Eggnog is one word. Did you know that? I didn't! I've always spelled it as two words! Wacky stuff!
When eating a low carb and sugar free way of life, sometimes it becomes reasonable to adopt meals, snacks, beverages or desserts that are outside the norm. Eggnog is something that I view as being a part of the winter season. However, it's actually quite delicious! It's a good way to get some healthy fats. It's also great as a base in protein shakes. Whisk some into your morning coffee or tea, for a different kind of taste sensation!
Most eggnog recipes use raw eggs. However, the store bought stuff is at least pasteurized. I'm picky, I suppose. I balk at raw eggs. Even my normal eggs that I eat for breakfast are famously overcooked
. So, because I'm fussy ... and I don't mind making a custard base ... this thick and luxurious eggnog recipe is cooked!
I made it quite regularly when I was focused on a zero carb way of eating and wanted something different. I drank a lot of eggnog, that month!
Try it. Don't wait for winter. It's good ... year round!
