Many of our favorite recipes call for Condensed Milk as an ingredient. Unfortunately, the store-bought version is not healthy and it is filled with additives and preservatives.
The best part about making your own at home is that you know exactly what you are consuming. You can also reduce the fat content in your recipes substantially.
Homemade is always best. It’s so much more fun knowing that you have whipped it up in your own kitchen too.
