The Best Keto Eggnog 🥛

I feel like eggnog is one of those things you really love or you really hate, there is no in-between. As a kid I couldn’t stand eggnog! Now, a few years ago I tried it again, and absolutely loved it! Same exact thing with my husband except he’s a bit more obsessed with eggnog. It’s definitely one of our favorite holiday treats but if your on a keto diet, you know this drink contains just too much sugar!

Que in delicious keto eggnog! Our recipe is creamy, filling, healthy, and gets the Christmas elves dancing. It’s an indulgent treat to be enjoyed by all, especially my husband and I. 😋😍 Homemade eggnog is always better and your friends and family won’t even know the difference, it’s that good! So, don’t be a Ebenezer Scrooge this holiday and try our thick & creamy keto eggnog!🥛

Step By Step: How Make The Best Keto Eggnog

detailed step by step how to make eggnog

  • Steps 1-2: Heat almond milk, sweetener, and salt over low heat until temp reads 100 degrees on a cooking thermometer.
  • Steps 3-4: Beat your eggs then slowly add just a ladle full of the heated almond milk, whisking it in to quickly temper them.
  • Step 5: Once tempered, add the eggs to the rest of the almond milk in the pot. 
  • Step 6: Stir very frequently, scraping the bottom of the pan to prevent scorching. Heat the milk and egg mixture until it reaches a temperature of 160-170 degrees. Do not ever let your mixture boil, you want to heat it very slowly over low heat only. This process will take about 30 minutes. 
  • Step 7: Once heated to temperature, pour the mixture into a large mixing bowl that is sitting in an ice bath. 
  • Steps 8-11: Add in 2 more cups of Almond milk, the vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Whisk to combine well. Don’t worry if some of the spices settle at the top.
  • Step 12-13: Place the mixture into the fridge, cover it, and let it sit to cool down overnight. 
  • Step 14-15: The next day, beat the heavy whipping cream until it forms soft peaks. Then, fold the heavy whipping cream into the milk and egg mixture until well combined.

Serve immediately with a garnish of sprinkled cinnamon, or refrigerate in an airtight container to serve later.🥛😋

Too Much Sugar!? No Problem!
Like I said earlier, traditional eggnog is packed full of sugar and flavored syrups. Our keto eggnog is still tasty and sweet, we just use a zero glycolmic and zero calories sugar replacement- Lakanto Monk Fruit! We use this for every single one of our recipes because there’s zero aftertaste, tastes like sugar, and has a 1:1 ratio to sugar. If you want to see for yourself try it out!

The stores deprive you a good 9-10 months out of the year without eggnog but I say NO WAY to that!
