Healthy Eggnog Recipe for This Holiday Season Made With Coconut Milk and Almond Milk

For this year’s holiday party, try this healthy eggnog. Made with coconut milk and almond milk instead of unhealthy heavy cream, this eggnog lets you enjoy a holiday treat without guilt.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups canned full-fat coconut milk
  • 2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3 whole cloves
  • 3 allspice berries
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg, plus additional for garnish

Preparation

  • In a large saucepan, heat the coconut milk, vanilla almond milk, maple syrup, cinnamon, cloves and allspice over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
  • In a medium bowl, with a handheld electric mixer, whip the egg yolks until they are light yellow.
  • With a whisk, whisk constantly, and gradually add about 2 cups of the warmed milk mixture into the egg yolks.
  • Pour the egg yolk mixture into the remaining milk mixture and whisk to combine. Heat the mixture for 5 minutes, but do not boil. (Boiling will curdle the milk.) Remove from the heat. In a sieve, strain out whole spices. Whisk in the nutmeg.
  • Transfer to a glass bowl and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Top with a sprinkle of ground nutmeg, if desired.
