After seven years of being gluten-free, one gets pretty used to not eating all of the typical holiday treats. However, some of the dishes are harder than others to let go of. So, my mom and I have been testing recipes and coming up with holiday favorites that are must-haves, including The Easiest Paleo Eggnog Recipe for the Holidays!
This past weekend, my mom came over to do some holiday baking with me and the kiddos. She had a new recipe for Eggnog Cookies (that recipe to come!) that she wanted to try out in gluten-free and dairy-free. So, we needed a dairy-free eggnog recipe…
So, I hopped on Pinterest and found a paleo eggnog recipe. After mixing up the paleo eggnog, I realized it still wasn’t quite what we expected eggnog to taste like, so I figured I would do a few additions. We were amazed by this delicious and easy Paleo Eggnog in the end!!!
Easy Paleo Eggnog
- In a medium saucepan, combine the eggs, egg yolks, and maple syrup on low heat. Slowly whisk in the almond milk to completely combine. Whisk continually.
- Add in the cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Continue whisking until it thickens. (usually about 20 minutes – exercise those arms!)
- Once thick, pour into a container and let cool at room temperature. Then refrigerate or serve!
- Store in the fridge for up to 4 days. Stir or shake before serving.
The Paleo Eggnog is so rich and “creamy” you would never detect it is dairy-free! The eggs and almond milk pair so well together, just like milk and eggs.
My dairy eating husband and dad gave it a taste test and both said that they enjoyed it more than the original! And my mom said that it was yummier than coffee…. SAY WHAT?! #illtakethatcompliment
So, I’m pretty pumped about this Paleo Eggnog recipe!
