What Is Evaporated Milk?

Evaporated milk is canned, shelf-stable, highly concentrated (typically 2 percent) milk. It’s often used in recipes like pumpkin pie and tres leches cake. To make the product, about 60 percent of the water is evaporated from cow’s milk, after which the liquid is canned and heat-sterilized. This process makes the milk shelf-stable for months, sometimes even years. Technically, when mixed with 1 ½ parts water, one part evaporated milk can be reconstituted into the proportional equivalent of regular milk.

That automatically nixes a lot of options from both the dairy- and dairy-alternative aisles. Because of this, many are turning to a more allergy-friendly option: flax milk.

Evaporated Milk vs. Condensed Milk

You may think that these two shelf-stable canned milk products are one in the same, but they’re not. Both condensed milk and evaporated milk are types of concentrated milk, but that’s where the similarities end. The main difference between evaporated milk and condensed milk is that the latter has lots of added sugar, making it a naturally (or unnaturally, depending on how you want to look at it) sweet product. That’s why you can easily drizzle a can of condensed milk over magic layer bars or use it for quick-cooking chocolate fudge. There’s very little legwork needed when cooking or baking with condensed milk.

On the other hand, evaporated milk is unsweetened, so you wouldn’t want to substitute one for the other, as it can greatly affect how sweet your recipe will taste.

Five substitutes for evaporated milk

1. Regular Milk

Unsurprisingly, the milk you already have in the fridge will be a fine substitute for evaporated milk—with a bit of tinkering. For the most foolproof evaporated milk substitute, make your own: Into a saucepan, place approximately 60 percent more milk than called for in the recipe, bring it to a boil, and gently reduce it until the desired amount is reached. Cool the mixture, then move on with the recipe.

The 7 Healthiest Milks, According to a Dietitian

  The 7 Healthiest Milks, According to a Dietitian We sort through all the choices to see how the nutrition stacks up. 1. Cow's Milk Cow's milk is the original milk, if you will. Easily the most popular, cow's milk boasts nutrition that's tough to beat. Here is the nutrition for 1 cup of 2% cow's milk: 122 calories8g protein 4g fat12g carbs12g sugar 0g added sugar0g fiber309mg calcium (31% RDA)1.3mcg vitamin B12 (54% RDA)390mg potassium (9% RDA) Cow's milk has a lot going for it from a nutrition perspective.

So for example, if a recipe calls for one cup of evaporated milk, you’d need to use about 1⅔ cups of regular whole, 2 percent, or skim milk.

2. Non-Dairy Milk

Although you can find vegan evaporated milk made with coconut milk in some specialty grocery stores, you can also make your own dairy-free substitute for evaporated milk. Follow the above method with non-dairy milk like soy, rice, oat, or almond milk instead of cow’s milk.

3. Half and Half

Good news: you can substitute half-and-half for evaporated milk! Half and half’s thicker consistency is similar to evaporated milk, and can easily be used as a substitute in recipes. Your end result may be a bit richer, but who will be mad at that?

4. Heavy Cream

Ditto for cream—again, the fattier liquid will make the recipe turn out richer than if you’d used evaporated milk, but it won’t be bad. If you happen to have both cream and regular milk on hand, mix together half cream and half milk and use that as a substitute. That’s also how you make a quick and easy substitute for half-and-half!

5. Powdered Milk

In the unlikely chance you have powdered milk somewhere in your kitchen, you can also rehydrate the powder into evaporated milk—that’s not even really a substitute. Simply add 60 percent of the amount of water called for to reconstitute the product into regular milk, and you’ll be good to go. This is the closest alternative to using evaporated milk, but it also uses a less-common pantry ingredient so feel free to try out one of the more conventional swaps.

As satisfying as the first bite (or two, or three) of a freshly baked cookie can be, almost all of the joy I get from sinking my teeth into a delicious baked good actually comes from collecting all of the necessary ingredients. Besides filling my home with the mouthwatering smell of homemade treats, the act of baking tried-and-true recipes, as well as challenging myself to try new ones, increases my level of confidence as a baker. However, there have been times when I may have forgotten an ingredient or two, leading me to frantically try to improvise something so I can get the job done.
