This is amazing...just like traditional sweetened condensed milk. My husband has Type II diabetes and I've made it my business to continue to find ways to make him home baked goods that are diabetic friendly. One wall we always hit was when I found recipes requiring sweetened condensed milk...this broke the code! I am now making him his favorite, german chocolate cake, for his birthday. Thank you!

This was a great replacement for the expensive stuff in the store. I used it in iced coffee and brazilian lemonade.

Thank you so much for posting this! Even adding in the Splenda calories and carbs that Recipezaar leaves out, this comes out to about 90 calories per 2 tablespoons and 9 grams of sugar compared to Carnation at 130 calories and 22 grams of sugar-a definite improvement. You can improve the nutrition a little more by replacing the cold water and Splenda granular with simple syrup (made with Splenda of course). Dry Splenda has a lot of carbohydrate fillers, but if you can find the liquid, there are none-it is truly zero calorie. Torani and Davinci both sell it with their flavored syrup products.

WARNING: splenda is NOT calorie-free, it has 96 calories a cup. It also affects carbohydrate and nutrient absorption and may create stomach problems. I found this out from a diabetic family member who spoke with the doctor. I suggest using Stevia as an alternative to sugar since it is an herb that has been used for centuries by indigenous brazilian people to sweeten

Used this in a rasberry chocolate bar cookie, and it worked well. I had chilled it overnight, and it was rather stiff, but heated it with chocolate while melting, and added a tiny bit of water, and the cookies were a hit!

I used this in your Super Quick Coconut Sticks. I'm not sure how it would work in other recipes, but it worked wonderfully in that one. :) Thanks for posting!
