Default sweetened condensed milk

Does anyone know of a substitute for sweetened condensed milk that is LC friendly. Used to use it as an ingredient in a fav sweet we once made. Just thought I would ask
Thanks

I would use some heavy cream or some coconut cream (refrigerate a can of coconut milk overnight. In the morning, slowly turn it upside down and open the can. Pour off the liquid, then spoon out the cream). You may have to adjust for sweetness with some stevia or other sweetener of your choice since condensed milk is very sweet.

I got to ask because I've seen it several times and just don't seem to get it. Why are we turning the coconut milk over? Does the cream not sink to the bottom?

The coconut cream floats to the top. It's easier to pour off the liquid if you turn the can over.

The link below is to a food blogger, Carolyn. She describes using her own recipe for sweetened condensed milk and provides the recipe under the recipe for the bars you see first. With that said, I personally am not a believer in the way she manipulates her carb counts and she often uses ingredients that I would never, as a diabetic, use. The sweetened condensed milk recipe, for instance, uses whole milk, a no-no in my books.

Use the recipe if you wish but remember to always follow your meter!

OK thanks, thinking about it now I think I've heard old saying about cream comes to the top. That was a real "DUH" moment.

Don't feel bad. If I had to guess, I'd expect coconut cream to be heavier than the water, because it's pretty heavy. But fat floats, and so it does for coconut cream as well.

It would be an experiment, but I would adapt her recipe as follows:

For heavy cream, add 1.5 c of heavy cream and 0.5 c of water (that will probably give the right consistency of 1 c heavy cream plus 1 cup whole milk without the added carbs in the milk)

OR

1 can of coconut milk refrigerated to separate out the cream plus the liquid in the can, too.

I think those would both give you the same consistency, but I am just guessing.

I saw a recipe the other day, but didn't pay attention as I've only used it to make snow ice cream and that is rarely here. And it may have been that one, but Google it? LC sweetened condensed milk?
