It’s Christmas, and I am full-Christmas spirit! I planned a Latin flair Christmas party for the kids (post coming soon)!  For the drinks besides  fruit punch, and strawberry lemonade I served coquito for kids.

Coquito is like a Puerto Rican Eggnog and of course, it has liquor in it. It is a creamy coconut-based drink that has rum in it.   But for the kids I’ll be making it “sin” which means “without” the liquor!
Coquito is a very popular drink during Christmas time in Puerto Rico. It takes me back to my isla bonita during the most festive time of the year.
To make this kid-friendly version of coquito I used the following ingredients:

1 packet of pure creamed coconut 7 oz.  (this has no sugar)

1 can evaporated milk
1 can condensed milk
2 cans of coconut milk
1/2 cup of sugar*
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Cinnamon sticks
Mix all of the ingredients together and pour in a glass jar.   *Since the creamed coconut has no sugar you can actually adjust the sweetness of your coquito. You can use the 1/2 cup or less if you’d like.

Chill, shake and serve.

Will you be making your own coquito for kids?

I have a free printable for you. It’s actually a jpeg file, that you can print in whatever size you may need. I would suggest to save and upload to a Microsoft Word doc, and adjust the size of the image for your label.

Or you can right click on the image below, and save as. 

¡Buen provecho and Feliz Navidad!
