Cinnamon-Infused Creamy Keto Eggnog Recipe

Gather together with family this year and enjoy a cup of my Christmas cheer!

This cinnamon-infused creamy keto eggnog recipe is sugar-free so feel free to indulge this holiday season without any of the guilt!

I remember the first winter holiday season after we adopted the keto lifestyle. We were walking through the grocery store and saw the first jugs of eggnog on the shelves for the year.

My husband looked at me, with desperation in his eyes, and asked, “Can we still have eggnog???”

You see, every year from Thanksgiving till the New Year, we have a cup “Christmas Cheer” 3-4 nights a week. My husband pours 3 cups of eggnog and puts a splash of Kraken Black Spiced Rum in two of the cups.

He gets a very cute and comical sense of pleasure out drinking Christmas Cheer every year! The man should not be denied his seasonal eggnog.

Luckily, with a few quick swaps of ingredients, almond milk for cow milk and Swerve sweetener for sugar, it’s a very easy recipe to ketofy!

In a large bowl, whisk the egg yolks and Swerve sweetener together with an electric hand mixer until most of the sweetener has dissolved.

Keto Eggnog Recipe Whisking Eggs

While you continue whisking, slowly pour the cinnamon-infused milk mixture into the egg mixture. This will temper the eggs, slowing cooking them without scrambling them.

Pour the combined mixture back into the saucepan and continue to simmer over medium/medium-low heat for an additional 10 minutes or until the mixture reaches a temperature of 170 degrees F and coats the back of a spoon.

Remove the saucepan from the stove, and using a mesh strainer, strain the cinnamon-infused eggnog into a mixing bowl.

Finally, stir in the vanilla extract, pour into a sealable container, and chill in the refrigerator.

The seasonings tend to settle to the bottom of the container, so give it a good shake or stir before serving.

Drink it plain, add a splash of spiced-rum, or a dash of nutmeg on top and enjoy!
