Healthy Eggnog

Mmmm… Eggnog. A classic holiday drink that shall never be replaced. There is nothing like grocery shopping mid-october, and seeing the first of the eggnog cartons stocked with the milk. That’s when, before you know it, the holidays are upon us.

Christmas is my favourite time of year. Family gatherings, bright lights, giving to the ones we love, and of course, let’s not forget, holiday food.

As a kid, I always loved mixing eggnog with some milk, and now I love using it as a creamer for my coffees. Or, if rum and eggnog is your jam, this recipe will be perfect for you as well. This eggnog recipe is meant to be enjoyed for all ages 🙂

I am not here to diss eggnog, and the joy it brings to so many, including myself; however, this healthier egg nog recipe will also bring you that same joy. So try it out, and thank me later.

Eggnog

This recipe is healthy and easy. Don’t you love when those two words are in the same sentence? Me too.

All you need is a blender, the ingredients, and someone to taste test with<3.

This recipe is also egg-free, and is therefore vegan, so for any vegans who have not been able to appreciate this magical drink, Merry Christmas.

My Go-to Coffee Drink

I love having an Iced Americano, then adding a few splashes of eggnog, or frothing it. If you do not have a milk frother, it is an investment I highly recommend making. Here is the one I purchased from Amazon. Try a splash of this in your morning coffee, it will definetly put your day off to a good start!
