Around this time of year there is no shortage of Coquito flowing. Coquito is a delicious Puerto Rican Coconut Eggnog that lots of Puerto Rican families make around the holidays. If you’ve never heard of or tried Coquito, you are missing out. It’s so good and trust me, once you try it, you’ll be hooked. It’s super easy to make which is another reason I love it!
I make mine minus the eggs since I’m not a big fan of drinking raw eggs. Eggnog always kinda freaked me out and I would never drink it. This recipe is an egg-free version although there are some out there that use egg.
- 1 – 13.5 oz. Can of Coconut Milk
- 1 – 15 oz. Can of Creme of Coconut
- 1 – 12 oz. Can of Evaporated Milk
- 1 – 14 oz. Can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 1 tsp. of Cinnamon
- 3/4 cup of Coconut Rum (more if you like it stronger)
Add all ingredients together in a blender and mix for 1-2 minutes. Chill until ready to serve. It’s best served ice cold.
A nice bottle of Coquito even makes a great gift. I like to give a bottle as a hostess gift when visiting friends and family during the holidays.
Have you ever had Coquito before?
