There is no Christmas without eggnog. However, eggnog contains sugar and milk, which are not keto friendly. Luckily, I created this delicious Sugar-free eggnog recipe. recip
What Is Eggnog Made Of
Traditionally eggnog consists of eggs, egg yolks, vanilla extract, sugar, and heavy cream. Additionally, eggnog features alcohol, such as brandy.
However, since this is a keto eggnog recipe, it contains eggs, sugar-free sweetener, almond milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, heavy cream, and vanilla extract.
What Is The Best Alcohol To Put In Eggnog
This is a nonalcoholic eggnog recipe. However, you can spike the eggnog if you want to. Brandy is the most common way to spike eggnog. However, you can also use whisky, Cognac, bourbon, or rum. You can also use a combination of alcohol to spike the eggnog. For example, you can add a combination of dark rum and Cognac or brandy to the eggnog.
Tips For Making Keto Eggnog
Do not let the almond milk mixture boil. The cream on the mixture will cause it to curdle. If the almond mixture does curdle, you can place it into a blender and blend it until smooth.
Since this is a nonalcoholic eggnog, it can separate. There’s no need to panic. Simply place it into a blender and blend it until smooth. You can also whisk it until smooth if you don’t have a blender.
Eggnog should have a smooth texture. You may have scorched the almond milk mixture if it does not have a smooth texture. Heat the almond over low heat, and do not let it boil.
The eggnog can also have a lumpy texture if the eggs scramble. When you heat the eggnog on the stove, stir it constantly until it thickens. Stirring the eggnog keeps the eggs from scrambling.
Nevertheless, the eggnog will be strained, so there’s no need to worry too much if it scrambles.
