How to Make a Sugar Free Condensed Milk
Condensed milk is perhaps the best food that there is…. Every time I open a tin I grab a teaspoon and indulge in a couple of sneaky mouthfuls. So when I tried to make this sugar free condensed milk recipe, I had more than just a few teaspoons!
The only problem with condensed milk is that it is really laden heavily with sugar – which really is what makes it taste so darn good! But this recipe is for a sugar-free version of condensed milk – but it still has a lovely sweet flavour because it uses Stevia.
You can get Baking Stevia from your local supermarket – you find it where all the other sugars are located. I use the Natvia Baking Stevia which looks like this:
You will find the Carnation Evaporated Milk in the same place as the Stevia. It comes in Creamy and Light – make sure you get the creamy version – it makes the end result a lot nicer! The Carnation Evaporated Milk looks like this:
Finally the Guar Gum or Xanthan Gum. You find this in the health food section of the supermarket.

How to Make Sugar Free Condensed Milk:
- Pop the tin of Evaporated milk and the Stevia into a medium-sized saucepan and heat on medium.
- Whisk it continuously until the mixture starts to bubble (this will take 6 - 8 minutes or so).
- Reduce the heat to low and allow the mixture to simmer gently. A milk skin might form on top - this is normal - just scoop it out and dispose of it.
- The mixture will thicken right up, once it is the consistency of condensed milk, stir in the Xanthum Gum or Guar gum, and then pop in the butter.
- Mix until the butter is totally melted into the milk mixture.
- Remove from the heat and refrigerate.
- Use when cold.
