Want to try something new instead of your typical coffee creamer or half and half? Sweetened condensed milk is a great alternative for adding a sweet creaminess to your cup of coffee.

What is sweetened condensed milk?

This very thick food is made from milk that has been condensed by removing the water via heat. Once it’s cooked down, sugar is mixed in to add sweetness and also to help prolong shelf life. It’s different from evaporated milk because it contains added sugar.

Why this recipe works

  • Condensed milk is a great substitute for coffee creamer, heavy cream, or half and half.
  • Budget friendly and cheaper than the drinks at coffee shops.
  • Condensed milk lasts for a long time. An unopened can stays good for up to 2 years.

What you need

Coffee – Brewed hot black coffee. If you are making iced coffee, make sure the black coffee has been chilled.

Condensed Milk – Any brand will work. This can typically be found packaged in a can in the baking aisle.

Recipe tips

  • Use your favorite brewed coffee. I like using a strong black coffee to balance out the sweetness of the condensed milk. This can also be made with instant coffee or decaf coffee.
  • If making iced coffee, make sure to let the brewed coffee come to room temperature and then chill in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • This recipe calls for 1-2 tablespoons of condensed milk. Add more or less to taste.
  • Store leftover sweetened condensed milk in a jar with a lid or another airtight container.
