Easily make my Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk recipe and use it to create ice cream, cookies & more!




Pour water in saucepan. Add the powdered milk and sugar into the saucepan or pot Heat it on a low heat until the sugar has dissolved


Once all of the sugar has dissolved bring the mix to a simmer over low/medium heat. Do not stir once the mix starts to simmer otherwise it can crack and crystalize


Gently simmer for roughly 35-40 minutes, or until the milk has darkened to an almost grey color and has reduced by half and thickened


After about 15 minutes, you’ll notice that the milk will start to turn dark and thicken – that’s ok and is exactly what’s supposed to happen) You may notice some foam forming on top. Gently scoop it off with a spoon. When ready, remove from the heat and pour into a jar to cool (if there are sugary bits hanging around the rim of your pot don’t stir them into your condensed milk, this can also crackl your mix)


Let the condensed milk cool completely before putting on the airtight lid. Store in a jar in the fridge and it will last for months.
