Angie Martinez’s Low Fat Coquito

YouTube Preview Image

The holidays are the perfect excuse to indulge. I mean let’s be real, who wants to count calories while everyone else is enjoying the cheese plate and guzzling wine. It’s a time to celebrate and enjoy the fine things in life – and in my family eating tends to be at the top that list.

That’s exactly why I’m always looking for ways to remix festive recipes using healthier ingredients. We don’t want to lose the authenticity of the dish, but we don’t want the guilt either.

Traditionally, at my family gatherings, I bring a bottle of Coquito. Coquito is a sweet, Puerto Rican drink made from coconut, milk, and rum. It’s creamy, has a cinnamon scent and is the color of winter white, making it the perfect holiday drink — and it’s always a hit at parties. I was determined to find a way to make a guiltless version of Coquito. It took a few tries, but I finally got it. And the best part? My family hasn’t even noticed! In fact, the new and improved version tastes even better than the original. With the healthier ingredient substitutions, it’s light, airy, and pairs perfectly with appetizers, the main course and dessert! All you need is half a cup over ic, and you’re good to go!
