LC Condensed Milk w/tagatose

I have seen references to condensed milk made with media crema and tagatose...but where is the recipe? I can find many, but not this one. Thanks

I don't have a link or anything, but it's 1/2 cup Tagatose to a can of the Crema.

Heat to a simmer, until it's appropriately thickened, and Tagatose is dissolved.

Cool before using.

It's in the "Got Tagatose" thread. Thanks for the reminder I'm so making some coconut paletas later.

1 1/2 cups coconut milk
1 cup condensed milk
1 handful unsweetened coconut flakes

mix, pour in molds, freeze, yum!

These are very creamy, you can easily adjust this recipe if you want it lighter, but I like them rich

I was playing with the recipe for the condensed milk and ended up with a great salted caramel sauce, but at 187 cals per tablespoon, it's definitely something to think about.
*I say this makes 11 Tablespoons, but it's rough because it depends on how much you reduce it.

Sugar Free Salted Caramel

Ingredients

15 tbsp Media Crema- Table Cream (1 can)
1/2 cup presweet tagatose
2 tbsp Unsalted Butter
1/4 tsp sea salt (or more)

Directions

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, crema and tagatose.
Bring to a simmer and cook until reduced by about 1/3 and darkened to a caramel color (takes about 6-7 minutes).
Don't rush it, use a silicon spatula or wooden spoon to stir often.
Let cool slightly and pour into a small (6x6) buttered pan or a bowl.
Sprinkle coarse sea salt lightly on top and chill.

This doesn't set as hard as a caramel, it's more like a very dense sauce (you can cut it but not pick it up).

This sounds amazing, I will be making this. The caramel sauce I make with water, is good, but I want something nice and thick this sounds right up my alley

BTW how did you come up with the carb count - I get 1.36 per TB. The can I have is 15 for the entire can and everything else is 0 carbs?

dailyplate didn't have the tagatose in the system, so I found the stevia blend that was closest in calories and carbs, but (of course) it includes all the calories and carbs from it in the totals.

If I could figure out how to harden this, slightly, it would make an excellent soft caramel.

Sadly, tagatose is off the list for me.
I've eaten it twice (less than a tablespoon each time) and both times I've gotten severe indigestion, an upset stomach and a massive headache.
I also have this same reaction to xylitol.

May I ask If unsweetened condensed milk from the store would work as a base? Then add tagatos and such. I realize we actually have unsweetened condensed milk in Norway! It's 10 carbs per 100 grams. Not too bad I guess??

Kevinpa had a great recipe for sweetened condensed milk that I have personally used in my no bake pies and cheesecake. Turned out beautifully.

This is the recipe as Kevin wrote it:

"2 cans 7.6 oz Nestle Media Crema
1/4 cup powdered whole eggs
1 splenda quick pack

Whisk to combine."

When I made it, I used liquid sucralose in place of the Splenda quick pack. This amount makes enough to sub for a roughly 15 oz can of sweetened condensed milk. What I like about his recipe is that you could probably use pretty much any sweetener you want.
