Low Carb Coquito

A low carb coquito recipe for lovers of this coconut rum cocktail. Coquito originates from Puerto Rico and is a perfect drink for the holidays.

Although there may be some versions of Coquito that use egg yolk making it a coconut nog, the traditional recipe of coquito does not. This creamy festive drink has coconut cream, coconut milk, keto condensed milk and rum in it. Subtle flavours of cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg make this a delicious rum drink.

How to make keto coquito

An easy recipe for the holiday with minimum fuss, making a coquito is as simple as placing the ingredients in a blender.  Giving it a blitz, adjust for any spices and rum.  Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours and then serve.

I used my sugar free condensed milk to make this. The link for this recipe is here: Sugar Free Condensed Milk

Sip carefully as it can be quite strong and Feliz Navidad!

Tips

The traditional Coquito is made with Pureto Rican rum but you can use any white rum you can find. I use delicious St Lucia white rum, but I’m rather spoilt for rum here!

Once stored in the fridge, the drink may solidify due to the coconut. Take it out of the fridge for about 15 minutes and give it a good shake.
