Sweetened Condensed Milk

Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk
Since I have been making my own coffee creamer for a while now, I keep trying to improve my recipe and try different combinations. Meanwhile I found a recipe on my instant dry milk box for sweetened condensed milk! It is easy to make and tastes even better (and is prettier) than the milk in the can!
Here's the recipe:
  • 1 c instant dry milk
  • 2/3 c sugar
  • 1/3 c boiling water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 c softened butter
Put it all in a blender or food processor and blend for 1 minute.  This makes approx. 14 oz., the same as the can. I used some of mine to make another version of coffee creamer and put the rest in the fridge.

For the creamer: I used equal parts warm milk, sweetened condensed milk, a tablespoon of vanilla, then gave it a whirl in my food processor. Store it in the refrigerator.

  1. One less can in my pantry! It seems like I need sweetened condensed milk for some recipes and I hate buying it - I can always taste the can!
    Thank you!
