If you’re a fan of Coquito and you love iced coffee, then you’ll love this Coquito Iced Latte recipe. This drink recipe is inspired by a Coquito iced latte I had in Puerto Rico at a local coffee shop. With flavors of coconut and cinnamon, this latte is delicious and easy to make!
What’s in a Coquito Iced Latte?
This latte is made with espresso, non-alcoholic Coquito, and ice. The Coquito contains cream of coconut and coconut milk, along with evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk, plus vanilla and cinnamon. Authentic Puerto Rican Coquito is traditionally made around the holidays and often contains rum.
Kitchen Tools and Equipment
Here’s everything you’ll need to make a Coquito Iced Latte.
- Espresso maker (I use a Nespresso machine)
- Blender for making the Coquito
- A glass jar or other container for storing the Coquito
- Your favorite iced coffee glass
- Evaporated milk
- Sweetened condensed milk
- Cream of coconut
- Coconut milk
- Whipped cream (optional)
Coquito Iced Latte Recipe Tips
To make this recipe, you’ll need to make the Coquito Base separately first. After blending all the ingredients for the Coquito, you can use a glass mason jar (20 oz size or larger) to store it in the fridge.
If you don’t have an espresso maker, that’s okay. You can make this iced latte using strong coffee, French press coffee, or overnight cold brew.
