This easy Vegan Coquito recipe is guaranteed to be a hit at your holiday parties this year! It’s just as rich and creamy as the traditional Puerto Rican drink, but made entirely from plant-based ingredients. This coconut and rum filled cocktail is a must-make during Christmas time!


Equipment Needed


  1. Blend the remaining ingredients. Into a blender jar, add the vegan evaporated milk, cream of coconut, vegan condensed milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and rum, as desired. Blend until completely smooth and well combined.
  2. Chill for at least 4 hours. Pour the coquito into a pitcher or container and place in the refrigerator to chill for at least 4 hours. If you want to serve this immediately, we suggest serving it over ice. 
  3. Serve. Once chilled, serve in chilled glasses and enjoy!


  • Rum: Adjust the amount of rum to your liking! Start with ½ cup and add more as desired. Any type of rum such as white rum, spiced rum, and dark rum all work well. 
  • Storage: Transfer any leftover coquito to an airtight glass bottle, such as a mason jar, and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
  • Additional Sweetener: If you find your coquito could use additional sugar, add extra sweetener to taste. We’d recommend using agave or a classic simple syrup over maple syrup to help keep the color of your beverage light!
