A keto coquito recipe for lovers of this coconut rum co*cktail. Coquito originates from Puerto Rico and is a perfect drink for Christmas.

Although there may be some versions of Coquito that use egg yolk making it a coconut nog, the traditional recipe of coquito does not. This creamy festive drink has coconut cream, coconut milk, keto condensed milk and rum in it. Subtle flavours of cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg are added to make this a delicious coconut flavoured rum drink.

If you want to learn more about coquito, this is a great start. I love the description of “eggnog’sbetter tasting sassy cousin”! Check out this website for more.

Is coquito low carb?

Traditionally coquito can be high in carbohydrates due to the sugar content and is about 20g net carbs. This keto version of coquito is just 2g net carbs a serving. Once you swap the sugar with a low carb version the carbohydrates drop considerably.

The ingredients

To make a sugar free version of Puerto Rican eggnog you need to make the sugar-free condensed milk first.

The coconut cream can often be found in the liquor isle with the co*cktails mixers. Give it a shake before opening to make sure the coconut cream contents are mixed thoroughly.

For the rum, white or dark rum can be used. We use a good quality dark rum from Barbados or Saint Lucia. A decent tasting rum can make all the difference to the taste of this drink.

How to make keto coquito

An easy recipe for the holiday with minimum fuss, making a coquito is as simple as placing the ingredients in a blender. Giving it a blitz, adjust for any spices and rum. Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours and then serve.

I used my sugar free condensed milk to make this. The link for this recipe is here: Sugar Free Condensed Milk. If you are looking for a vegan option we have a keto vegan coquito recipe.

Sip carefully as it can be quite strong and Feliz Navidad to you all!


Store coquito in a sealed container or jar in the refrigerator. It should last up to 5 to 7 days.

Once stored in the fridge, the drink may solidify due to the coconut. Take it out of the fridge for about 15 minutes and give it a good shake.


Before you start enjoying a glass or two, follow the guide to low carb alcohol so you stay on track.

The traditional Coquito is made with Pureto Rican rum but you can use any white rum you can find. I often use delicious St Lucia rum, but I’m rather spoilt for rum here!

    This was very good.. very tasty and the condensed milk was awesome. Only thing is you didn’t specify that it was unsweetened coconut cream. I did not realize it came both ways. I’ve always bought the regular one (post keto days). So my coquito came out way high in carbs 🥺 18g per serving of coconut cream vs less than 1g of the unsweetened one! Big difference ugh. But I found an unsweetened coconut cream which I will be using to remake the coquito. I’ll be giving away out this batch 😢

      Good point on the coconut cream! I'll updated the recipe card, thank you. Delighted you enjoy it. I love it too!

    Please, let me know where did you find the coconut cream. I’m from PR.


    • Angela Coleby

      I find it in the supermarket near the spirits and co*cktails section. Pina colada uses coconut cream so it's often there!

    I just tried this, and it was such a good coquito. I struggled to find the coconut cream here in Puerto Rico, but I finally did. By the way, that condensed milk recipe is something else. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

      Thank you! So delighted you enjoyed it!
