Servings: Makes approximately 1 cup of Vegan Condensed Milk
- 1 can (13.5 oz) full-fat coconut milk (avoid coconut milk with added thickeners)
- 1/3 cup pure maple syrup or agave nectar (adjust the sweetness to your preference)
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- In a small saucepan, combine the full-fat coconut milk and pure maple syrup (or agave nectar) over medium heat. Stir to mix the ingredients together.
- Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer while stirring occasionally to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the saucepan.
- Reduce the heat to low to maintain a gentle simmer. Let the mixture cook for approximately 30-35 minutes, or until it reduces in volume by about half. This process will thicken the mixture and create a rich and creamy consistency similar to traditional condensed milk.
- During the simmering process, you may notice a film forming on the surface of the mixture. Simply stir it back into the condensed milk as it thickens.
- Once the desired thickness is achieved, remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the pure vanilla extract. The vanilla extract enhances the flavor of the condensed milk and gives it a beautiful aroma.
- Let the Vegan Condensed Milk cool to room temperature before transferring it to an airtight container or jar.
