Paleo Condensed Milk The milk will be runny at first but will thicken as it chills. To make it runny, simply heat it up. Here is a batch that I made with some thickener (glucomannan powder). This may be useful for making deserts but was too thick to be used as regular condensed milk. |Keto & Paleo Condensed Milk

Martina can we use Stevia as a replacement for the powdered Erythritol or Sukrin Gold. Thank you so much Martina for all the great recipes.

Hi Carrie, I think you can but I haven't tried it and I'm not sure about the amount you should use. It also depends on the stevia sweetener (drops vs powdered). I'd start with a small amount and add more if needed (stevia tends to be slightly bitter).

I want to make the icecream that just uses the sweeten condensed milk, cream and vanilla.   But of course I want it to be sugar free.  Would I be able to replace the sweeten condensed milk with this low carb, sugar free version??

Reply

Yes I think that should work. Make sure it's combined well before putting it in your ice-cream maker (if you are planning to use it). If you want to make a no-churn version, whipping the cream before combining it wth the condensed milk should make it more airy and fluffy (like I did it in this recipe): ketodietapp.com/.../no-churn-vanilla-keto-ice-cream

While reducing the coconut milk, do you have to stir constantly...or at all?

Reply

I do stir it - occasionally - but I don't think it's needed Smile

Reply

Why did you choose to use coconut milk instead of coconut cream? Aroy-D's cream is marvelous!

Reply

I actually used both for this recipe - you can use eitherSmile

Neat! I'm going to make Thai tea with this.

OMG! Martina you are such a genius! I love this recipe! Thank you for sharing! Best Christine

Thank you Christine, I'm glad you like it!! Smile

I have had problems with crystallization using Erythritol, will it re-crystalize once it cools?

Reply

It will get thick because coconut milk is high in fats that solidify in the fridge - that's the main reason it will thicken. If you want to keep it runny, let it soften at room temperature or briefly heat up. With this amount of sweetener, I didn't have any issues with crystallisation.

Hi! Did you ever try the Key Lime Pie?? This FL girl MISSES a good Key Lime pie...what did you use for the crust?

Reply

I share something similar a while ago (Key Lime Poke Cake): ketodietapp.com/.../keto-key-lime-poke-cake
Or you can use this crust and make "regular" key lime pie: ketodietapp.com/.../Sweet-Keto-Pie-Crust

Reply

I would love to try this in key lime pie. If I use surkin gold, will it become solid again in a cold dessert? Last time I made condensed milk the swerve became solid after cooling down. I used a mixture of powdered and granulized not knowing what would happen.
Would it be okay to use a mixture of hwc and coconut milk ?
I have made a lot of Keto desserts but I am missing key lime pie. I've seen the recipes that use cream cheese and that's not what I want.

Reply

Yes, you can use a blend of coconut milk and hwc. It didn't get hard but it did solidify close to a yogurt consistency when refrigerated (mainly caused by the fats in coconut milk).

Reply

If using Sukrin Gold, should it be powdered?  Thanks for the recipes -- my phin and coffee should be here tomorrow!

Reply

I think you could use either. I often use powdered sweeteners but in this case it won't make a difference because the warm liquid will dissolve the sweetner Smile

Reply

This sounds amazing!  Thank you for developing and sharing.  I am just now entering the Keto journey.  I love your site.

Can you use this to make ice cream? I use to make ice cream with sweetened condensed milk, milk, flavors ect. and put it in the ice cream machine. Wondering if this will work too? Any advice?

Reply

Yes, you definitely can! Smile If you use a sweetener in this recipe, you won't have to add any more in the ice-cream. It also depends on your palate - some people don't use any sweeteners.

Reply

That is amazing, I wanted to make flan and was wonderig how if condense milk is an impotatn ingridient, also great for cocunut macaroons! The ideas are enless it a comon stsple in mexican deserts so you have opned a grat door for my home thank you!

Reply

It works in desserts and with coffee. I have to try macaroons - haven't thought of that! I used it to make key lime poke pie - recipe soon Smile

Reply

Question:  what's the difference between condensed and evaporated milk, and can this recipe above be used either way?

Reply

There is a difference and they can be used interchangeably in some (not all) recipes. The difference is that "evaporated" milk doesn't contain sweeteners and is more liquid, while "condensed" milk contains sweeteners and is more gooey. It may work even better if you use brown sugar substitute to add the characteristic caramel taste.
This recipe is somewhere between the two in both consistency and sweetness. I used it to make Vietnamese coffee and key lime poke pie - I'm planning to share these recipes soon.
