This easy rum cream recipe is sugar-free, dairy-free, and keto-friendly!
A couple of years ago, we visited Turks & Caicos and brought back a bottle of rum cream as a souvenir. When we got back home, we opened the bottle and tasted it. Woah! I expected it to taste something like Irish Cream. But no, this was much more intense. This rum cream was spiced with flavors native to the Caribbean. It was fantastic in coffee and hot chocolate
The bottle was gone all too soon, and I kicked myself for only buying one. I tried buying different rum creams stateside. But none of them tasted anything like the one I brought back from Turks and Caicos. Also, I had adopted a ketogenic lifestyle, and the rum creams I found were loaded with sugar.
So I started to experiment. I made spiced rum, so I knew there was no hidden sugar. I made sweetened condensed milk out of coconut milk and powdered monkfruit sweetener. Then I blended the spiced rum, sweetened condensed coconut milk, almond milk, and spices. The flavor took me back to the beach. I always have a bottle on hand to make my coffee or hot chocolate more fun.
