Coquito

Hi everyone, today I want to share a very basic but also a very delicious recipe for a winter drink, I know a lot of people think of COQUITO as a Christmas or a Holidays drink but I think of it as an EVERY DAY drink. I’ve made it multiple times through out the season and I hope you all get to try it and enjoy it

1 or 2 cups of white rum ( I like Don Q Cristal)

28 oz Coconut milk (I personally like to use the Goya brand for this)

1 can (14oz) Condensed milk

1 can (12oz) evaporated milk

1 tsp. Vanilla extract (or as desired)

1/8 tbsp. ground nutmeg (if desired)

Mix all the ingredients in a blender on high and refrigerate. Believe me it will taste delicious in any season!

Butternut squash soup

Hi guys. I am here to share a very delicious and very easy recipe for a butternut sqash soup, you can totally make this with your kids too.

You will need:

• 2 lbs (1 kg) butternut squash

• 1 tbsp vegetable oil (I used olive oil because that is my preference)

• 1 onion, chopped

• 2 cups of vegetable stock

• 2 tbsp honey

• salt and pepper to your liking

Preheat your oven to 400 F. Cut the butternut squash in half lengthwise and spoon out the seeds and pith.

Then use a peeler to remove the skin and cut into chunks, place on a baking sheet with salt and pepper then drizzle the oil on top. Roast for 20 minutes and remove from the oven.

Add the onion and stir. Return to the oven and cook for another 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool a little.

Place the butternut squash and onion in a food processor with half of the stock. Blend into smooth.

Place the paste into a saucepan with the remaining stock and honey. Simmer for about 4-5 minutes on low heat. Let cool a bit. You can serve it with toasted baguette, cheese or parsley. I used scallions, basil and parsley because I love all 3 flavors. Enjoy!!
