Christmas Coconut Eggnog
So Christmas this year was great :) It was a nice small Christmas with just my family. It was nice to be all together for the holidays since I'm not sure if I'll be able to come back home for Christmas next year! You never know what life has in store or where you'll be. But anywayyyyy, Santa was good to everyone this year. No one got any coal :) But I have to say that this eggnog was a big hit this year. No one else in my family eats dairy free but they enjoyed it as well!
I can't really take credit for this recipe. It was my mom who came up with it. We usually just buy eggnog so I didn't know she knew how to make it. But apparently my Grandpa used to make eggnog every year when she was young so the recipe was hiding in her head! Here it goes
Coconut Milk Eggnog
5 cups of coconut milk
about 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to a full tsp depending on your taste
1 tsp of vanilla
1/3 cup of honey (or 1/2 cup of sugar)
grated nutmeg on top
This recipe is so easy. Rule of thumb is that you use 1 egg per cup of milk, no matter what kind of milk you use. You can easily substitute regular milk in for the coconut milk in this recipe. You just throw everything into the blender straight out of the fridge so everything is cold, and blend the hell out of it. Our honey is super duper sweet from our bees so I decided that 1/3 of a cup would probably be better, but if your honey isn't super sweet or you would rather use sugar, use 1/2 of a cup. This was so yummy with our Christmas breakfast and while we opened presents, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
