Recipe For Condensed Coconut Milk

I thought I was being quite original with making Condensed Coconut Milk, but that is not the case. I have discovered that there are plenty of recipes out there, and you can even buy a tin of this. This is a dairy free alternative to regular condensed milk.

Head straight on to the recipe for Condensed Coconut Milk ♥

I am always up for a challenge. When eating out with a friend recently we went to a vegetarian restaurant. I have been a few times but this was the first time I had dessert. The chef told us she does not use any sugar in her desserts. This was good for me as I could enjoy the cheesecake without having a sugar rush. I mentioned to her that I was going to try and make condensed milk using coconut milk. She was super impressed. I have had the idea for quite some time but I had no rush to try it out. But with my very bold statement I knew I had to get on top of it. Not wanting to waste a tin of coconut milk I decided to use coconut sugar instead of fructose. To say I was pleased with the results is an understatement.

I did not leave it to get as thick as my sucrose free condensed milk. But it was only a matter of minutes. I was getting quite impatient to taste the results. If you are a fan of both coconut milk and condensed milk then this recipe is for you. I will at some stage try it with fructose. As you will see from the recipe, I did not use a full tin of coconut milk. I used the rest in a lamb curry for our dinner. The second reason behind my wanting to make condensed coconut milk was to make a cookie spread. That recipe will follow soon.
