I have the best Homemade Eggnog Recipe for you!

But before we get started, let’s discuss eggnog. It’s such a funny food for a couple reasons.

Healthy Homemade Eggnog Recipe

First, if you eat healthy, you must be thinking, what’s in the laundry list of ingredients in store bought eggnog?

What is Eggnog?

Second? You just have to wonder, what are the origins of this unique holiday drink and why is it called eggnog?

As opposed to the crazy long ingredient lists of store bought eggnog, my recipe is made with seven ingredients total.

Low Carb Eggnog Recipe

However, mine is low in sugar and high in fat which makes it the perfect holiday treat if you’re following a Keto Diet.

Keto Eggnog Recipe

Yes! Made with a base of heavy cream, and just a touch of sweetener, it’s keto eggnog.

Tips for How to Make Homemade Eggnog

If you want to make this eggnog recipe bright yellow, add ⅛ teaspoon of turmeric.

While the color is stunning, the nutritional benefits of turmeric are unparalleled.

This super spice has numerous health benefits including detoxification of the liver.

The batch I made for the photograph above does not have turmeric in it.

The froth in the eggnog in the photo is from the foamy egg whites on top.

Homemade Recipe for Eggnog

I’ve made this homemade eggnog recipe both with and without salt.

There is no denying that I am a salt-a-holic –which works really well for me given that my blood pressure is low.

I think it tastes much better with salt, you might find though, that you prefer this eggnog without salt.

Why Is It Called Eggnog?

I remember, back when the boys were in grade school, discussing the etymology (i.e., derivation) of the word “eggnog.”

According to Wikipedia, the drink may have originated in England, and it’s possible that it developed from a drink called “posset,” a beverage made of hot milk.

Eggnog’s second syllable, “nog,” seems to have come from the word “noggin” which is from 16th century English and appears to mean “small cup or mug.”

Nutrition Information

Whether it’s eggnog or any other recipe, you know I don’t like turning eating into a mathematical exercise!

That’s why I don’t use nutrition information, I just eat healthy and low carb.

If you need nutrition information, hop on over to myfitnesspal.com. I discuss this subject a bit more in a post called Nutrition Information.

Vegan Eggnog Recipe

My eggnog recipe above contains raw eggs.

If you’re concerned check out my Vegan Eggnog recipe!

Yes, it’s an egg-free, dairy-free eggnog made with an almond milk base.

For me raw eggs are not a problem, I’ve been feasting on raw eggs since I was a child, when I made the toll house cookie recipe almost every day after school.

I haven’t ever had an issue with raw eggs, in fact, sometimes I wonder if I tolerate raw eggs better than cooked eggs.

Dairy Free Eggnog Recipe

If you’re wondering how to make dairy free eggnog you’re in luck because my Vegan Eggnog is not only egg free, it’s dairy free as well.
