Welcome to keto meals and recipes dot com In creating or converting some classic recipes, there are some important ingredients that seem to be an integral part of the recipe, but don't appear to have an easy keto conversion. One of these ingredients, which I use and I'm going to show you how to make right now, is my sugar-free sweetened condensed milk. I assure you this recipe is very easy to make, but will take a bit of your time. The macronutrient ratio for this sugar-free sweetened condensed milk is seventeen point seven to one, with 1.5 grams of total carbs and 1.5 grams of net carbs, per 20 gram serving. As you can see, this is like a fat bomb all on its own One of the benefits of this very easy recipe is it only has four ingredients and, as I mentioned already, only requires a bit of your time and attention The first order of operation is to set your stovetop heat to medium-low then pour your heavy cream into your pot and at the same time, also add the confectionery sweetener.
Then stir to dissolve the sweetener as the cream is warming up Even though I've made this recipe quite a number of times, it just occurred to me that, since I want the water content of the cream to evaporate, it might be a good idea to transfer this into a frying pan because of the greater surface area So that's what I'm about to do. I guess I could have done this right from the start, but lesson learned Now that I've transferred the liquid, bring the liquid to a light boil in the frying pan Then reduce the heat a bit and continue cooking at a simmer for about 30 minutes I cannot emphasize enough that you must stir frequently while the cream is being reduced and begins to thicken Please note that while you're simmering you may have to control and adjust the heat This is to prevent the cream from scorching on the bottom of the pot.
While cooking this mixture, I had to reduce or turn up the heat several times to keep it at a consistent simmer And that's why it's very important that you stay near the stove as you're making this recipe it may seem a little tedious, but this sugar-free sweetened condensed milk is so very close to the taste of the original Eagle brand sweetened condensed milk, which is the brand we used to use before we went keto, and I think that you will really appreciate the taste once it is done. In fact, my son Chris, who is a real foodie and a carbivore said that he liked my sugar free condensed milk version more so than the Eagle Brand condensed milk, and the reason, he explained, was that my version did not have an overpowering sweetness to it He described my sugar free version as having a sweet taste that leaves a more pleasant and very light vanilla aftertaste It's been almost 30 minutes and, as you can see, the cream and sugar mixture has condensed At this point, the creamy liquid seems very thick and if you dip a spoon into it it will coat the spoon very well And as you run your finger along the back of the spoon, it will stay nice and clean Now the sweetened condensed milk is ready for the next step which is to add the unsalted butter Immediately after adding the butter stir until the butter is well blended into the cream mixture Continue to simmer the liquid at low heat for about 1 to 2 more minutes This will help the butter flavor to better infuse the cream mixture And the last step is to turn off your heat and if you like remove the pot from the heat element Now add the vanilla and stir until the vanilla is well blended and the liquid looks smooth and glossy Then pour the condensed milk into an airtight heatproof container And if you're going to use your sweetened condensed milk the same day Let it rest and cool for at least one hour in order for the flavors to develop better.
Or, if you don't need it right away or don't need all of it, seal your container or refrigerate until you need the sweetened condensed milk some other time I would like to mention that this sweetened condensed milk will thicken up as it cools, especially in the refrigerator. And, also like many other sauces and recipes, if you don't need it right away, and you can let the condensed milk rest overnight, you will notice that the flavor will really develop even more, and really be at its fullest after 24 hours I don't know exactly how long the sweetened condensed milk will keep in your refrigerator But I found that mine lasted very well for about two weeks so, if you're going to be making some for the same day that you're going to be using, it make a double batch, because you'll be able to use it in some other recipe, like some of the ones I'll be posting very soon So please come back to see which recipes I will be incorporating this delicious sugar-free sweetened condensed milk Here's a hint.
One of the recipes will be a no churn, two or three ingredient ice cream So, for now, thank you very much for watching this video and visiting my channel I hope you like this recipe. The link for this printable, sugar-free Sweetened condensed milk will be posted in the youtube description below.
