With the holiday season just around the corner I thought it would be a good time to mention one of my favourite drinks of the holiday season. Eggnog.
Eggnog, is a chilled sweetened diary-based beverage, traditionally consumed throughout Canada and the United States during the Christmas season.
Homemade eggnog has a pure, custard-like flavor and is less sugary and less questionable ingredients than most of the eggnog sold in stores. All you need is a few fresh eggs, some milk and full-fat cream, maple syrup or sugar and some nutmeg.
Here is a quick diary free recipe.
Ingredients (serves 2)
- 4 raw egg yolks;
- 300ml of coconut milk;
- 1-2 teaspoon of maple syrup (or coconut sugar);
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract;
- 30ml of rum (optional).
Place all ingredients into a blender for approximately 30 seconds. Place in the mixture into the fridge. The longer you let the eggnog chill, the thicker and more custard-like it will become.
Before serving, dust with ground cinnamon and nutmeg.
