I love eggnog but I haven’t had it for ages because of its super high sugar content and the dairy which I can't tolerate. But now, with so many options for non-dairy milk, and ways to reduce the sugar content, I’ve created this lovely healthy(er) recipe (let’s face it, it’s never going to be a super food, but at Christmas, why not!). So here you go, Healthi-er Egg Nog!
Place all the ingredients into a blender (apart from the brandy) and blend for a couple of minutes. Pour the eggnog into a pan and warm gently over a medium heat on the stove. Don’t let it boil and keep whisking so that it doesn’t bubble. You want it hot but not bubbling.
Once cooled, pop in fridge overnight. In the morning, take it out and whisk it again. If it’s too thick, add some more milk. Now add some rum/bourbon if you so wish, or just serve as is, with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top!
