If you are health conscious and watching over your blood sugar lever this eggnog latte is the ideal treat for you this Holiday season. So, let’s get started!
4 large egg white
2 large egg yolk
1/2 cup Swerve Sweetener (or 1/4 cup Swerve and 1/4 tsp liquid stevia extract)
1/4 tsp salt
4 cups unsweetened almond milk, cashew milk, or coconut milk
2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, divided
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 cup whipping cream (use coconut whipped cream for dairy-free)
1 tbsp powdered Swerve Sweetener
Whiskey, rum, or brandy, if desired (you can also use rum extract)
2-2/3 cups hot strong brewed coffee (French or another dark roast)
1. Whisk eggs, yolks, sweetener and salt together in a large saucepan. Slowly whisk in almond milk until well combined. Cook mixture over low heat while stirring constantly until it becomes thick enough to coat the back of a spoon (this can take up to 15 minutes).
2. Stir in 2 tsp vanilla and nutmeg. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and chill for at least three hours and up to 2 days.
3. Just before serving, whip cream with powdered sweetener and remaining vanilla into soft peaks and gently fold into the egg mixture. Stir in coffee. Add 1 oz liquor or liqueur to each glass and pour eggnog over. Stir gently and sprinkle with grated nutmeg.
This recipe serves 8, ideal for a party treats. Each serving has less than 1g NET CARBS.
