Home made condensed milk, need help

I love key lyme pie. But the recipe I use calls for sweetened, condensed milk. I have problems with sugar and so am looking for a replacement for the condensed milk. I'm thinking that evaporated milk mixed with sucralose or a sugar alchohol might do the trick. Any one know how much sugar by volume is contained in a 14 oz. can of condensed milk?

My recipe for "homemade condensed milk" calls for 2/3 cup sugar. If you'd like the recipe, just say so.

Home made condensed milk

Home made Condensed Milk

1 cup powdered milk
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 to 1/3 cup boiling water
3 Tablespoons butter

Blend all in blender and process until smooth and thick. Refrigerate. Makes 1 1/4 cups - same as 14 oz can.

I've used this in the flan recipe that calls for condensed milk and no one could tell the difference.
