Dairy Free Eggnog {A Christmas Favorite}

It’s the holiday season! It’s my mission to help educate you on healthier swaps for your favorite indulgences. With this recipe of our dairy free eggnog, you’ll get to enjoy the classic beverage during the holiday without the junk.  Let’s take a look at the back of some classic Borden eggnog sold at your local grocer. It has high fructose corn syrup, sugar, corn syrup, nonfat milk solids, “natural & artificial flavors”, and carrageenan.

NOPE NOPE NOPE. This recipe is creamy and delicious while made with only pure ingredients! Ingredients include pasture raised eggs, a Whole 30 approved cream called Nutpods (coconut+almond), and some spices. Store it in the fridge up to 5 days and use it as a holiday coffee creamer. You can’t go wrong with this dairy free egg nog!

We’ve also bought the dairy free egg nog at the stores, which taste good, but I still haven’t found a “perfect” one without certain additives or thickeners.

If you’re wanting a real holiday feel, pair this up with our gluten free and dairy free gingerbread cookies!

Prep Time10 minutes
Servings: 2


  • 1 11oz Nutpods Original
  • 3 Egg Yolk
  • 1 Tbsp Maple Syrup Pure, Organic
  • 1 Tbsp Honey Raw, Local
  • 1/4 Tsp Nutmeg Or 1 Drop Vitality Oil
  • 1/4 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Tsp Vanilla Extract


  • In a bowl or stand mixer, beat egg yolks for a couple of minutes.
  • In a saucepan, bring Nutpods (or full fat coconut milk) to a simmer.
  • Add honey, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla, and nutmeg to saucepan and stir.
  • Add a spoonful of the hot milk mixture to the egg yolks and slowly stir. This is called tempering.
  • Repeat until you have about a cup of milk in your egg mixture.
  • Once eggs have been tempered, add them to the saucepan and simmer for a bit.
  • Allow egg nog to cool. I like to then serve or store in mason jar in the fridge.
  • ** This also makes a magnificent coffee creamer for the week 🙂
