Easy Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk

I know I didn't want to post this up just yet but couldn't help myself as I am super duper excited.

There are a lot of recipes - especially my no bake cheesecakes that require a can of sweetened condensed milk. Not only is that (of course) packed full of sugar it is too sickly sweet for me and tends to give me a sugar headache if I do so thought I would get a recipe for Homemade Sweetened Condensed milk and use Natvia instead of sugar.

There are many floating around but I used a really easy version. 

Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk - Sugar free
1/3 cup water - boiled
1/4 cup Natvia
1 cup skim dry milk powder - sifted
3 Tbs butter

In a small bowl mix all ingredients with an electric mixer or wire whisk. Make sure you add water last. Mix until nice and smooth. Refridgerate until you need to use. Best used on day that you make it. 

If you don't sift your milk powder you may get lumps, like I did. I actually used just under 1/3 cup of Natvia but found it was a little too sweet for my taste so I will reduce the quantity to 1/4 cup next time. 

Enjoy making you sugar free no bake desserts. I can't wait to get started using it. 

Update ****** Troubleshooting: I used this and the sugar wasn't quite dissolved so next time I will dissolve it in the boiled water first and then add the water and sugar mix to the milk powder and butter.

I'd love to try this! Can you taste the natvia? That's my only concern since my partner doesn't care for it all that much.
