Rose and I made this dairy free egg nog recipe on Facebook this week and it came out great. Not only is the egg nog dairy free, but I made sure to pasteurize the eggs so it;s safe to drink, and the taste and texture are unreal.

How To Make Dairy Free Egg Nog
Making dairy free egg nog is easy, and nobody will be able to tell the difference. All you need to do is swap milk and cream with almond milk and full fat coconut milk.
Start by beating the pasture raised egg yolks with 1/4 cup of maple sugar until light and creamy. You can also use maple syrup and it will work fine. Slowly whisk in the hot almond milk, but make sure not to scramble the eggs.
Pour the mixture back in the pot and cook over medium-low heat for 4 minutes, or until the temperature of the mixture is 160F. This will pasteurize the eggs and make them 100% safe to consume.
Add 1 cup of coconut milk and let the egg nog rest for 3 hours in the fridge so the flavors develop. If in a hurry, you can skip this step. When ready to serve, beat the egg whites and fold into the egg nog. Serve and grate some fresh nutmeg over the top!
Is Egg Nog Safe For Kids To Drink?
To make egg nog safe for kids, you will want to either buy pasteurized eggs or pasteurize them yourself. I highly recommend doing it your self because you can buy the best quality organic and pasture raised eggs at the store. The grocery store only has GMO hen house chicken eggs, those are terrible quality.
In this recipe, you will gently cook the egg nog mixture over medium-low heat for about 4 minutes, whisking most of the time. Once the temperate of the egg nog reaches 160F, the eggs are pasteurized and safe to eat.
