This homemade Keto Eggnog Recipe is rich and creamy, with the perfect amount of spice. Heavy cream, mixed with almond milk, egg yolks, vanilla and nutmeg. Add bourbon, rum, or brandy for an indulgent, spiked keto Christmas cocktail. (low carb, gluten free, sugar free, keto) Only 2 net carbs!


Units Scale
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup golden monk fruit (I use this brand) code peace for 20% off
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1 3/4 cups unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • (rum, brandy, or bourbon), optional - see note above
  • fresh whipped cream, for serving
  • cinnamon, nutmeg, or pumpkin spice, for serving


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sweetener until well combined and creamy. 
  2. Heat the heavy cream, almond milk, nutmeg and salt in a sauce pan over medium-heat. Whisking frequently, bring to a gentle simmer. 
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and very slowly temper the cream mixture into the egg and sugar mixture. (See notes above about how to temper egg).
  4. Pour the combined mixture back into the sauce pan and heat it over low heat, whisking frequently, until it reaches 160°F. 
  5. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract and alcohol, if using. 
  6. Strain the eggnog through a fine mesh sieve and into a large jar with a lid. Chill overnight. 
  7. Top with fresh whipped cream and cinnamon, nutmeg, or pumpkin spice, before serving.


  • Storage: Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. 
  • Make it dairy free: To make this a dairy free keto eggnog recipe, substitute the heavy cream with full fat coconut milk. 
  • Add alcohol: For a spiked eggnog, add a little bourbon, brandy or rum. For a rum flavor, but in a non-alcoholic version, you can add a couple teaspoons of rum extract. 
  • Make an eggnog latte: Steam the eggnog and mix it with a couple of shots of espresso for a delicious keto eggnog latte.
