Yummy “Better” for You Eggnog!

You know I couldn’t come off and say it’s “good” for you because then it just wouldn’t be eggnog. You know what I’m sayin’? But I did manage to make it “better” for you so you can drink it with a lot less guilt.


  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cups sugar (I used Coconut Sugar. It’s Low Glycemic)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups coconut milk (the refrigerated kind), divided
  • 1 tablespoons rum extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Additional nutmeg, optional


  • In a heavy saucepan, whisk together eggs, sugar and salt. Gradually add 2 cups of milk. Cook and stir over low heat until a thermometer reads 160°-170°, about 30-35 minutes. This is the labor intensive part.
  • Pour into a large heat proof bowl; stir in the rum extract, nutmeg and remaining coconut milk. Place bowl in the freezer for about 2 hours or until mixture is completely cool. You could put it in the fridge but if you’re like me you don’t want to wait that long. If mixture separates, process in a blender until smooth.
  • When ready to serve, beat cream in a large bowl (put beaters and bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes to speed up the process) on high until soft peaks form; whisk gently into cooled milk mixture. Pour into your favorite Christmas glasses and enjoy! Sprinkle with nutmeg if desired. Yield: Approx. 7 servings.
  • This could easily be doubled for a party.

Let me know if you try it and like it!




  1. I'm not into the drink, unfortunately. My mom used to make some awful eggnog when I was a kid, and she put raw eggs in it! It was gross!

    Hope your cold is doing better! (((Hugs)))

  2. Yummy!! Shared it & pinned it too! Notice how recipes don't get many comments {my experience lately anyway}? But I bet you are getting a lot of page views for it!

    Big sounds-egg-nog-a-licious-to-me size hugs to you! Love you friend! Get better FAST! :)


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
