Korean cooking ingredients

Condensed milk

Yeonyu 연유

Condensed milk, also known as sweetened condensed milk, is an essential ingredient for patbingsu (Korean shaved ice with sweet red beans and fruit). Drizzling this  sweet and slightly sticky condensed milk on top of patbingsu will give it sweetness and make it taste more like ice cream when it’s mixed with shaved ice.

    Condensed milk is just a thick syrup of 50/50 milk and sugar – you could probably create your own with soy milk and sugar or coconut cream and sugar. Just a thought :)

    oh, you are a vegan. You make vegan kimchi! I haven’t posted the recipe that needs condensed milk yet. Patbingsu (shaved ice with sweet red beans and fruit) recipe will be posted soon. After I post the recipe, let’s talk about it again.

    I was wondering what could replace the condensed milk for vegans? Maybe coconut cream? I have never had condensed milk so I don’t know what it tastes like or consistency.
