Keto Condensed Milk
Keto sweetened Condensed Milk is a very easy recipe and such a versatile ingredient that can be used in so many low carb desserts.
If you were anything like me, there was a fair bit of condensed milk consumption as a kid. Straight from the can, or making it into caramel and boiling for 3 hours. Haha!
This low carb condensed milk without sugar is a perfect replacement. To be honest you won’t even know the difference if you use the ingredients listed.
Skip down to the recipe card to see the exact measures of ingredients needed to make your own sugar free sweetened condensed milk.
Keto Condensed Milk is super easy to make at home. It is suitable for a low carb, keto friendly diet. It is both sugar-free and gluten free.
All you need is 3 ingredients
Cream – I use a thickened or heavy whipping cream rather than pure thin cream.
Sweetener – I use xylitol. Allulose will caramelise and turn it into caramel. Other low carb sweeteners will recrystallise e.g. erythritol, monk fruit sweetener.
Butter – I just use regular salted butter.
How to make Sugar Free Condensed Milk
Step 1. Add the cream, butter, and sweetener to a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil then turn down to a simmer.
Step 2. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 40-50 minutes until mixture has begun to thicken. Cool and chill. The condensed milk will continue to thicken with chilling time.
Frequently Asked Questions

I have kept mine up to 1 month in the fridge. In saying that it does depend on the temperature in the fridge and how often your fridge door is open (hello kiddos).
Some say yes, I say just keep it in the fridge. It can separate when taken back out of the freezer. It doesn’t freeze solid which makes it perfect for keto condensed milk ice cream and loads of frozen keto dessert recipes.

Keto Eats Xylitol will thicken more but is still a good option.
PBco 100% xylitol seems to caramelise and crystallise. I am unsure why this is so, but on repeated tests it does not heat the same way other xylitol brands have shown.
A liquid allulose was also tested and made the condensed milk slightly caramel but soft and would still be perfect to use in any recipe that would lend itself to the caramel flavour.
