Sweetened Condensed Milk Substitute for Diabetics
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.
- Ready In:
- Stir milk powder into cold water until dissolved.
- Microwave 1 minute or until steaming. Stir in sugar and vanilla.
- Cover and chill in the refrigerator.
MY PRIVATE NOTES

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!Reply
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.Replies 1
