There are some things in life that are just better low-carb, and eggnog is one of them. Ditch the skim milk and go straight for rich, heavy cream.
This is a delicious low-carb eggnog. Upon my husband’s first taste he proclaimed, “That’s the best eggnog I’ve ever tasted!” You’ll want to quickly grab these ingredients so you can make them part of the upcoming festivities, and you’re sure to wow your guests with this one too!
It can be difficult coming up with recipes during the holiday’s that aren’t filled with sugar, grains, and lots of other junk! I know. I’ve been there. Done that. Got the t-shirt.
If you want to take control, be sure to make a plan.
- Take the time to think through the holiday treats you want to have at your parties.
- Find some recipes that will fill the void, like this egg nog recipe.
- Spend some extra time in the kitchen making goodies for yourself and your family.
Your body will thank you for splurging on extra time, and not the extra sugar!
1/2 pint heavy cream
2 eggs (yolks and whites divided)*
1/4 cup xylitol
1/4 teaspoon pure stevia extract
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
dash of cloves
dash of cinnamon
- Using a mixer, beat egg yolks until they lighten in color.
- Add the xylitol, stevia, cream, nutmeg, vanilla, cloves, and cinnamon. Beat until well combined.
- In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Whisk egg whites into cream mixture.
- Chill, enjoy, and know that this is what egg nog is supposed to taste like!
Keep in mind, if you are adding rum to your eggnog, some rums have added sugars. Be sure to read the label or you will not end up with a sugar-free drink.
This recipe calls for raw eggs. Yes, I know some people have a problem with that and are scared of salmonella. If you are one of those people you'll have to find a different recipe (but you'll be missing out!). I would highly recommend using farm fresh eggs for this sweet delicacy.
