Rich Almond Milk Eggnog

Background and History

Rich Almond Milk Eggnog is a dairy-free twist on the classic holiday beverage, eggnog. Originating in medieval Britain, eggnog evolved into a festive and creamy concoction enjoyed during Christmas and New Year celebrations. This version, made with almond milk, preserves the traditional richness and flavor, catering to those with dairy sensitivities or preferences.


4 cups almond milk (unsweetened)

4 large eggs

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup almond meal

1 cup coconut cream

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Optional: 1/2 cup dark rum or bourbon (adjust to taste)

Whipped coconut cream and additional nutmeg for garnish


Separate Eggs

Separate egg yolks from whites. Set whites aside.

Whisk Yolks and Sugar

In a bowl, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until well combined and slightly thickened.

Add Almond Milk and Almond Meal

Slowly add almond milk, almond meal, coconut cream, vanilla extract, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves to the egg yolk mixture. Whisk until smooth.

Optional Alcohol

If using alcohol, slowly incorporate the rum or bourbon into the mixture, stirring continuously.

Whip Egg Whites

In a separate clean, dry bowl, whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form.

Fold Egg Whites

Gently fold the whipped egg whites into the almond milk mixture until well combined.


Refrigerate the eggnog for at least 4 hours or overnight to allow the flavors to meld.
