This easy vegan condensed milk is made with only 2 ingredients. A sweet, easy, dairy-free option to add to a variety of warm drinks, iced drinks, baked goods, or on top of your favorite desserts.




To a heavy pot over medium heat add the sugar and the coconut milk.

Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to low. Stir occasionally and keep an eye on the pot, so the sugar doesn’t burn.

Once the heat is reduced to low, you can stir it every 5 minutes for about 30-40 minutes until the liquid is reduced by nearly half.

Do the spatula or spoon test (see above) and remove from heat.

Let it cool completely, transfer it to a glass jar and place it in the fridge to let it thicken for at least a few hours.

Keep in the fridge covered for about 5-7 days.


  • Use only full-fat coconut milk for this recipe.
  • You can keep it in the fridge covered for about 5 days.
  • If foam or clumps form, you can remove that if you wish.
