Ready In:
1 (14-ounce) can




  • Combine all ingredients in a blender or processor; mix until completey smooth and combined (I use my small 4-cup processor for this).
  • Cool to room temperature (the mixture will thicken even more upon standing).
  • If not using right away transfer to an airtight container, and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
  • *NOTE* this recipe is equivalent of one 14-ounce can and may be prepared and frozen in a covered freezer container for later use, this freezes very well just remove from freezer (the mixture will remain soft) and stir vigorously with a spoon.
  • Use as you would in any recipes calling for sweetened condensed milk.

  1. if Ibdont have milk powder on hand can I use regular milk? If so how much?


  1. I thought I had some condensed milk in the cupboard for a recipe I wanted to make but I didn't and couldn't be bothered going down the shops so used this instead. It worked really well, only the sugar didn't quite dissolve fully, maybe caster sugar would be better than regular sugar. As my recipe was a cake it didn't hinder that in any way so 5 stars for saving me from having to go the the store. Thanks!
  2. I just made it. I replaced the sugar with Splenda. WOW! It was great.
  3. Wonderful recipe. I used Splenda and it worked out great!! I put it in a copycat Wendy's Frosty recipe and it tasted just like a frosty but less sugar! Yum!
  4. So glad I happpened to look this up. It's recipes like this that end up being my favorites. Simple money savers. This stuff tastes great and worked just fine. I won't buy SCM again. Give it a try. The first couple times I checked on it during blending it was still a bit grainy. So I just turned it on and went to fold laundry lol When I came back it was good to go. Thanks for posting!
  5. Wonderful substitution recipe. We thought it was a tad grainy in comparison to the canned kind but easy to make. It does set up very thick-depending on the recipe I would possibly add another couple of teaspoons of boiling water.
