How to Make Keto Eggnog

This delicious drink is so simple and only takes a few minutes to whip up.

First, heat the milk, cream, nutmeg, and cinnamon over medium heat for about 10-15 minutes. While that warms up, whisk your egg yolks and keto sweetener together.

To combine the mixtures, you'll have to temper the eggs – read on for some tips on how to do so.

Once everything is combined, heat for 10 minutes in a saucepan until it's thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.

Turn off your heat, add in vanilla and bourbon (or dark rum), stir, and serve!

You can serve your keto eggnog warm or chilled – it'll taste amazing either way.

How to Temper Your Eggs

To make the perfectly creamy keto eggnog, you have to temper your eggs into the drink. Tempering will slowly bring your eggs up to a warm temperature without turning them into scrambled eggs.

Once your hot milk mixture is warmed up, take a 1/2 cup of the milk mixture and pour it into your egg mixture. Whisk quickly so your eggs don't clump and scramble. Pour another 1/2 cup and whisk, then one more 1/2 cup.

Once your mixtures are completely combined, pour the egg mixture into the saucepan and stir.
