Sweetened Condensed Milk Substitute for Diabetics

Total Time
Prep 5 mins

Being a diabetic is hard. It's difficult to find everyday ingredients. However, if you use some of the "in-a-pinch" recipes and make your own, you can substitute the sugar for Splenda and **HOPE** it turns out right. This did and it's really opened doors for me as a dessert maker.


  1. Stir milk powder into cold water until dissolved.
  2. Microwave 1 minute or until steaming. Stir in sugar and vanilla.
  3. Cover and chill in the refrigerator.

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!
