EGGNOG (non alcoholic!)

December 18th, 2023 Drink of the Week

It’s a bit fiddly to make this drink but if you’re up for it the effort is definitely worth it! It feels like a very traditional Christmas drink but with no guilt as it’s alcohol free and only has a little bit of sugar added!!


4 egg yolks
2 tbsp sugar or maple syrup (more or less to taste)
2x 400ml cans coconut milk
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg (freshly grated if possible)


Whisk the egg yolks for 2 mins until doubled in size.
Gradually add the sugar or maple syrup and whisk for another minute. Set aside.
Put the coconut milk, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small pot over a medium heat and bring to a simmer. Remove from the heat.
Turn the electric mixer to low and gradually whisk the hot spiced coconut milk into the egg yolk mixture until well combined.
Pour the mixture into a new clean saucepan and stir gently but constantly over a low heat for 10-15 mins until the mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon. Be patient! Don’t put the element up too high or the mixture might turn to scrambled eggs.
Remove from the heat and set the pan over a bowl of iced water to stop the cooking process. Stir occasionally for 2 mins.
Cover with a plastic wrap and place in the fridge to chill. The longer it chills the thicker it will become.
Serve with extra nutmeg and cinnamon sprinkled on top.
