  • 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. 
  • Serve!

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.
