What Puerto Rican do not like a chilled Coquito during Christmas meetings? I made my own version of vegan coquito and then make this Coquito Pancakes topped with berries and a coquito sauce.
The recipe for Vegan Coquito is here. The only detail… is that the coquito has rum, but believe me that you won’t feel it in the pancakes :”D
For the coquito sauce on top of the pancakes, I mixed three of my Nuts Spreads: Coconut, Walnut and Cashews. You can use any spread if you do not have those. I used 1:1 ratio of the Spread and coconut milk.
The pancakes are fluffy and moist and they DO taste like coquito! ❤ So if you want to turn on your Christmas Spirit make ahead these pancakes!
