Paleo Eggnog

eggnog
Ingredients:
4 beaten egg yolks
3 cups coconut milk, almond milk, or whole cream
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
ground nutmeg and cinnamon to taste

Directions:
Mix egg yolks, 2 cups of coconut milk or cream, and syrup. Stir gently but constantly over medium-low heat until the mixture thickens enough to cling to and coat the back of a spoon, about five to ten minutes. Be patient with this process – if you turn the heat up too high or don’t stir, the egg yolks might turn into scramble eggs.

Remove from heat and set the pot in a larger bowl filled with ice water (careful, so no water overflows into the eggnog!) and stir for 2-3 minutes then add the last cup of milk/cream and the vanilla.

If you want to add any additional holiday spirit (a few tablespoons of rum, bourbon or whiskey) to the eggnog, now is your chance (but wait till after the challenge to do this). Let the mixture cool down to room temperature then chill for a while longer in the fridge. The longer you let the eggnog chill, the thicker and more custard-like it will become. Before serving, generously dust with cinnamon and nutmeg. If you can, buy whole nutmeg and grate it yourself (a microplane zester works great for this).

Makes 4-6 servings.

For a quick eggnog fix, one serving: In a blender, mix 1-2 raw egg yolks, 6 ounces coconut milk, 1-2 teaspoons maple syrup and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract. Blend for 30 seconds and serve dusted with nutmeg.
