This easy Paleo eggnog is made with the perfect blend of spices and luscious coconut milk for the most divine holiday drink. Egg yolks make it extra creamy and delicious.

When I was a kid, eggnog was a treat.  It was also, well, sickly sweet so it makes sense that I wanted to drink it ALL the time. I’m pretty sure that I drove my mother crazy with all my begging and now, as a parent, I can see why she caved in after the 100th time.

First, I had no idea how filling this Paleo Eggnog recipe is. WOW.  

This made about 2 cups (0.47 l) but I could only drink 1/4 cup (0.95 l) before feeling like I was going to burst.

It’s also spicy, lightly sweet goodness and a delicious drink for the holiday.  If you have any rum in your pantry, I highly encourage you to spike it and kick it up a notch.

What you need to make this Paleo eggnog

  • Full Fat Coconut Milk
  • ground cinnamon power
  • nutmeg
  • cloves
  • pure vanilla extract
  • dark maple syrup
  • egg yolks

Some common question about this Paleo Egg Nog Recipe

Can I eat raw eggs? This answer depends on the quality of your eggs. If you are eating eggs from pasture raised chicken that have access to free-range and space, I would say yes. If you are worried about raw eggs in eggnog, please note the yolks are cooked in this recipe.

Can I use any milk for eggnog? Yes, please feel free to us almond milk, hemp milk, whole milk, etc to make this recipe.

Egg Nog is something I don't care for, but my husband loves it. I suppose I could be nice and make some for him :)

In the thirty years of my life, I've never had Egg Nog before. Maybe thirty one will be the magical year...

Joanna, you are lightly cooking the egg since you are putting into warm liquid. You won't taste it at all but it will make this drink extra filling :)

I love egg nog but have never tried to make my own. This sounds easy enough.
