Dairy-Free Sweetened Condensed Soymilk


Cans of dairy-free sweetened condensed milk alternatives have begun to pop up in stores. But they’re usually made with coconut, which some might not like, and are quite pricey. They’re also often smaller than the standard 14 ounces. This homemade dairy-free sweetened condensed soymilk is a great alternative that’s easy to make. And since it uses only pantry ingredients and water, you can have the supplies ready at a moments notice!

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
This works well as a vegan substitute for one standard-sized can of sweetened condensed milk in recipes.
Serves: Approximately 14 ounces
  • ¾ cup sugar (see Sugar Note below)
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons soymilk powder (like Better Than or Now Foods)
  1. Put the soymilk powder, sugar, and water in a saucepan and whisk to combine.
  2. Place the pan over medium-high heat and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until thick, stirring often, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Let cool before using in your recipe. It can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
Sugar Note: Plain white sugar or cane sugar yields the most seamless results. If you substitute another type of granulated sweetener, the flavor will be more pronounced and the color will be darker. I haven't tested this with any sugar-free sweeteners - some of those might not work well.
