Did you know you can make your own sweetened condensed milk… keto style?

I have the perfect recipe that’s simple, affordable, and it’s low-carb! The possibilities are endless for all those keto desserts calling for condensed milk, and your pursuit of deliciously sweet while staying sugar-free baking is about to become epic! 🙌

If you’re wondering, condensed milk is often used in baking such as pies, cheesecakes, fudge, and ice cream. It can also be used for something as simple as a fruit dip or even as a sweetener for your coffee.

Manufacturers take out about 60% of the water from the milk to “condense” it down. After they “condense” the milk, they add about 40% sugar to fill the void from the water. I’m sure you’re asking yourself why the manufacturers did this. Well, they experimented and added sugar to the condensed milk and found out that the shelf life held longer, plus transporting the milk was easier due to not having to store it in cooler temperatures.

Standard canned condensed milk contains 90 calories, 15 carbs, and 15 grams of sugar PER SERVING. This keto recipe has under 1g net carbs and barely any added sugar. It’s a win-win for all of your baking needs!

Tips for making the best keto sweetened condensed coconut milk:

  • Why use canned coconut milk in place of unsweetened almond milk? Coconut milk is thicker, so it doesn’t have to boil as long to thicken. It’s also got a better flavor for this recipe.
  • Got leftover keto sweetened condensed milk? Add it to your coffee or tea! You can store this recipe in the fridge for one week.

  1. Christel

    What all can I make with this?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Christel! Our suggestions include pies, cheesecakes, fudge, ice cream or the fruit dip recipe listed through the link above. You can also use it as a sweetener for your coffee. Hope this helps!

      • Christel

        Thank you! I made some today and used it to make the fudge recipe.

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Oh yum! You’re so welcome! 😋💕

      • Krista

        Could you use regular swerve or another brand granular sugar replacement sweetener? Does it have to be confectioners?

  2. Michelle R

    If using in a recipe, does it measure the same as regular sweetened condensed milk? I’d like to make a crustless keto version of my favorite pie.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! It will measure the same for you!

  3. Amy L

    Can this be used right away in the keto fudge recipe or does it need to be cooled first?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! We did make this recipe the day before using it. Also, we added it at room temperature. If making this the same day, be sure it has cooled a bit. Hoping that helps!

  4. Kathie moore

    Can I substitute allulose for the swerve?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You can definitely try as they are both great keto sugar alternatives!

  5. Penny

    Can this be made in the instant pot?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Penny! That wouldn’t work as you need to whisk occasionally to avoid scorching.

  6. Brittney

    Do you use the liquid in the can of coconut milk as well as the solid part? Or just the solid part?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! You will use the entire can. The solid will liquefy once heated. Hope this helps!

  7. David Y

    I had made keto condensed milk with heavy cream before and used it for my ice coffee. The drink will have a layer of oil floating on top. Will this happen if I use coconut milk?

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi David. We use a frother when adding this to our coffee. This way it distributes better in your coffee without seperating the fat. You can purchase one on Amazon. We use the same one listed here:

      Hope this helps❤

  8. Heather

    What is the size/oz for the can of coconut milk?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Heather! I believe that is 13.5 oz.

  9. Sheila Cassady

    How long will this keep in your fridge after you make it?!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You can store this recipe in the fridge for one week, Sheila Cassady!

  10. Herbert Holland

    Do you think coconut cream would work work ?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes, but you’ll want to dilute it first. For every 2 Tablespoons of coconut cream, you mix 3/4 cup of water to make coconut milk.

  11. Natasha

    My husband and I were craving Thai Iced Tea. We found carb free Thai tea bags on Amazon and we used this recipe on top. All I can say is…Wow!!!!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Sounds delicious, Natasha! 😋

  12. Lori

    Hello, I made this using powdered erythritol and it’s delicious but after a while on the counter the sugar crystallized and it became lumpy. I know I can heat it up to make it smooth again but I want to use it to make chocolate fudge. Will the sugar crystallize again in the fudge?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Erythritol likes to crystalize during the cool-down process. Unfortunately, in this recipe, it will crystallize in the fudge again. Swerve is 70% erythritol and is a better choice. The best way to use erythritol in this recipe is to mix it with another keto sweetener.

  13. dawn bair

    Can I use vegan butter?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      We’re thinking that should work too, however some vegan butters are super processed. It is still worth a try, or you could try coconut oil. Hope this is helpful!

  14. Debbie

    Can leftovers be frozen for future use?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Debbie! It looks like some have done that in a freezer safe container for up to 3 months. Hoping that helps!

  15. neischen

    Can I use whipping cream in place of the coconut milk? Just not a fan of the taste.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      That should work too, however it may end up really thick. We haven’t tried it. Let us know how it turns out for you! ❤️

  16. Leona

    Do you think that I could use this recipe to make homemade yogurt in the instant pot? The easy recipe using Fairlife ultra pasturized milk, sweetened condensed milk, and plain yogurt with cultures?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes, you sure can! Lina makes her yogurt with this homemade keto sweetened condensed coconut milk!❤
