An easy sugar-free condensed milk recipe to enjoy low carb and keto desserts. Keep a jar of this in the fridge for all your dessert needs.
I have a few non keto recipes that require condensed milk, so I reached for my cream and saucepan and make a low carb, sugar free version. I can now enjoy low carb versions of a few family favourites. Condensed milk is often used in no-churn ice cream, fudge, cheesecakes and a few creamy drinks.
This is similar to my caramel sauce but with that recipe I heat the butter until it is as brown as I dare before I add the cream. You can try making this condensed milk with a thickening such as xanthan gum if you dont' t have the patience of watching this for 30 minutes. You need to keep an eye on this as it may boil over and an occasional stir helps.
I’ve been using a couple of spoons of this in my ice coffee and a jar of this now makes a monthly appearance in our fridge. Especially as it firms up in the fridge making it a delicious low carb sweet treat to dip a spoon into when the late night snack attacks kick in! This can also be made dairy free by using coconut milk.
The entire recipes makes 280ml of sugar-free condensed milk although the final size will depend on how much the liquid is reduced whilst cooking.
I’ve estimated that the full recipe will make 19 serves of 1 tablespoon.
How to Store
This sauce is best stored in a sealed glass jar in the fridge. It will thicken up further once chilled. If you find it too thick before using, gently heat it up. It should keep in the fridge for a week to 10 days.
