Two Eggnog recipes. The first, a Vegan Eggnog Coffee (or tea) Creamer that will transform a boring cup of coffee into a healthy eggnog latte. The second, a Light, Dairy-free Eggnog recipe made with dairy-free milk, ground spices and a touch of coconut sugar.

Then, I was reminded of the Dairy-free Eggnog recipe I created in 2011. It was good, but really, really high in fat (which some of you didn’t like). I figured, while I was on an eggnog roll, I would try to recreate the recipe and make it lighter for those interested.
Combine remaining ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, on medium heat. Whisking every 30 seconds or so to avoid the mixture from burning. Reduce heat to low.
Remove 2 tablespoons or so of the hot mix and slowly pour into the bowl with the egg yolk in it, stirring constantly. This will temper the egg so that it doesn't scramble in your eggnog. Do not skip this step. Once the first 2 tablespoons have been added, pour in another 2 tablespoons.
Then, add the egg mixture to the heated mixture. Whisk for 1 minute. Then, allow to simmer with a lid off for 5 minutes.
Remove from the heat to cool then transfer to a glass to allow to cool for 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.
Will keep for 3 days in the fridge.
Coconut Milk: Don't like coconut? No worries. You can use any dairy-free milk of choice here. This Unsweetened Almond Milk would be great, too!
Egg: You could try making the eggnog vegan (egg-free) as well by removing the egg and stirring in 1 teaspoon of ground chia seed.
