[koh-KEE-toh] (Puerto Rico)

Coconut eggnog is a Puerto Rican Christmas tradition and can be prepared both with and without the addition of rum. Coconut milk is available in regular and low-fat versions in most supermarkets.

Yield: Serves 8


  • 2 14-oz. cans low-fat coconut milk
  • 1 12-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 egg yolks or 1/3 cup egg substitute
  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups (16 oz.) whole milk


Combine all ingredients except whole milk in a blender. Cover and process at medium-low speed until smooth. Add whole milk; blend at low speed until combined. Cover and chill until very cold, at least 3 hours. Stir well before serving in small glasses without ice; dust servings with additional ground cinnamon, if desired.
