Creamy Spiced Eggnog
Recipe & Content provided by Jordan Pie
Eggnog is the perfect drink to cozy up with – it’s creamy, nourishing, and full of holiday cheer.
Please note that the original eggnog recipe does include raw eggs. However, if you personally prefer not to consume raw eggs try the following method instead.
To make cooked eggnog, the only ingredient that will change is the eggs. Instead of two eggs, you’ll need 3-4 egg yolks (you won’t use the whites). Mix the egg yolks, collagen, sweetener, vanilla and spices together in a bowl. Heat your milk, making sure it’s warm but not boiling (as this will cook the egg yolks). Next, temper the egg and spice mixture by slowly pouring the warm milk over it and quickly whisk the ingredients together with a whisk or fork and then return everything to the saucepan. Cook for another 5 minutes to thicken slightly. Use a fork or a whisk to mix the ingredients through while it’s cooking. Now mix in the oil until everything is combined. Taste the mixture and adjust any of the spices or sweetener if needed. Remove from heat and place it in the fridge to chill. When it’s ready, serve the eggnog cold with a sprinkle of cinnamon, turmeric and nutmeg on top. If you put in the extra effort to make the eggnog this way, it will give it more of a custard-y texture and flavor. However, if you prefer it quick, simple, and refreshing, use the eggnog recipe below.
