Easy Homemade Condensed Milk

Easy Homemade Condensed Milk

Condensed milk is expensive if you buy it. You can make it inexpensively if you make it yourself. You can even control the fat content if you make it with low fat milk.


Milk (low fat milk)
100 ml
20 g


1. Put the milk and sugar in a pot, and warm over medium heat until it begins to bubble.
2. Bring the heat down to low as soon as the milk starts to boil, and reduce while mixing with a wooden spatula (approximately 15-20 minutes).
3. Reduce it to half, and remove from the heat when you can see the bottom of the pot when you mix. It thickens when it cools, so it's okay if it's a little bit runny.
4. Place the pot which has been removed from the heat into ice water, and cool the mixture as you mix. Then it's complete.

Story Behind this Recipe

Condensed milk is expensive if you buy it, and it gets used up in the blink of an eye, so I decided to make it myself. There is absolutely no difference between using discounted milk that is close to its expiration date and high quality milk, so it's a great deal. I use a 1 L container of milk when making this, and store it in the freezer.
