About the Recipe


1 cup water

2 cups sugar

¼ cup butter or margarine

4 cups instant milk powder (*remember, quality powdered milk is key to it tasting good)


  1. Combine water and sugar in a medium saucepan.

  2. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves.

  3. Pour mixture in a blender.

  4. Add butter or margarine.

  5. Blend on low, gradually adding milk powder.

  6. Blend on medium until smooth.

  7. Makes about 3 ½ cups, enough to replace two 14-oz. cans of sweetened condensed milk.

It is creamy and smooth if you use the instant powdered milk, but you can substitute the non-instant powdered milk it is has a little grainier in texture the first day, but by the second day it has had the chance to totally dissolve and then it is just as good as the stuff out of the can. Believe me, you won’t be able to tell the difference.
