A must for Holiday baking. YES! It’s that time of year! I don’t know how many times I’ve looked at a luscious recipe with adoration, only to discover that it’s main ingredient is sweetened condensed milk. AKKKK, In the weight-loss surgery lifestyle there is no room for so much sugar – or in a diabetics meal-plan, or for those who just don’t want the sugar-coma that comes from eating it! Recipes for homemade are all over and it’s very easy to make it no sugar added. (It will never be sugar free…simply because there is lactose (milk sugar) in the milk powder. But that is fine…those hit our system slowly and shouldn’t cause a problem.). This recipe makes just barely shy of a standard can of the gorgeous stuff…so use it in any recipe calling for the real-deal and you’ll be just fine. This is best if you use it right away because it gets very thick as it sits. You can store it in the fridge and gently reheat to bring to pouring consistency. If it’s still too thick add a tablespoon or so of boiling water. **I use a generic brand (Walmart’s Great Value) of dry milk powder and it always works great. However when I used the Milkman brand (in an orange box) it was way too thick…and got THICKER when I microwaved it to make it thinner!! I found this recipe on Living Thin. I have not tried this recipe, but I'm posting it for safe keeping.
- 1⁄3 cup boiling water, plus 2 tbl
- 4 tablespoons butter, softened
- 3⁄4 cup Splenda granular
- 1 cup nonfat dry milk powder (dry, see note)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- In a small bowl beat with an electric mixer the water, butter, Splenda, milk powder, and vanilla.
FANTASTIC! Very tasty, very easy to make. I used it to make sugar-free fudge for my husband.
