What’s Inside: This holiday mocktail will remind you of eggnog, but without the eggs and alcohol! This classic Puerto Rican drink marries up coconut milk and cinnamon which is right up my dairy-free alley. Salud! It’s AIP and Paleo, too!
Instead of decking my halls with alcohol this year, I’m going for healthy fats and collagen… HAHA. #NutritionNerd STATUS. That doesn’t mean I can give up the deliciousness that is coquito. I grew up drinking it virgin, then advanced to the Bacardi version my Grandmother makes every single year. No one makes it better than her (most Puerto Ricans say that about their Abuelas too), and getting tipsy with your gorgeous, silly grandmother is one of the most fun things EVER. But my copycat Paleo Coquito will have to do.
I swapped out the eggs and condensed milk for pure coconut cream and the rest is simple.
Mix that up with your favorite dairy-free milk (more coconut, almond, or cashew would all be great) and collagen, of course. This is a great base for those who are drinking alcohol too!
The combo of cinnamon and vanilla with coconut is what MAKES THIS. You’ll see what I mean… SALUD!
