Dairy Free Baileysjump to recipe
We're talking dairy-free baileys today, my fuzzy little man peach! Dairy-free baileys tastes exactly like regular baileys – except, because you're making it from home, you know exactly what is going into that glass of creamy goodness. Best of all, it's a breeze to make and whether you're dairy-free or not, I argue this version is the tastiest.
Have you ever drunk Baileys from a shoe? My college years are pocked by memories of: drinking beer from a blender pitcher (sorry, Mom), pizza rolls (oh GOODNESS, those were good), and giggling for HOURS about Old Greg and his Baileys. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, click here. WARNING: Old Greg falls in a really dry, slightly (or maybe very) strange humor range. It's quote-worthy, odd, reminds me of my friends from college, and somehow has me craving a glass of Baileys.
This dairy-free baileys is really simple to make. It requires both full fat AND light coconut milk. Note that I have tried making it with just one kind of coconut milk and I've also tried it by skipping the stovetop portion of the instructions – both failed, you MUST follow the instructions as written. If you do, you'll have the creamiest, most delicious, no-junk-filled baileys to sip on.
I like to serve up my dairy-free baileys on the rocks with a spoonful of whipped cream (dairy-free option here), a few chocolate crumbles on top, and a sprig of fresh mint. It's a lovely, dessert cocktail to serve up after a dinner party!Print

- Add one can of full-fat coconut milk and maple syrup to a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and let cook for 10-15 minutes, until reduced by about half, then remove from heat.
- Add the light coconut milk, coffee, and whiskey to the reduced coconut milk and whisk to combine. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours then enjoy cold with whipped cream and shaved chocolate!
- If you'd like a more mocha-flavored Baileys, you can add 1 tablespoon cocoa powder to the coconut milk and maple syrup mixture then follow the instructions to reduce it as written.
- For this recipe, we recommend using coconut milk with guar gum. Gum-free coconut milk is more likely to separate. If this does happen, simply shake the bottle or blend the mixture to re-combine.
