Christmas Eggnog with a Fermented Twist

by Hannah Geddes |

The holiday season is about love, family, friends, and certainly food! It’s time to add a probiotic touch to your traditional Christmas eggnog. To achieve this, you’ll need to replace some of the milk with milk kefir.

Remember, there are two types of eggnog:
  • The first type is the one you buy at the grocery store. It is a cooked custard-like eggnog that is sweet and thick.
  • The second type is basically an uncooked eggnog and it takes about five minutes to combine, resulting in a light, frothy drink.
We highly recommend this, especially if you haven’t tried eggnog before. Give this recipe a try:

  • 2 cups fresh milk
  • 1 cup milk kefir
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 11/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 cup whipped cream (optional)
  • 3 - 4 tablespoons of sweetener (date sugar or powdered white sugar).
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • Cinnamon sticks (for serving)
  • Separate the egg yolks from whites and beat it in a large bowl until the color becomes light.
  • Add the sweetener into the bowl containing the egg yolks and stir well.
  • Next, mix the other ingredients, except the egg whites.
  • In a separate container, whip the egg whites thoroughly.
  • Finally, add the whipped egg whites gently to the egg yolk mixture.

You can serve it once it’s done or you can refrigerate it for later (ideally within 3 hours).

Here are some reasons to try our delicious recipe:

  • After separating the eggs, it takes less than 5 minutes to whip and serve.
  • It’s less wasteful because it uses all the eggs.
  • It tastes just as delicious as custard eggnog.
  • Homemade eggnog is certainly much more drinkable.
  • It is healthy eggnog and contains lots of nutrients.

Note: Be careful not to consume too much raw eggs in your meal.
