Description

If you’ve ever tried veganizing a recipe, you may have been stumped on what to use instead of evaporated milk. Using your trusty 1 1/2 quart slow cooker you can make it yourself!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Non-dairy Milk (unsweetened If Possible, It Will Get Sweeter As It Reduces)

Preparation

I used “So Delicious” unsweetened coconut milk (found in the refrigerated section). If you use a thinner milk, such as rice milk, it may take more time before it cooks down enough.

Use a 1 – 2 quart slow cooker for this one – ( or multiply recipe and use larger one).

You want to reduce the volume by half. If you use a thinner milk to begin with it will take more time. So one way to find out the point where you’ve reduced volume to half is to actually put the milk into a measuring cup about half way through the process.

After 4 hours on high I poured mine in the measuring cup to check and it had reduced to 1 1/2 cups, after 2 more hours it was a little over 1 cup. Being coconut milk the solids were perfect.

I haven’t tested this with any other milk yet, so please let me know if you do. Now go out and veganize some of your childhood favorites, and let me know how it goes!

My son is allergic to dairy, so there are lots of times that I have to make substitutions. Thanks for this great idea. I can’t wait to try it!

What a great idea! I’ve often passed on trying to veganize recipes that used evaporated milk, and I think this could work beautifully!
