I can hardly imagine Christmas without eggnog. This deliciously creamy, sugar-free drink makes the perfect holiday treat to enjoy with friends and family.

I included 4 variations so you can pick your favourite. Whether you are short on time, prefer your eggnog frothy, or you avoid alcohol, below are a few tips for the perfect keto eggnog.

Four Ways to Make Keto Eggnog

1. Classic Eggnog

My preferred way to make keto eggnog is with cooked egg yolks making it super creamy (see recipe and video below for details).

2. Five-Minute Eggnog

Process all of the ingredients in a blender (whole eggs for creamy or just egg yolks). Serve chilled or with ice. It's not as creamy as the cooked method but 100% fuss-free!

3. Classic Eggnog with Egg Whites

Follow the "Classic Method" as shown in the video below, or use the "5-Minute Eggnog" method explained above. When the eggnog is chilled, whisk the egg whites until they create soft peaks. Gently mix the fluffy egg whites into the chilled eggnog until frothy and well combined.

4. Alcohol-Free Eggnog

Simply use rum extract (to taste) and add ¾ cup more almond milk or cashew milk.

Using Raw Eggs?

If a recipe calls for raw eggs and you are concerned about the potential risk of Salmonella, you can make it safe by using pasteurized eggs. To pasteurize eggs at home, simply pour enough water in a saucepan to cover the eggs. Heat to about 140 F / 60 C. Using a spoon, slowly place the eggs into the saucepan. Keep the eggs in the water for about 3 minutes. This should be enough to pasteurize the eggs and kill any potential bacteria. Let the eggs cool down and store in the fridge for 6-8 weeks.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

The irony was that, like so many other people, I used to follow what I believed to be a healthy, balanced diet. I avoided most fatty foods in fear of clogging my arteries and putting on weight. I based my diet around whole grains and vegetables, and limited my intake of animal products. I did exactly what the general dietary recommendations advised: I exercised more and ate less. Still, nothing worked. Finally, I got tired of dieting all the time, and I was determined to regain my health by following a different approach.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Would this be okay to add to coffee, or would the eggs cook further? I'd love to make an eggnog latte...

This looks wonderful and I am ordering rum extract to add to it. Is the calories and carb calculation with the addition of the actual rum?
I want to make this very soon! The boys and I love eggnog!!!

Hi Lori, yes, the alcohol is included in the nutrition facts. I hope you like it! 😄

Can you use brandy instead of rum?

Reply

Yes, you can use brandy too!

Does the granulated Swerve crystalize when refrigerated? I've been using the confectioners form in other recipes which seems to avoid that issue but will use the granulated if it's not a problem in this particular recipe. Can't wait to try this - thanks!!

Hi Celia, no it does not. The sweetener dissolves completely when added to the hot liquid, even after it's chilled. I hope you like it! 😄
