  • 1 12 oz can evaporated milk
  • 1 14 oz can cream of coconut Goya or Coco Lopez
  • 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract


  • Beat egg yolk in a bowl until they get thick. In large saucepan, beat together eggs and evaporated milk. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thick enough to coat a metal spoon. Remove from heat. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover and refrigerate. Serve garnished with an extra sprinkle of cinnamon!


Give the mixture a day or two to chill in the refrigerator to combine flavors. Best served cold.
