I can’t imagine the Christmas holiday season without eggnog. 🤤 For as long as I can remember, my mother and I have been long-time eggnog lovers. We love buying eggnog from the store and gulping it down by the mug full.

However, last year, I decided to actually read the nutrition label on the back of the PET brand of eggnog that we so faithfully included in our Christmas season budget.

My Favorite Eggnog

My entire heart sank as I read the nutrition label!

Why are there 21 grams of carbs in a half cup of eggnog?!

And 20 grams of sugar?!

Again, I say, my entire heart sank. What’s a slimming girl to do?

Should I binge out, drink the entire carton, and knock myself out of ketosis? Don’t judge me. I legit love eggnog and have drank an entire quart before.

Or, should I find a low-carb recipe to help me survive the holiday season?

Yeah…I liked that option better, too.

The Search for a Better Alternative

I went on a hunt for eggnog in all of my foreign supermarkets last year. For those who don’t know, I live and teach in China.

I found absolutely nothing. I started searching for low-carb, keto alternatives, and came across some recipes from a few blogs that I browsed. One of the recipes was from Gnom-Gnom that called for egg yolks and xylitol. Another recipe was from Wholesum Yum that also called for egg yolks and coconut milk. I found another recipe from a Taste of Home that called for vanilla pudding…🤔

So the only issues that I had with the first two recipes were (1) some of the ingredients and (2) the amount of time it took to actually make the eggnog. The issue that I had with the third recipe was that it wasn’t keto-friendly enough in my eyes, not to mention – vanilla pudding?? 🤨 But I won’t knock it until I try it.

I don’t plan to try it, sis. I don’t plan to try it.

I kept searching and came across a recipe that was much better for my impatient hunger monster.

Blender Eggnog Recipe

May God bless the Chunky Chef! Raw eggs were still included in Amanda’s recipe, and although I didn’t make her version either, she is the one that gave me the idea about making my own recipe in the blender.

Who knew you could mix the basic ingredients in a blender?! 😱

How I Made It Ketovore Friendly

I looked at the primary ingredients that the Chunky Chef used.

  • Eggs ❌
  • Sugar ❌
  • Whole Milk ❌ (allowed on Carnivore but not for Keto)
  • Heavy Cream ✅

I started looking at what I had on hand and what I needed to get. I had heavy whipping cream, truvia and OOOFlavors’ eggnog flavoring. I needed to buy some low-carb, high fat nut milk to use as my base so off to Food Lion I went to get what you see in the video below.
