Dairy-Free Eggnog

A lighter take on traditional eggnog made with almond and coconut milk and naturally sweetened with maple syrup. It's rich and creamy, dairy-free and can be served with or without alcohol for a delicious holiday treat!


Add almond milk, coconut milk, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves to a saucepan and heat until simmering (not boiling).

1. Simmer

Meanwhile, place egg yolks and maple syrup in a blender and blend until mixture is light and fluffy.

2. Blend

Once milk is simmering, turn blender on low and slowly add milk mixture a little at a time.

3. Blend in Milk

Add eggnog mixture back to saucepan and heat over medium-low heat, whisking until mixture thickens. Eggnog should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.

4. Thicken Eggnog

Remove from heat and let eggnog cool to room temperature. Transfer to a jar, cover and refrigerate overnight or for a few hours until chilled.

5. Chill

Serve chilled over a cube or two of ice with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top and a cinnamon stick. Add a splash of rum or whiskey, if using.

6. Serve
