A few of weeks ago I had a hankering for a favourite treat from my childhood. The recipe called for sweetened condensed milk, and while I used to consume it all the time these days it just doesn’t work for me – far too much sugar and made with dairy (which I try to avoid), so I made my own version with just two ingredients – plus it’s dairy-free and doesn’t contain added sugar.
When I was a kid I used to eat condensed milk with bananas as a treat. I would slice up a ripe banana and top it off with a nice helping of condensed milk. I’m not sure where this duo came from but it was delicious! I bet this version of condensed milk and some bananas would make a great banana cream pie. I guess I know what I’ll start testing next. Since this version uses dates it’s not quite as sticky as the store bought. Incidentally, this condensed milk also goes great in coffee.
