Low Carb Sweetened Condensed Milk Made From Table Cream!
 
I had a recipe from my HC days with was a sugar cookie crust, baked until golden brown, then a can of sweetened condensed milk would be poured over it, coconut sprinkled on top of the milk, chocolate chips and optional nuts. Then baked in oven until "set". This is something like Jennifer just posted but without the cream cheese and sour cream in the filling and what gave me the idea to try to de-carb the HC recipe.

I decided to see if I could make the sweetened condensed milk from Table Cream since as I was making the Table Cream Fudge it so reminded me of Sweetened Condensed Milk before the chocolate ingredients are added I thought maybe it would work.

Well, I did it!! It came out amazingly good and tasted just like Sweetened Condensed Milk and also was thick as well.

Here is what I did:

1 can Table Cream (Media Crema)
2/3 cup sweetener (I used Ideal Sweetener)
2 Tb unflavored Whey Protein Powder
1/2 Tb Vanilla Extract

Whisk all together and place over medium heat until thickened. Use in recipe of choice or refrigerate until needed.

That simple AND that good.

Now I'm going to try my old HC recipe and see what happens. Will be sure to report back! :D

You know, Linda, I was musing the same last batch of fudge I made - thinking, this IS condensed milk, just not SWEETENED...I wonder....

Glad you tried it out and can't wait for further reporting! :hugs:

Great minds think alike, Char!!! :hugs: Working on the recipe as we speak, and trying to think of a name for it! :doh:

I use stevia to sweeten my condensed milk substitute for baking. I'm sure you could use anything you generally use as a sweetener--if one is needed.

:laugh: I was talking about the cookie bars I made, not the sweetened condensed cream/milk. But thanks for the title idea, Char! I think we should just call it LC Sweetened Condensed Milk made from Table Cream. ;)

Charski 12-15-2010 03:52 PM

OH! Well then, Magical Cookie Bars made from Artificially Sweetened Condensed Table Cream.

Or, MCBASCTC for short.... :laugh:

Did you drain the crema before making this like you do when making the fudge, or just use the whole can of cream?

Didn't drain it this time, used it as is. I always keep one in the fridge so it was cold.

HTH!

pooticus 12-16-2010 06:56 AM

Thanks Linda! I'm going to make your cookie bars for a party this Saturday. Do you think I can sub out pumpkin seed meal for the almond meal?

jbatchelor 12-16-2010 07:08 AM

I don't know how pumpkin seed meal works in recipes, but I don't see why not. A meal is a meal, right, as long as it holds together to make a solid crust!

Pam 12-16-2010 12:06 PM

To get the same results, is there a sub for the Ideal sweetener?

Ann Lytle 12-16-2010 12:42 PM

Beeb, do you think you might be able to use the thick part off the top of cold coconut milk?.....................Ann

Any sweetener can be used in this. I am thinking of using liquid splenda next time to cut more carbs.

I don't think so since the table cream is thick cream, but I suggest you give it a try and see. Please let us know if you do! :high5:

Thanks, beeb! That's what I was planning to use... or maybe Truvia. Also, thanks so much for coming up with this recipe :hugs:

pooticus 12-17-2010 11:51 AM

Beeb, I have a can of Media Crema here and it's only 7fl oz in the can. How can this come out measuring 2cups of liquid? Does your magic cookie bar recipe only use 1 "can" worth of SCM?

Thanks!

I wonder if I'm supposed to use 2 cans of it to make the 2 cups?

OMG, you are correct! I made an error here. This is only 1 cup as the serving size for this recipe. I'm going to blame it on Holiday brain fog and being up WAY too late for my own good! :stars:

You only need one can, poot and that makes the 1 serving (you use the whole done recipe) that is needed for the magic cookies!

I'm so sorry and hope I didn't mess you up too bad on this recipe! :blush::hugs:

Beeb 12-17-2010 01:29 PM

REVISED TO REFLECT A CORRECTION TO THE SERVING SIZE OF 2 CUPS. The actual serving size is 1 serving or 1 cup.

Just until it is thick like the HC Sweetened Condensed Milk, about 3 to 5 minutes.

rosethorns 12-19-2010 12:07 PM

This is a great recipe.
