Say no to Store-bought eggnog! Why you’ll also find thickeners and stabilizers, artificial colors and flavors; some are also sweetened with high fructose corn syrup.
Making your own eggnog will spare you the additives found in store-bought varieties as well as you can change out the sweetener for raw honey which will actually give an immune building element to this tasty festive drink! Add flavorings like orange zest, vanilla and cinnamon can also give your homemade eggnog an additional health boost.
Nutrient Dense Egg Nog
8 egg yolks
4 cups organic coconut milk
6 tablespoons Raw Honey or maple Syrup
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
½ teaspoon nutmeg (I am also a fan of using Indian Massala Spices in my nog!)
1 tbspn cinnamon
Whisk egg yolks and vanilla in a glass bowl. Heat milk and sweetener in a double boiler or a pan inside a pan of water – to prevent overheating of liquid. Stirring constantly, slowly add in egg mixture, stir until thickens on back of spoon but not until turns into a custard! Use cheese cloth or strainer and strain liquid into large glass care jar. Let cool completely – add rum or amaretto if you’d like! Before serving add in nutmeg and cinnamon!
