Coquito for Kids Recipe and Free Printable (Puerto Rican Eggnog)
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
1/2 cup of sugar*
Sprinkle of cinnamon
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!
