Easy Dairy-Free Evaporated Milk Substitute
This recipe makes the equivalent to one 12-ounce can of evaporated milk. You can use it in recipes just as you would the original! See my tips in the post above.
Recipe type: Drink
Cuisine: American
Serves: 1½ cups
  • 3¾ cup unsweetened dairy-free rice milk, soymilk, or nut milk
  1. Pour the milk beverage into a saucepan, and place it over medium-low heat.
  2. Simmer, whisking occasionally, until the milk beverage reduces to 1½ cups, about 30 minutes (see Time Note below). You want it to simmer, and steam, but do not bring it to a boil.
  3. Store the dairy-free evaporated milk substitute in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. It can be frozen into cubes if needed later.
Time Note: The time can vary quite a bit, depending on your milk beverage, humidity, stove, pot, etc. I've had it take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.
