Sweetened Condensed Milk Substitute

This Thanksgiving we will be hosting a dairy-free guest. For this reason, I've been investigating good dairy-free milk substitutes. I've found a decent replacement for sweetened condensed milk so far that seems to have worked in all of my recipes.

For one can of sweetened condensed milk (usually 12 oz) take two cups of almond milk and bring to a simmer in a small saucepan. Depending on your tastebuds, add a teaspoon or so of agave syrup and let reduce until a cup and a half remains. Cool this mixture in the fridge and use as you would use normal sweetened condensed milk.

So far, this has worked in pumpkin pie, and my 7 layer bar recipe.

I am also experimenting with coconut milk and will let you know how that goes!
