Dairy-Free Eggnog recipe

Oh, eggnog. We have a complicated relationship.

My great-uncle used to make a huge punch bowl of classic eggnog that he set out on Christmas Day, and I always turned up my nose at it as a kid.

When I was older, I tried the store-bought stuff, but I never liked it. It tastes so weird to me.

Then, last year, I tried a version of eggnog that actually tasted delicious. The smooth, creaminess of the eggs and milk, plus the flavor of delicious rum. So good!

Why you’ll love this recipe

As a lactose-intolerant person, I can somehow tolerate cheese and a drop of half-and-half in my coffee in the mornings. Sadly, I can’t handle classic eggnog. I don’t mind that it has eggs in it. It’s the cow’s milk that bothers my stomach.

If you’re anything like me, you’ll love this recipe!

  • It’s dairy-free, so perfect for anyone who can’t enjoy dairy.
  • You can make it vegan with egg replacers.
  • It tastes just like regular eggnog — no one will know the difference!
  • And it’s way, way better than store-bought.

Ingredients

I came up with this quick and easy Dairy-Free Eggnog to serve just in time for Christmas.

It uses almond milk and coconut milk for a dairy-free base, plus eggs, sugar, maple syrup and rum — and it tastes just like the stuff you can get on the shelf. Better, actually.

This recipe does include eggs, so if you wanted a full-on vegan drink, you could always use a vegan egg replacer.

How to make Dairy-Free Eggnog

You’ll need to get out a blender for this. If you don’t have a high-powered one yet, maybe add one to your holiday wishlist? You won’t regret it.

A high-speed blender pulls together the most delicious eggnog. You’ll need to use the blender once to make the base and once to whip the egg whites.

The base will need to rest in the fridge for a couple of hours.

To finish each glass, use a nutmeg grater to grind fresh nutmeg over the top of each drink and garnish with a cinnamon stick. So classically Christmas and something everyone can drink.

I’m so glad that eggnog and I are figuring things out. This recipe definitely helps. I asked my uncle to write down his recipe for me last year — and though this post isn’t it — I’ll still cherish that recipe always. For the memories.

More holiday drinks

Eggnog is a classic, but there are so many great drinks to enjoy this time of year!

You could use this dairy-free eggnog to make an eggnog martini from my friend Brandy. I honestly can’t wait to try this!

Wassail and apple cider are two delicious drinks that make your home smell so warm and inviting.

Or you could enjoy a yule mule, made with cranberry, lime and ginger beer. It’s one of my most popular holiday drinks.

Hoping that you — if you celebrate — have the most wonderful Christmas this year. I’m very grateful for the gift you give me every day: reading Feast + West. Thank you, and Merry Christmas!
