spoonful of sweetened condensed milk

No need to seek out canned versions of sweetened condensed coconut milk.  Make this delicious version at home.


1 13.5oz can coconut milk, full fat

3 tbsp coconut sugar


In a small saucepan, add coconut milk and coconut sugar.

Bring to a boil over med-high heat, whisking constantly.

Reduce to low heat, and allow the mixture to reduce and thicken, which will take approx 45 minutes.

Remove from heat, and let cool in the saucepan for 15 minutes.

Transfer to a jar, and use immediately or refrigerate.

Mixture will thicken when refrigerated.  Mixture should be spoonable straight from the fridge, and dissolve easily in cold or hot drinks.


Make sure to use full-fat coconut milk.  You won’t get the luscious texture with reduced fat versions.

Maple syrup, honey or organic cane sugar are delicious substitutes for the coconut sugar.  If using honey, add after coconut milk is fully reduced.

If you’d like to increase sweetness, please feel free to add another 1-2 tbsp of sweetener.
