Can I Drink on Keto?
This is not an eggnog with alcohol, however, you can add it if you wish. The best keto-friendly alcohols are rum, vodka, whiskey, gin, and tequila. Check out this Best Low-Carb Alcoholic Beverages post for more information.
What Drinks are Ok on Keto?
Water is best! Coffee, tea, and low-carb dairy like unsweetened almond and coconut milk.
What is the Best Low-Carb Drink?
My answer will always be water. 🙂
The keto lifestyle can sometimes cause me to get dizzy and have brain fog. It can be really hard to focus. Each night before bed I like to drink bone broth. Kettle and Fire is my favorite brand. They have beef and chicken flavors. I add a little liquid aminos and hot sauce for flavor. You can sip it from a mug or eat it like a miso soup in a bowl.
I add 1 tablespoon of MCT oil to my coffee in the morning. This helps add additional fat to support keto macros and also helps with keto flu.

Keto Low-Carb Holiday Eggnog Drink
Keto Low-Carb Holiday Eggnog Drink is a quick and easy recipe perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. This keto-friendly beverage can also transform into a cocktail if you wish to add your favorite keto alcohol. This recipe uses almond milk, heavy cream, nutmeg, and cinnamon to produce a delicious drink the whole family will love!
- 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger (ground or paste)
- 4 eggs
- 1/3 cup zero-calorie sweetener
- 1 tablespoon zero-calorie sweetener
- cinnamon stick (optional garnish)
Homemade Whipped Cream (optional)
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 tablespoon sweetener
Be sure to watch the video above for step by step instruction!
Add the almond milk, heavy cream, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger to a saucepan on medium heat.
Separate the egg yolks and egg whites in 2 different bowls.
Beat/whisk the 4 egg yolks with the sweetener for one minute. This is important because you don't want the eggnog to clump.
Add the egg yolks to the saucepan. Stir and whisk repeatedly to avoid lumps in the eggnog. Heat to 170 degrees.
Beat the egg whites with a hand mixer or standing mixer for 10 seconds. Add 1 tablespoon of sweetener to create a meringue and mix until the meringue forms. Add it to the warm mixture. Remove the eggnog from the heat and add it to a pitcher.
Chill in the fridge for a minimum of 1 hour.
Homemade Whipped Cream (Optional)
Add the whipping cream to a mixing bowl. Use a hand mixer and mix for 2 minutes. Add in the sweetener. Mix until whipped cream forms.
Feel free to double or triple this recipe for large groups.
If you don't whisk repeatedly throughout this recipe your eggnog will be clumpy. The eggnog will naturally be thicker than the eggnog you buy in grocery stores. However, if you blend and whisk well there shouldn't be any lumps in the eggnog.
