Making Your Own Evaporated Milk

Can a person make their own evaporated milk?

Making Your Own Evaporated Milk

I didn't know you could make your own evaporated milk! I tried this in a pumpkin pie and was surprised at how well it worked. The filling was not dry, but moist enough to retain that "just made" taste for several days. I won't be buying commercially canned evaporated milk again when this is so easy and SO inexpensive to make.


To make your own evaporated milk:

2/3 cup skim milk powder and 1 cup water OR 1 cup dry whole milk and 2/3 cup water. Mix well and use as directed in recipe.

2/3 cup evaporated milk = one 5 oz. Can.
1-1/2 cups evaporated milk = one 12 oz. can

I got this on this site : Sweetened Condensed Milk:

Mix together in your blender:

  • 2 1/4 cups milk powder
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
Pour into container and leave till cold and thick, equal to one can eagle brand milk (11/30/2007)

Making Your Own Evaporated Milk

Jamish requested a recipe for EVAPORATED milk which is entirely different than SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK. I found this out the hard way once when I had to serve a dessert for several women. The condensed milk does not have sweetener, the other does. (12/01/2007)
