  • 2 star anise
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3 cloves
  • 1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk use sweetened condensed coconut milk to make it Vegan
  • 1 15 oz. can cream of coconut
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract optional
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract optional

  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 cup Barbancourt rum
  • freshly grated nutmeg for garnish

Instructions

  • Turn off heat and leave for at least one hour. SEE NOTE
  • Strain evaporated milk and discard the spices.

  • Blend until well mixed.
  • Add rum and blend until mixed.
  • Transfer to a bottle and chill for several hours.
  • To serve, garnish with freshly grated nutmeg.

Notes

It is preferable to put the evaporated milk with the spices in the refrigerator overnight, after you simmer it. By letting the spices infuse overnight, your kremas will be much more flavorful.
If you do this overnight methodology, it is so flavorful that the vanilla and almond extract is not necessary. However if you are doing the quick method, then I would add it.
  • For an instant version, omit steps 1-5 and instead use ground spices.
  • Add 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ground star anise and 1/4 teaspoon ground clove.
