Sweetened condensed milk cannot be substituted for whole milk. Condensed milk is milk that has been reduced and to which a great deal of sugar has been added. You can, however, substitute evaporated milk for whole milk. Just add the same amount of water as you have evaporated milk; example, 1 cup milk and 1 cup water. Hope this helps.

Stuck in the house due to snow and want to make tapioca pudding using up Eagle Brand condensed milk. Can't believe this is not possible! So will skip adding any sugar, add a cup of water to EB, an egg, bring to a boil, add vanilla, cool and enjoy whatever I get. I feel like a pioneer!

Condensed milk can be substituted for whole milk in recipes:
1 cup whole milk = 1/2 cup condensed milk + 1/2 cup water


As condensed milk is already sweetened, reduce the sugar in your recipe by 6 teaspoons for each change.

You may have sweetened condensed milk mixed up with canned, evaporated milk. You can substitute half evaporated milk with equal amount of water in place of whole milk.


(One cup whole milk equals 1/2 cup evaporated milk plus 1/2 cup water.)
