Healthier Eggnog Recipe
I've been in the kitchen working on a healthier version for my eggnog-loving husband and I think we’ve settled on the perfect compromise. It's egg-less and it’s good both cold and warmed with a tad of peppermint and we recommend it paired with the eggnog or peppermint Bubbies Mochi Ice Cream as a delicious holiday treat!
We tried it first cold and pair with Peppermint Bubbies and this was my favorite way to enjoy it! The Bubbies ice cream are bite-sized ice creams wrapped in sweetened rice dough - low calorie and the perfect bite without indulging in a whole bowl of ice cream!
Then we added peppermint extract and heated it up and paired it with the Eggnog Bubbies and this was Josh's favorite way to enjoy it! And I will say the warm drink with the bite of cold ice cream was a great combination!
And lastly we used the original version as creamer to make a Chai Latte and this was both of our favorites!
So here is the recipe you'll want to start with:
2 cups almond milk
2 cups coconut milk (if you don't love coconut milk, sub in another milk altnerative)
3 TB maple syrup
3 TB honey
1/4 tsp nutmeg
pinch of sea salt
For alternate versions, you'll need:
Combine all the ingredients in a sauce pan on the stove and heat until boiling. Then simmer as you stir continuously for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and pour into a glass jar or bowl and let cool uncovered. Once cooled, chill in refrigerator at least 3 hours before serving.
For Warm Peppermint Eggnog:
Add peppermint extract to the mix while on the stove. Start with a few drops and adjust to taste preference. Drink warm from the stove or reheat in microwave per glass.
For Eggnog Chai Latte:
Brew chai tea as normal, use eggnog to taste as creamer.
