  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup liquid sweetener I used coconut sugar paste (honey or maple syrup works too)


  1. In a small saucepan combine coconut milk and sweetener and bring to a simmer on medium-low.
  2. Keep simmering, while stirring regularly, until the mixture thickens and reduces to about 1 cup. This takes between 30-40 minutes. The sweetened condensed milk will thicken more as it cools.

Recipe Notes

- As the sweetened condensed milk gets thicker, keep reducing the heat and stir more frequently to prevent scorching at the bottom.
- I keep a measuring cup next to the stove to check how much the mixture has reduced. If it's still more than 1 cup, I return it back to the saucepan and continue simmering.
- Other milk alternatives and different natural sweeteners may work as well.
