Low Carb Eggnog

glass of cold keto eggnog As a kid once I started seeing eggnog in the stores, it was offically the holiday season. We wouldn’t but it all the time because it was loaded with fat and sugar. And mom would always thin it down with more milk to cut down on the calories and to make it last longer.

I still crave eggnog as we get closer to Christmas. Luckily, it’s pretty easy to make a keto, sugar free version of eggnog. Keto eggnog is a combination of cream, and/or nut milk, egg yolks and your favorite sweetener. The hardest part is heating iy on the oven slowly to make sure the egg yolks don’t curdle. Even if you do curdle, you can strain them out and you will be left with creamy low carb eggnog.

Milk Options for Keto Eggnog

Other Nut Milk Options for Low Carb Eggnog:

  • almond milk
  • cashew milk
  • pili nut milk
  • hemp milk
