Non-alcoholic eggnog

Christmas Drinks


Makes 2 servings


  • 2 cups of milk
  • 1/4 cup of sweetened, condensed milk
  • 1/2 tsp. of ground cinnamon
  • 5 whole cloves
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp. of freshly grated nutmeg, plus more for garnish
  • 1 tsp. of vanilla extract


1. Combine the milk, cloves, cinnamon and condensed milk over a low heat in a deep sauce pan until the mixture is heated through.

2. Slowly increase the heat to medium and bring the mixture to a low boil. Be careful to avoid a rolling boil.

3. In a medium bowl, combine the eggs and sugar. Beat the eggs until lightened in colour and fluffy.

4. Slowly temper the eggs by adding about 1 tbsp. at a time of the hot milk mixture into the egg and sugar mixture.

5. Once enough of the milk mixture is in the egg mixture, pour it all back into the sauce pan and heat it over medium heat for 3-5 minutes until thickened, stirring frequently. You will know it’s thick when you can leave a clean line on the back of a spoon.

6. Add the heavy whipping cream, nutmeg and vanilla extract to the mixture and heat through. Do not bring to a boil.

7. Remove form the heat and strain the mixture using a fine mesh strainer to catch the spices.

8. Place the eggnog in an airtight container and place it in the refrigerator and let it cool for at least one hour, preferably longer.

9. Serve cold and garnish with additional grated nutmeg if desired.
