Holiday and Christmas parties are not complete without eggnog. Historically it is a sugar-laden, high-calorie drink with a hefty amount of alcohol. This super delicious Light Non-Alcoholic Eggnog is heavy on taste and low in calories. If you want to add alcohol, bourbon, brandy, or rum, go well.
4 cups unsweetened almond milk
6 egg yolks
2/3 cup raw honey
1 tsp ground nutmeg, plus more for topping
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, plus more for topping
1 tbsp whole cloves
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
In a blender, add the unsweetened almond milk, egg yolks, raw honey, ground nutmeg, and ground cinnamon, and then blend for a minute until smooth.
Pour the mixture into a saucepan, add the cloves, and heat over medium heat.
Cook the eggnog for about 10-15 minutes until it thickens and slowly cooks the eggs. It will be frothy at first.
The mixture should get hot but not simmer or boil. If it begins to boil, whisk vigorously and temporarily remove it from the heat.
Once the eggnog has thickened, turn off the heat, and stir in the vanilla extract.
Strain the mixture using a fine-mesh strainer to remove the cloves, then pour into an airtight container and place in the fridge to chill for 6-8 hours, or overnight.
When ready to serve, sprinkle with a little nutmeg and cinnamon.
