Coconut Date Condensed Milk – 3 Ingredients (Vegan, Gluten Free & Raw)

My earliest memories of Condensed Milk are of a sticky, toothache inducing sweet cloying liquid which seemed to not only taste great to a 4-year-old straight from the can but also, doubled up as glue for craft! Of course, when my craft work was subsequently discovered by hundreds of ants and my mother, roughly in that order I learnt an important lesson, i.e. not to play with my food! 

This vegan condensed milk recipe not only can be assembled in 10 minutes when required,  and is also raw, so no cooking over a hot stove to thicken this mixture! I’ve used coconut milk from a carton in this recipe along with pitted dates for the thick mouthfeel and consistency.

Optional add-ins are vanilla bean paste, cardamom powder, cinnamon powder, or sea salt for a mouth-watering treat that goes well with pancakes or bread or, in smoothies. Happy cooking 😊 

 Here’s the recipe,

Coconut Date Condensed Milk

(This 3 ingredient raw condensed milk contains the goodness of coconut which thickens and makes the most heavenly tasting condensed milk when combined with pitted dates and water.)


  • Coconut Milk – 1.5 cups
  • Fine Desiccated Coconut – 3/4 cup
  • Organic Pitted Dates – 1/2 cup


  1. Add the desiccated coconut in coconut milk and blend well to mix.
  2. Mix in the pitted dates.
  3. Run on the highest setting until the dates and coconut are a homogenous mixture (approximately 4 to 5 minutes in a powerful blender, more if using a normal blender).


Use as required or, dig in with a spoon!



I am an enthusiastic plant based home cook and baker who delights in sharing my creations on unsuspecting non vegans, when they least expect it! When not recipe developing, testing or making, I'm found organising and/ or writing, the two other passions of my life ❤️


  1. I would totally dig into this with a spoon! I bet this would a great dip to set out for the holidays coming up too. So creative!

    Kimmy and I really appreciate you sharing about Healthy Vegan Fridays! 🙂

  2. Oh wow! I found this from your post on Healthy Vegan Fridays. I love that 3 ingredients actually means 3 real whole ingredients and as I have all of the ingredients I’m going to try it right now! 😀 Thank you so much for sharing 🙂

    1. did something similar (because didn’t have coconut milk just almond milk) and turned up great 😀 thank you for sharing

      1. Awesome 👏🏼 Thanks! I bet the almond milk tastes like heaven 😇

  3. This sounds yum!
    Well does it tastes similar to coconut chutney?

    1. Thanks Kavita 😊 I suppose it tastes like a sweet coconutty and Date dip. It’s not as horribly sweet as dairy based condensed milk is and much better from a nutritional perspective!
