Cook Time55 minutes
Course: condiments
Keyword: vegan condensed milk
Servings: 1 cup


  • 1 large pot


  • 2 cups unsweetened soymilk or canned coconut milk see notes for substitutions
  • 1 cup organic cane sugar

Optional, For Flavour


  • Add sugar and soy milk to a medium pot over medium high heat. Stir until all the sugar has dissolved then bring the mixture to a low simmer.
  • Continue to cook the mixture down for roughly 55 minutes, or until the volume has reduced by half. You can always pour out the mixture into a measuring cup to gauge how much it has reduced if you're not sure. Do not increase the heat, cook the mixture low and slow, it will slowly start to thicken and become a little more viscous.
  • Once the volume has reduced by half, transfer it to a sterile mason jar or other airtight container and allow to cool to room temperature. The mixture will thicken as it cools. Once completely cool, cover and store in the refrigerator.


Secrets to Success

    • You can use most plant milk to make homemade vegan condensed milk, but I highly recommend soy milk or full-fat coconut milk. Some plant milks are more watery and thin than others, which will result in a thinner texture in the end result and may also require more sugar to achieve the right level of sweetness. 
    • It's also best to avoid added ingredients in the milk, which is why soy milk and coconut milk are great options. 
    • If you have any food allergies like a coconut allergy or soy allergy, you can definitely use alternative milk like oat milk for this recipe. 
    • You can't cheat this one by cranking the heat, it really needs to be reduced low and slow. Be wary that the ingredients in the plant milk you're using also have the potential to impact the final result of your condensed milk.
      The mixture will thicken more as it cools, but you want to get to something quite syrupy before you allow it to cool. If you're unsure, you can let it cool, then return it to the heat to reduce it further.

Serving Tips

    • Use this delicious condiment in baked goods, ice cream, coffee, tea, fresh fruit, and any other recipes that call for condensed milk. 

Storage Tips

    • Store in an airtight container or glass jar with a lid in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
