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



Step 1

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

Step 2

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

Step 3

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

Step 4

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)

Step 5

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.
