Dairy-Free Eggnog

I was inspired to make homemade dairy-free eggnog by Sunny at And Love it Too. (Make sure you check out her great tips for separating eggs!) You may prefer Sunny’s recipe, which has less coconut milk and more sweetness, but I thought I would share my version also.

Dairy-free Eggnog

dairy-free, refined-sugar free

Puree in the blender:
8 egg yolks
1 can of canned full-fat coconut milk
Pour into a mixing bowl and set aside.

Add to a medium/large sized pot:
3 cups unsweetened almond milk OR Tempt hemp milk
1 can of canned full-fat coconut milk
1/2 3/4 cup coconut sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp a pinch of allspice

Bring to simmer. Slowly ladle a little of the hot liquids into the egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly. After you have whisked in about a cup of the hot liquids, transfer the yolk mixture to the pot. Whisk while simmering for about three minutes. Remove from heat and serve or refrigerate for later.

    What is hemp milk? I am completely grain free, dairy free, and legume free, and soy free, though I DO eat eggs. If hemp will create a sensitivity for me, what can I substitute for it?

    I am DYING to try this now! It’s on our Christmas menu for sure. My kids are going to be so excited to have this treat. I think I might try subbing cashew milk for the hemp though. Thank you Kelly!

    This looks fantastic! I was wondering if you thought your cashew milk would sub okay for the hemp milk. Thanks oodles!

    Thanks guys!

    Hemp is a seed, but cashew or almond would work fine too.

    Nelle, The $30 is for 6 pounds of coconut sugar, but you could substitute any sweetener.
