(1 Tbsp per serving)
1½ cups (360 mL)canned full-fat coconut milk*
½ cup (100 g)cane sugar
Use this to make
Make your own
- Place a saucepan with a thick bottom** over medium-high heat.
- Add the coconut milk and sugar and bring it to a gentle boil, while stirring occasionally.
- Turn the heat to low, and let the milk very gently simmer for 45 minutes. Be careful to not let it simmer too aggressively. Give it a stir every 5 - 10 minutes. The mixture should reduce in volume by about half in that time.
- The condensed milk is ready when it has slightly thickened but is still pourable. When a spoon is dipped into the mixture, it should leave a thin layer on the spoon when the spoon is lifted out of the saucepan. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly.
- Transfer the condensed coconut milk to a sterilized jar to fully cool off. Transfer to the fridge for at least one hour, it will thicken more in the fridge as it cools***. Enjoy!
- * We recommend using a coconut milk can that has no emulsifier (such as guar gum) in the ingredient list. We've found this results in a condensed milk with a more desirable and homogeneous consistency.
- ** A heavy-bottomed pot is thicker at the base and will absorb and distribute the heat more evenly. It is less prone to areas that heat more quickly, which means there is less chance the condensed milk will burn.
- *** When you take it out of the fridge, you may notice your condensed milk is thinner or thicker than the one pictured. This is normal and may depend on different factors, such as the fat content of the coconut milk you've used, or the intensity at which the mixture was simmering on the stove. If your condensed milk is more thin or thick than pictured, not to worry as it will still be equally delicious!
- The colour of the sweetened condensed milk will vary slightly depending on the colour of your sugar. If using white sugar, then the condensed milk will be a lighter colour. If using a golden raw sugar, the condensed milk will be more yellow in colour. Both are perfectly fine.
- The sweetened condensed coconut milk can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
