Dairy Free Eggnog

This eggnog uses almond and coconut milk, egg whites and pure maple syrup. It's lighter in calories and dairy-free, but still just as delicious as traditional eggnog.

  • 2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 15 oz can light or regular coconut milk
  • 3 Pete & Gerry’s Organic eggs separated or ⅓ cup liquid egg whites
  • cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch freshly ground nutmeg
  • pinch ground clove
  • rum or whiskey optional


  • Place all ingredients except alcohol in a blender and process for 2-3 minutes.
  • Pour eggnog mixture into a saucepan and heat over medium-low heat. Simmer for 15 mins – whisking constantly, being careful not to boil or burn the liquid -- until the mixture has reduced and thickened. At this point the eggnog should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
  • Remove from heat and let eggnog cool before placing in the fridge to chill. Once cool, I transferred the eggnog into a large mason jar for storing in the fridge until ready to use.
  • Serve chilled over a cube or two of ice with a pinch of extra nutmeg on top. Add a splash of rum or whiskey, if using.
