How to make Ulu Hye's

Homemade Condensed Milk

Forget the sickly sweet store-bought condensed milk and have a go at making your own stash at home! Perfect for our Bounty balls recipe or Vietnamese-inspired iced coffee, we’re excited to share our homemade recipe with you below!




Combine the Mylk Base and water, and blend for 1 minute to make the milk.

Combine milk, sugar and pinch of salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil, quickly reducing on low to simmer. Be sure to not let it boil for any longer than a second or two as this can prevent it from thickening up later on in the process. Simmer on low for an hour, stirring every 10-15 minutes until the quantity has halved and turned into a syrup.

Don't be alarmed if it doesn't thicken up to what you would expect as it thickens up once cooled. Once cooled, transfer to a clean jar (we love using an old Mylk Base jar) and pop it in the fridge.

Note: this can be used for up to a week
