Is Condensed Milk Keto?

Definitely not. Regular condensed milk contains 165g of net carbs per cup since it’s made with tons of sugar and full-fat milk.

However, you can make homemade low-carb condensed milk that tastes similar to the regular version and can be used in various recipes. This alternative has a sticky, and thick texture. It’s perfectly sweet and creamy, making it an ideal substitute for traditional condensed milk in your favorite recipes.

Additionally, condensed milk, sweetened condensed milk, and coconut condensed milk are not keto-friendly options either.

Ingredients For This Keto Condensed Milk

You will need only three ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry to create this delicious keto condensed milk. Here is everything you will need:

Keto condensed milk ingredients
  • Heavy Cream – this is the main ingredient for this condensed milk, so make sure that you are using a full fat version. Using half-and-half or milk alternatives won’t work as condensed milk requires high-fat content. However, you can make keto condensed coconut milk using full-fat canned coconut milk.
  • Butter – unsalted butter is the best for this recipe; just make sure it is at room temperature to combine well with the heavy cream.
  • Sweetener – make sure that you use powdered sweetener to dissolve more easily into the cream mixture and avoid lumps.

How To Make Keto Sweetened Condensed Milk

After seeing how easy it is to make your condensed milk at home, you’ll want to make it over and over again. Here is everything you have to do:

Tips For Making Keto Condensed Milk

  • Make sure that you are cooking your condensed milk at medium because otherwise, it will burn.
  • I recommended sifting the sweetener to avoid that sandy texture and creating lumps.
  • To avoid burning the heavy cream, whisk or stir it often while cooking.
  • If you think that your condensed milk is too thin, you have to cook it for a longer time.
  • You can add extra sweetener if you want your condensed milk to be sweeter.
  • For a richer taste, you can use a sugar-free brown alternative.

Can I Make Instant Pot Condensed Milk?

Sure, if you want to make condensed milk in a short time, using an instant pot is the best solution.

  1. Use the saute function of your instant pot. Add the heavy cream to the pot and bring to a boil by stirring occasionally.
  2. Boil the heavy cream for ten minutes until it begins to thicken. 
  3. Stir the butter and sweetener. Cook for 20 minutes or until it begins to thicken.
  4. Don’t worry if your condensed milk seems too thin because it will start to thicken as it cools.

    Can you post or email me a recipe for key lime pie, using this sweetened condensed milk, egg yolks and your graham cracker crust. Here is my non keto recipe:
    Beat 4or 5 large egg yolks
    Add in 1/4cup lime juice, mix
    Add 14 ounce can sweetened cond. milk. Mix
    Pour into a graham cracker crust
    Cook at 350° for 12 minutes.
    Thank you, bob

    1. I haven’t created a keto version of the Key Lime Pie using your exact regular recipe, but I’ve got a keto Key Lime Pie recipe that’s even easier to make and just as delicious. For the crust, you can use the keto graham cracker recipe from my blog. However, I’m all about keeping recipes simple and accessible to everyone. This approach means you can easily find the ingredients and enjoy making (and eating!) this delicious dessert without any hassle.
