Turn low carb milk into a sugar free condensed milk with this easy recipe. It’s a one for one replacement for canned sweetened condensed milk.
Since this coconut milk beverage is so low in carbs, I’d like to use it more in recipes that call for milk. Therefore, I came up with this low carb sugar free condensed milk recipe. It’s made by simmering the coconut milk to remove some of the water.
To thicken up the liquid, I added a stevia sweetened vanilla whey protein powder along with a little xanthan gum. The result is a low carb substitute for the high sugar condensed milk you find in a can. It’s very similar to the canned stuff, but only has a fraction of the carbs.
A 14 ounce can of regular sweetened condensed milk contains a whopping 220 grams of carbohydrates, all of which are sugar. My low carb version for sugar free sweetened condensed milk has about 7 grams.
I will be experimenting with this low carb substitute in various recipes. I’m hoping to figure out how to use it as the base for a low carb fudge recipe. I’ve already tried it in a low carb fix for white chocolate recipe which I will post soon. The result was fantastic!
I’m thinking some low carb magic bars are in order. Or maybe a Filipino fruit salad with cream cheese. Both of those are recipes I used to make all the time. Now, I can make them with sugar free condensed milk.
What are some of your favorite recipes that call for condensed milk? You can now make them using this low carb ingredient.
UPDATE: The white chocolate coconut bark has been posted. It’s made using this sweetened milk recipe.
