Boozy Low Carb Eggnog

Have you ever tried eggnog?
Eggnog is a sweetened, dairy-based drink with whipped eggs, spices and booze; traditionally drank in the US throughout the Christmas holidays.

It’s not big in South Africa.

I have no idea why!?
It’s like a creamy, boozy, custard-y milkshake that instantly brings Christmas-cheer!

Boozy Holiday Eggnog {LCHF & Sugar-Free}

It’s also one of those treats that require the least amount of modification to be low carb – it’s really already LCHF, you just have to replace the sugar with a suitable low carb alternative such as xylitol.

I prefer to use brandy, but you could use rum too. Both have zero carbs.

[recipe title=”Boozy Low Carb Eggnog” servings=”4-6″ time=”15 min + chilling time” difficulty=”easy”]

You will need:

4 eggs, separated
2 cups cream
1/4 cup xylitol {fine or powdered}
4-6 tots brandy {or according to taste}
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp mixed spice / all spice
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla essence

Whisk the egg yolks together with the xylitol, spices and vanilla until pale and creamy.
Add the cream and whisk again until it’s mixed well.

In a separate bowl, using a clean whisk or mixer, whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.

Fold the whites into the cream mixture until it’s mixed properly.

Add the brandy and whisk again.

Chill for a few hours until it’s nice and cold – whisk again just before serving.

A cup of this on a hot SA holiday eve is just to-die-for!
It’s also perfect as a dessert for your holiday get-togethers and the ultimate banting treat. Seriously.

Also – don’t be put off by the idea of the raw eggs, it’s not ‘eggy’ at all, just creamy and delicious and very custard-like.

For a kid-friendly version, just leave out the brandy.
The kids really love this one – totally #kidapproved!
