There have been so many times over the past few years where I’ve wanted to make a recipe with sweetened condensed milk, but haven’t had a good dairy free and refined sugar free substitute. Regular coconut cream just doesn’t work the same way and I couldn’t think of any other options.

I ventured out to make my own paleo sweetened condensed milk. And it is SO good!! Nice and creamy with a thick, smooth texture. The taste is rich and sweet, but not overly sweet. Perfect for all of your paleo baking needs! I plan on using it to make all sorts of recipes now, from fudge to key lime pie to Thai iced tea. OMG. Thai iced tea. So good. You can also use this sweetened condensed milk as a coffee creamer/sweetener. Seemingly decadent, but really it’s not all that unhealthy!



  • 28 oz (830mL) full fat coconut milk
  • ½ cup coconut sugar*
  • *For low carb and ketogenic, substitute with monk fruit sweetener (see link in text above)


  1. In a medium-sized saucepan, bring coconut milk to a simmer.
  2. Add coconut sugar.
  3. Simmer for about 1.5 hours or until the liquid has reduced by about half. Make sure to stir and scrape the bottom and sides of the pan every few minutes to prevent it from burning.
  4. Pour into a glass jar.
  5. Allow to cool completely.
  6. Store under refrigeration for up to 5 days.
