Sugar Free Eggnog

Servings 8 servings
- 1/2 cup Swerve (or sugar substitute of your choice and you can use more if you want it sweeter)
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 6 eggs
- 4 cups unsweetened almond milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Nutmeg (to taste)
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream (optional)
- 1 tablespoon Swerve
- Pinch of nutmeg
- Cinnamon sticks
Place Swerve and salt in a large bowl. Stir to combine.
Add eggs and beat on medium with an electric mixer until smooth. (You can also beat by hand with a whisk.) Add the almond milk to the egg mixture and stir to combine.
Pour into a large saucepan. Heat on medium while stirring CONSTANTLY with a wire whisk. This is very important because you don't want scrambled eggs. You just want it to heat all the way through. Whisk over heat for 6 or 7 minutes or until you see steam forming. (You can also use a food thermometer and heat to 160°F.)
Remove from heat, then add the vanilla and nutmeg. Stir to combine, then pour into a pitcher and refrigerate until cold.
Garnish with Swerve sweetened whipped cream, nutmeg and cinnamon sticks, if desired. Note: If you want to keep this recipe "dairy free", then omit the whipped cream garnish.
Store covered in refrigerator for up to 3 days.
