Tuesday's Tip: Make Your Own Amazingly Easy Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk!!

Tuesday, March 26, 2013


If you are like me there are just some items that you don't keep stocked in your pantry, but you find that you do need occasionally.

For me... this is sweetened condensed milk. I don't use it a lot, but when I do have a recipe that calls for it I find myself running to the store just to pick it up!

But that won't happen anymore!!! Because you can make your own with only 3 ingredients!! How awesome is that?!!

What you will need:

:: 1 cup hot water

:: 1 1/2 cups sugar

:: 1 1/2 cups powdered milk

This made a decent amount for me, so if you are looking for a smaller amount I would just cut the recipe in half.

It makes around what you would have with 2 cans.

If you have someone to help you, you could probably stir this all together in a bowl, but you will probably have really tired hands afterward. Laughing

I just put the hot water in my Kitchen Aid (you could use any blender) and I slowly sifted the sugar and powdered milk in.

Once it is completely mixed you can add it to a recipe or store it. I put mine in a used and cleaned Ragu jar.

Next time you need sweetened condensed milk I hope this recipe helps!

Be sure to Pin-it and share with friends!

We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.
