Mango Coquito

Coquito is a traditional Puerto Rican creamy drink that is beloved and obsessed over during Christmas on the island. It’s a sensationally creamy eggnog without eggs, and very sweet, made with sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, and coconut milk. It’s very naturally tropical, and adding mangoes seems natural. This mango version makes the drink feel less sweet, by adding depth with mango purée, the tiny bit of natural acids naturally balance out the sugars. It’s also the perfect cheery alternative for those who are fearful of the raw eggs in a traditional eggnog.
