Super Creamy Keto Eggnog

Super Creamy Keto Eggnog

I can hardly imagine Christmas without eggnog. This deliciously creamy, sugar-free drink makes the perfect holiday treat to enjoy with friends and family.

I included 4 variations so you can pick your favourite. Whether you are short on time, prefer your eggnog frothy, or you avoid alcohol, below are a few tips for the perfect keto eggnog.

Four Ways to Make Keto Eggnog

1. Classic Eggnog

My preferred way to make keto eggnog is with cooked egg yolks making it super creamy (see recipe and video below for details).

2. Five-Minute Eggnog

Process all of the ingredients in a blender (whole eggs for creamy or just egg yolks). Serve chilled or with ice. It’s not as creamy as the cooked method but 100% fuss-free!

3. Classic Eggnog with Egg Whites

Follow the “Classic Method” as shown in the video below, or use the “5-Minute Eggnog” method explained above. When the eggnog is chilled, whisk the egg whites until they create soft peaks. Gently mix the fluffy egg whites into the chilled eggnog until frothy and well combined.

4. Alcohol-Free Eggnog

Simply use rum extract (to taste) and add ¾ cup more almond milk or cashew milk

Using Raw Eggs?

If a recipe calls for raw eggs and you are concerned about the potential risk of Salmonella, you can make it safe by using pasteurized eggs. To pasteurize eggs at home, simply pour enough water in a saucepan to cover the eggs. Heat to about 140 F / 60 C. Using a spoon, slowly place the eggs into the saucepan. Keep the eggs in the water for about 3 minutes. This should be enough to pasteurize the eggs and kill any potential bacteria. Let the eggs cool down and store in the fridge for 6-8 weeks.
