Condensed milk was a baking staple when I was growing up.
In fact it wasn’t just a baking staple – I would buy a can of condensed milk, poke holes in the tin and suck it straight out of the can.
I literally used to feel as if nothing could be sweet ENOUGH!
But condensed milk came close.
So how cool is it that there’s a vegan version?
Every bit as crazy sweet as the original and can be used as a direct swap in any recipe calling for condensed milk!
And not just ANY vegan version, but a version that is so darn easy to make that it’s done in literally MINUTES.
Maybe you’ve gone looking for a vegan condensed milk in the past and found those recipes where you have to stand over the stove stirring plant milk for hours waiting for it to reduce.
Those recipes have their merits I’m sure, but my favorite thing about this recipe is that it takes barely any time at all.
I used this in my vegan condensed milk fudge recipe and oh my word – that fudge is good!
You’re going to love how easy this is to make, and how absolutely sensationally it turns out.
It’s thick, creamy, sweet to the extreme and tastes just like the condensed milk you remember.

How To Make Vegan Condensed Milk
- Add the soy milk powder and sugar to your blender and blend them dry to mix them together well.
- Pour hot water from the kettle into a measuring jug up to the ½ cup (120ml) line and to the hot water add the coconut oil and salt and add to the blender.
- Blend for a minute or so until well mixed and smooth.
- Pour out immediately into a container or bowl.
- The condensed milk will thicken as it cools.
- Soy milk powder can be replaced with rice milk powder for identical results.
- I tried it with coconut milk powder and the consistency is much thinner. However, it still works perfectly as a 1-1 replacement in recipes that are going to be baked/cooked such as fudge for example. But if you're using it in a no-bake recipe then I wouldn't use coconut milk powder for this.
- Different brands of soy milk powder/rice milk powder etc have different densities. I found this out first hand when trying a new brand of soy milk powder that made this condensed milk extremely thick. If yours turns out super thick and isn't an easily pourable consistency when in the blender, then add a little more hot water. It should be easily pourable when in the blender and firm up in the fridge to the usual condensed milk consistency.
- This recipe makes around 1 and ½ cups (360ml) of condensed milk.
