Keep it clean and simple this holiday season with this healthy and easy homemade eggnog recipe! An upgrade to the classic, you can enjoy this nutrient-rich festive drink with no guilt. Try it virgin or spiked, plus there's also a dairy-free modification that's just as decadent!
Add egg yolks to a large bowl, and using an electric mixer, beat until light and fluffy. Set aside.
Add milk, heavy cream, power creamer, collagen, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg to a medium saucepan and bring just to a boil, whisking every so often.
Remove from heat and gradually add the hot milk mixture into the eggs, just a little at a time to ensure your eggs don't cook.
Return combined mixture to the saucepan, and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes, or until your mixture reaches 160°F/70°C. Remove from the heat, remove cinnamon sticks and cloves, and pour into a large pitcher. Cover and transfer to the refrigerator to chill for at least an hour. The eggnog will continue to thicken, so be sure to give it a good stir before serving.
When ready to serve, taste for sweetness and add desired amount of organic liquid Stevia drops (I recommend somewhere between 5-10 drops). You can garnish each glass with fresh nutmeg, if desired.
OPTIONAL: Add a shot of bourbon or dark rum to each glass to make this adult eggnog ;)
Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Stir again before serving.
