Healthy Homemade Vegan Sweetened Condensed Milk (+ Video!)
I finally made a successful batch of Healthy Homemade Vegan Sweetened Condensed Milk and could not be more proud! After whipping up a batch and letting it chill in the fridge for a bit, I dipped a spoon in the jar and gave it my first taste test.
My eyes widened completely.
This stuff is divine. Purely DIVINE.
YEARS ago, I promised the vegan readers of this blog that I would, some day, make a Vegan Sweetened Condensed Milk.
And that day has just arrived people.
I wasn’t expecting my original Sweetened Condensed Milk recipe to be so popular, but it quickly rose to being one of the top recipes on this blog. Since that was the case, I knew I needed to make the vegan version ASAP.
This stuff is so sweet and creamy, it’s seriously hard to believe this Vegan Sweetened Condensed Milk is sugar free, low carb, gluten free, paleo, and keto friendly.
It’s as sweet as frosting and as creamy as can be!
Healthy Homemade Vegan Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 2 13.5oz cans Full Fat Coconut Milk
- ½ cup Water
- 2 tsp Vanilla Creme-Flavored Stevia Extract
- 140g (1 cup) Powdered Erythritol
- ⅛ tsp Salt
- In a high speed blender (I used my Vitamix), add all of the ingredients. Blend until completely smooth.
- Store in the fridge in a tightly sealed jar or container. Keeps for ~1 week.
Watch me make the recipe here:
Compared to ¼ cup storebought condensed milk, ¼ cup of this Healthy Homemade Vegan Sweetened Condensed Milk has 180 less calories and a whopping 44g less sugar! You’re saving yourself from nearly ¼ cup of straight up sugar.
That’s insanity. Pure insanity.
While this Vegan Sweetened Condensed Milk isn’t as thick and sticky as it’s dairy counterpart, it’s just as sweet and creamy. You’d never know it’s sugar free, low carb, gluten free, paleo, or keto! I could drink this straight up.
Ah, liquid gold 🙂
With love and good eats,

i wonder if you could sub the Vanilla Rice Milk Powder for 1/2 cup + 1 T powdered rice bran (or just powdered rice, so rice flour) and 1/2 + 1 T cup brown rice protein powder…?
what do you think?
Hmmm I’m not sure if that would work… The brown rice flour might add a gritty or bitter texture. I would just try using the brown rice protein powder alone, but start off by adding one scoop at a time to the blender with the milk as it might thicken faster than the rice milk powder.
Hopefully this works out!
Hey! First of all, I’m stoked about this recipe. Just curious if you updated the recipe because I don’t see any vanilla rice milk powder in the ingredient list 🙂 don’t want to waste all that coconut milk! Thanks x
Yep! This is an updated recipe, so no rice milk powder anymore 🙂
Hope you like the condensed milk Nicole!!
This is great, I’ve been looking for a recipe for vegan condensed milk. I wonder if soy milk powder would work? I kind of hate the taste of it but I would have difficulty finding rice milk powder.
Katy- I’m sure powdered soy milk would work, but if you don’t like the taste then I wouldn’t recommend using it. I get my rice milk powder here:

These Vegan condensed milks look delicious, i relly want to taste them both. 🙂
Wow! I just made this amazing condensed milk and am having good to hold back from eating it all straight from the blender! Thank you for creating this delicious recipe, it is so quick and easy. Also thank you for having the links to purchase the products, makes it so easy to get what I need sent to Australia.
YAY I’m so glad you liked the recipe Alli!! 😀
Thanks for letting me know how the recipe turned out 🙂
Do you think this would work as an equal substitute to sweetened condensed milk when making ice-cream?
I was waiting to respond to your comment because I had that same exact question! I used this condensed milk in a vegan banana ice cream recipe and it worked wonderfully! Just to be sure it didn’t freeze into a brick, though, I added some alcohol to the recipe since alcohol doesn’t freeze. The ice cream needed to thaw on the counter for ~30 minutes and it was perfectly scoopable! 🙂
I used to adore condensed milk, even though I didn’t have it too often–my mother wouldn’t let me! It’s such a guilty pleasure of mine to want some thick milky sweetness drizzled on top of my treats! Anyways, I love that this take is so much healthier! 1/4 cup is a pretty generous amount of topping too!
How long does it keep in the frig? Can I freeze the leftovers?
This will keep for about 1 week in the fridge. I haven’t tried freezing the leftovers because I used it up in time (I’m posting a vegan ice cream recipe soon that uses this condensed milk as an ingredient! I also posted these Chocolate Fudge Truffles that use this condensed milk) 🙂
I’m so excited for this recipe – I can’t wait to use it to make the vegan chocolate truffles!
I did have one question: is there any way I could use regular stevia with a little bit of vanilla extract instead of the vanilla creme flavor?
Absolutely! That would work just fine 🙂
Thank you for the recipe, though I have to ask – for it to be condensed milk, wouldn’t you have to condense it at some point?
It looks like a great sweetened coconut milk, but for it to be a condensed version, you would have to simmer it on the stove to evaporate the water.
This recipe is meant to healthify AND simplify condensed milk… it’s already thick after blending so there’s no need to cook on the stove. Nothing wrong with skipping a step when it works just like normal condensed milk 🙂

This is VERY good, been looking for a recipe like this FOREVER!! Thank you. I use it in my “nice cream” and my “lattes”. It is a keeper! Thank you so much for sharing with us!
Awwww yayayay! Your comment just made my night 🙂
Great idea adding it to nice cream! I haven’t tried that, but now I’m gonna stock up on frozen bananas to give it a go!
What would be a good substitute for erythritol? Could I sub it out entirely?
Not every ingredient can be replaced with baking and recipes. I wouldn’t recommend substituting the erythritol with anything.
Could I use your milk in key lime pie? And where do I buy erithritol?
I actually used this homemade sweetened condensed milk to make my own HEALTHY key lime pie!
I buy erythritol from Amazon (linked in the recipe box), but you can also get it from grocery stores like Target, Whole Foods, HEB, Walmart, etc.
