INGREDIENTS for Keto Condensed Milk
- 2 Cups Heavy Cream — Heavy cream is the base of any sugar free condensed milk. Heavy cream is low-carb and low sugar. Heavy cream is traditionally found in a lot of coffee creamers which is why sweetened condensed milk goes great in coffee.
- ½ Cup Monk Fruit Sweetener — Monk fruit sweetener can be found at most grocery or whole food stores. It’s a low-carb granulated sweetener and can be substituted for white sugar. If you do choose to substitute for white sugar, do note that this recipe will no longer be keto.
How to Make Keto Condensed Milk
Place ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium/low heat.
Stir until the sweetener has dissolved.
Allow to simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Place in a mason jar, seal it, and chill in the fridge for a few minutes to thicken a bit more or let it cool a bit before use.
Quick Tips for Sugar Free Condensed Milk
This recipe will be thicker
Sugar free keto condensed milk will be thicker than the canned milk when fully chilled. To use it in a less solid-state, simply warm it slowly. You can warm it slowly in the microwave, stove, or let it sit on the counter for a few minutes. When fully chilled, it will be the consistency of cream cheese.
Cooked longer = Thicker
The longer you cook the mixture on the stove, the thicker the outcome will be. If you choose to cook your heavy cream and sweetener for longer than directed, expect a thicker keto sweetened and condensed milk.
Any sweetener will work
