If you can make a whimsical piece before Christmas vegan gingerbread banoffee, where can you find a substitute for kinuski sauce? Dulce de leche is usually made from condensed milk. Caramelized condensed milk can be found ready-made on the shelves of many stores. There is no ready-made vegan version, so I had to develop a suitable recipe for a while.

I tried making kinuski:

  • from coconut milk (too strong coconut aroma)
  • almond milk (it tasted really strange)
  • of vanilla flavored soy milk (works perfectly!)

With vanilla-flavored soy milk (Alpro Vanilla), the end result is exactly what I hoped for, i.e. a soft, crunchy texture without side flavors. The children were excited to taste the dulce de leche so eagerly that the banoffee threatened to be completely unmade...

Please note that 4/5 of the liquid evaporates during cooking. With this recipe, you will prepare 2 dl of ready-made dulce de leche. As you can see in the picture, the finished dulce de leche is so thick that a spoon leaves a decent hole in it!

Vanilla-flavored soy milk makes a wonderful vegan kinuski sauce. This recipe makes 2 dl of ready-made dulce de leche.


  • 1 l Alpro Vanilla drink (vanilla-flavored soy milk)
  • 1 dl of dark cane granulated sugar
  • 0.25 tsp baking soda


  1. Mix all the ingredients together in as big a pot as possible. The size of the pot matters because the baking soda makes the mixture boil over easily, especially during the first 5 minutes.
  2. Cook on medium heat for 30 minutes, stirring the mixture occasionally.
  3. Continue cooking for another 15 minutes, but watch the consistency and color of the mixture.
  4. When the color and consistency become kinuski-like, the kinuski sauce is ready. At the end, test the mixture's composition with a spoon. When it starts to stick to the spoon (and also to the bottom of the pot), you know the kinuski is ready. Note that the kinuski thickens as it cools.
