5 from 2 reviews

Homemade eggnog is SOOO much tastier than store-bought. It is light, frothy, and as sweet as you like it. Use cultured dairy for a boost of probiotics!


Units Scale
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/3 cup of sweetener, to taste (see notes)
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 4 egg whites
  • 3 ounces golden rum (optional)


  1. Beat egg yolks in a large bowl until the color starts to lighten.
  2. Add the sweetener into the egg yolks and stir until completely dissolved.
  3. Stir in milk, cream, and nutmeg.
  4. In a separate container whip the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
  5. Gently fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture. Serve immediately or refrigerate and serve within 3 hours.


  • Feel free to use your favorite sweetener in this recipe. I always use date sugar because I’m like that… However, powdered white sugar is sweeter and will dissolve better.
  • Why not make probiotic eggnog? See the section above for details.
  • If you want to make a whole batch of spiked eggnog, add the rum directly into the yolk mixture. Otherwise, leave it out so that your guests can add it to their drinks.
  • Because of the health risks associated with the consumption of raw eggs, this recipe is not recommended for pregnant women, children under the age of 1 year, or anyone who may be immunocompromised.
