This dairy-free sweetened condensed milk is another fun, helpful, shortcut recipe that I created for Growing Naturals. Unfortunately, they discontinued their rice milk powder line. However, you can still buy rice milk powder from Namaste Foods, Essona Organics, and Better Than Milk. Soy milk powder may also work well, and readers have said that dairy-free coconut milk powder works, too.
Yes, it really is instant. Just 5 basic ingredients, 5 minutes, and a blender is all that stands between you and dairy-free sweetened condensed milk.
This luxurious no-cook, dairy-free recipe can be used as a 1:1 replacement for 1 can of sweetened condensed milk in recipes. And with the ingredients that I use, it is a top allergen-free and vegan substitute, too.

Sweetener options: This recipe for dairy-free sweetened condensed milk really does work best with regular or organic white sugar. For a more caramel-like flavor, coconut sugar can be substituted. I do not recommend date sugar (and most likely maple sugar), which yielded a mixture that was way too thick.
- Place the rice milk powder and sugar in your blender.Whiz the ingredients for about 30 seconds, or until powdered.
- Add the water, oil, and salt to your blender and blend for 2 minutes, or until thick and creamy.
