Once you try this rich and creamy homemade eggnog, you’ll wonder why you ever bought it in the first place!
Fun fact, my sister and I have the same birthday (nope, we’re not twins). Since our birthdays are at the beginning of December, our family birthday party has somehow morphed into a Christmas tradition.
We start by decorating the tree as a family (slightly delayed by a mandatory fashion show decked out in tree beads), followed by eating an inhuman amount of cookies and eggnog. For me, this is always the official start of the Christmas season!
If eggnog is also a part of your holiday tradition, you’re about to fall head over heels in love!
This eggnog has a luscious texture and a rich, creamy flavour that puts the prepackaged stuff to shame! Trust me, even if you can tolerate the regular stuff, once you’ve tried this homemade eggnog, you’ll never go back!
Keep it FODMAP friendly
This easy low FODMAP eggnog will cure any holiday craving! The best part is, this recipe has no FODMAPs!
Yep! You read that right! As long as you use lactose-free products, this eggnog only has trace amounts of FODMAPs! For my North American peeps, both Lactantia and Natrel both have lactose-free lines that go up to 35%.
That being said, this recipe does have a lot of fat. Fat is still on the list of general gut irritants. So if you know rich and creamy recipes bother your tummy, try leaving out the whipped cream at the end and starting with a small serving to see how that goes.

- 6 lg eggs, yolks separated
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 cups lactose-free whole milk
- 2 cups lactose-free whipping cream, divided
- 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- Warm up the milk and 1 cup of cream in a large saucepan over medium heat until it's lightly bubling around the edges of the pan.
- While the milk is warming up, whisk the egg yolks in a separate bowl until they're a pale yellow colour.
- Slowly add the warm milk to the eggs, while continuing to whisk. Then return the mixture to the saucepan and warm over medium heat until the eggnog is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Stir in the vanilla and nutmeg.
- (Optional) whip the remaining 1 cup of cream and fold it into the eggnog right before serving.
Recommended low FODMAP serving – 3/4 cups per sitting.
Prepared eggnog lasts 2-3 days in the fridge.
For an adult spin, stir in 1/2 a cup of bourbon when you combine the milk and the eggs, then continue with the recipe as written.
