Coconut Milk Eggnog: A Dairy-Free, Naturally Sweetened Version of the Classic Eggnog Beverage.
Give me mulled cider or hot chocolate at the holidays, but keep your eggnog to yourself.
Or so that is what I once said. I absolutely despised eggnog. I think it had something to do with the fact that I was warned it could make me sick due to raw eggs and so I stayed away. And then when I ventured to give it a try, it was so overly seasoned with ground nutmeg that I just decided it was not for me.
Until I made this Coconut Milk Eggnog.
Coconut milk gives this nog a rich, luscious taste sans dairy. And yes, I did use egg yolks to add additional richness traditional to eggnog. I simply slowly cooked the eggs to make this drink safe for everyone.
My secret to perfectly tempering the eggs into the hot custard, may surprise you. I use my blender. I slowly drizzle the heated coconut milk into the blender while on low, then transfer the mixture back to the stove and heat until thick. You know the eggnog is ready when you can run your finger down the middle of a wooden spoon and the line stays clean. Just like this:
