If you love sweets but stick to a sugar-free diet, you probably know that it’s not easy to find a good substitute for the classic dessert or topping. Sometimes a healthy dish is no different than one that contains sugar, as in the case of plum cake, but more often than not we get a kind of imitation. That’s the kind of imitation I want to talk about in this recipe, using healthy condensed milk as an example.
In fact, we will make a diet sweet sauce, which in appearance and consistency resembles sweetened condensed milk, but in taste the difference is still noticeable.
If you’re on the Dukan diet, then this condensed milk is exactly right for your diet.Fact
To begin with, I would like to say one thing about powdered milk. Sometimes it is fried before cooking, so that the result is boiled condensed milk. But to be honest, I haven’t noticed much difference in taste. So if you do not need to achieve a dark caramel color of the cooked condensed milk, skip this step. In a bowl or saucepan mix skim milk powder (40 g), cornstarch (10 g) and stevia (1 tsp).
I recommend using corn starch, not potato starch, because it doesn’t add a specific flavor to condensed milk. I use pure stevia without sweeteners. If you are adding a sweetener that has a 1:1 ratio of sweetness to sugar, then you need several times as much.
Mix the dry ingredients well and begin to add milk, while actively stirring the contents with a fork or whisk to prevent the formation of lumps.
Now put the container on low heat and cook for 5 minutes. At the same time, stir periodically.
Next, whip the hot condensed milk with a blender or mixer. This way we achieve maximum homogeneity.
Of course, you can only stir by hand, but then it will be harder to get rid of lumps. At the very end we let the condensed milk cool down completely. The result is fully dietetic condensed milk. It is more low-carb compared to the original version, but just as sweet.
It tastes a little creamy, but you can’t take away the taste of powdered milk. The consistency is average between regular condensed milk and cooked condensed milk. This cream is good for diet cakes and pastries. I sometimes make it with healthy syrniki or pancakes. And the last time I tried it with diet cherry muffins, it turned out fantastic.
Bon appetit! Don’t starve 😋
