Condensed Milk

Do you know that part on the Winnie the Pooh where he gets stuck in Rabbit's house? Rabbit asks him "Would you like condensed milk or honey with your bread?" Writing this post reminded me of that...hehehe. :)

I recently tried this recipe for homemade sweetened condensed milk and was really skeptical because powdered milk is gross. I used this recipe in a Brazilian Lemonade recipe and couldn't tell a difference whatsoever in the taste. It was amazing. I think I will be making my condensed milk from now on considering how expensive it is at the store! I also love that it makes it so much more likely that I will know how to use my food storage!

You've got to try it for yourself!

* 1/2 C. hot water
* 1 C. sugar
* 1 C. non-instant dry milk powder* or 2 C. instant dry milk powder*
* 1 T. butter


Blend in blender very well. Use in any recipe calling for sweetened condensed milk.

*Must be REAL powdered milk not a milk alternative!

this recipe is from Crystal Godfrey:everydayfoodstorage.net

You can save leftovers in the fridge or freezer...sorry I don't know how much this recipe makes exactly!

  1. WOW, I had no idea you could make your own! Thanks so much for sharing! I'm always scared to use dry milk, so this'll be a great way to get over that =)
