Non- Dairy replacement for sweetened condensed milk

I am looking for a non- dairy replacement for sweetened condensed milk. Any one have one?

  1. Coconut milk with extra sugar? It doesn't have much coconut flavor when it's cooked.

    1. What are you going to use it for?

        Something like Hello Dollies - dessert bars.

      2. Here's a link to a vegan baking site which provides instructions on how to make non-dairy condensed milks (soy, rice, coconut etc): http://www.veganbaking.net/recipes/sa...

        1. This version with canned coconut milk has a very similar texture, really easy but you really do have to pay attention to it

          1. You have to be aware of the different options with canned coconut products. Coconut milk is thin, coconut cream is thicker but not ultra-sweet, canned cream of coconut (e.g. Coco Lopez) is very thick and very sweet - IMO, the closest to sweetened condensed milk.

              Coconut milk is not thin, at Least not In a can . There is the thin part but there is the almost solid part; mixed together the thickness is like heavy cream.

                Compared to sweetened condensed milk. Also, regular coconut milk varies from one brand to another, IME.
