Vegan Sweetened Condensed Milk

Vegan Sweetened Condensed Milk

We needed to make vegan sweetened condensed milk for a recipe we were making and it turned out so well I decided we should share it! This recipe is really simple as it has only two ingredients: coconut milk and organic raw cane sugar. It is always nice to have sweetened condensed milk for baking, so, why shouldn’t vegans have it available as well?


  • 400 ml (almost 14 ounces) of full fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup of organic raw cane sugar

Instructions (makes about 170-180 ml of vegan sweetened condensed milk):

  1. Pour coconut milk into a medium to large pot. Place pot on stove over medium-high heat.
  2. Once the coconut milk begins to simmer, turn heat down to medium. Be careful not to leave the coconut milk unattended over medium-high heat as it will boil over and make a mess!
  3. Add the organic raw cane sugar and whisk until sugar is completely dissolved into the coconut milk.
  4. Allow to simmer for 35-40 minutes to allow excess liquid to evaporate Stir or whisk every few minutes.
  5. Remove from heat, allow milk to cool completely.
  6. Pour into a bowl or a jar and cover. Keep refrigerated until you use it. We use ours right away but it should keep as long as coconut milk keeps (which is about 4 to 5 days).

This recipe yields a creamy and delicious vegan sweetened condensed milk that works perfectly for baking!

  1. Hi there and thanks a mil for this simple, but awesome recipe. It is perfect and tastes fantastic. Now that I have my condensed milk I have a question…. is there any way I can caramelize it… turn it into dulce de leche? Please help….. I need it for a recipe my kids are making in cooking class.

    1. Hello Savannah! You’re welcome for this recipe, we are very happy you like it as much as we do! To answer your question, we have not tried caramelizing it yet. We have a can of coconut milk right now so if we have time to try turning it into dulce de leche soon we will let you know. Hopefully we can get to it before you need it for your recipe! Thanks for the feedback!
