Dairy-Free Sweetened Condensed Milk

My favorite use for sweetened condensed milk is to make homemade fudge. Making it from scratch is easier than you may think, and you can choose the type of sweetener you'd like, and the milk! I prefer to use our Organic Maple Sugar, and some of our Organic Vanilla Extract. It adds really nice flavor to the recipe!

  1. In a small saucepan, pour the 2 cups of almond milk or other non-dairy milk of choice.
  2. Add in the maple sugar and vanilla extract.
  3. Heat the pot over medium heat, and stir until the sugar fully dissolves into the almond milk.
  4. Allow the milk to come to a bubble, and then turn down to medium-low, and simmer for 40-45 minutes, or until the mixture reduces by half.
  5. Skim off any foam that collects on the top of the condensed milk, and then pour into a mason jar.
  6. Allow the condensed milk to cool to room temperature, then seal with a tight fitting lid, and place in the fridge. Use within a couple days.


Most recipes say to simmer the milk for 30-40 minutes, but I find it takes longer than that. I've also found that using dairy alternative doesn't yield as thick of a condensed milk as regular milk, but it can still be used to make something like fudge.
