This Soon-to-Launch Condensed Milk Alternative Is Vegan-Friendly

Crossing our fingers it will be available here, too.

Just because you're vegan or lactose-intolerant doesn't mean you can't enjoy a creamy glass of Vietnamese coffee or the killer combo of strawberries and condensed milk-not anymore, anyway. Nestlé will be launching a vegan alternative to the famous Carnation condensed milk in the U.K.

The vegan condensed milk alternative is made with a blend of oat and rice flour, making it free of dairy or other animal products. "[The product] has been in development for 18 months, bringing the plant-based, dairy-free trend straight into the kitchen for home baking," says Vittoria Simms, marketing lead for Dairy Brands U.K. "We have seen the desire to bake at home and experiment with new ingredients really boom this year, with a 61% rise in sweet baking in March and April."

"It has been a challenge for vegans to find suitable alternatives to make dairy or caramel-based sweet treats or desserts, without having to compromise on taste, texture or appearance," she adds in the statement.

The vegan condensed milk alternative go on sale in Ocado supermarkets in September, Morrisons U.K. supermarkets in October, and Tesco supermarkets in the U.K. and Ireland in October as well.

With veganism on the rise in the Philippines as well, it can only be a good thing that more people will be able to enjoy condensed milk's sweet, sticky, creamy goodness. We're curious about how it'll taste like-here's hoping it arrives at our shores, too.
