    Default eggnog

    I have been toying with the idea of making my own eggnog this year for
    Christmas eve and day so the calories wont matter but I still donít want it
    to spike my bg.

    I found a recipe that sounded good that was pretty simple..off the top of my
    head it was a cup of milk and half a cup cream and 6 egg yolks and a cup
    sugar of which I would sub and spices like cloves and cinnamon and nutmeg at
    end

    you cook it all in two steps of which I cant remember but its cooked the
    cooled and drank like the next day.

    anyone attempt to make this with a sugar sub and any thoughts on which would
    be good..would a cooling one like erythritol matter in a cold drink?

    I haven't done it, but I can tell you that any time I've used erythritol
    in dairy, it's been a really offensive effect. In your situation, I'd
    probably opt for a combination of xylitol and liquid sucralose to lower
    carbs, laxative effect and bad taste and sensations.

    Or some other combination using liquid sucralose to lower the carbs and
    other effects.

    I'd also use watered down heavy cream in place of milk, since lactose is
    such a fast sugar.

    Buy a bottle of DaVinci Sugar Free Eggnog flavor, and mix with a little
    cream and water using immersion blender to thicken a bit.
    Pour over ice. Simple and good, but maybe you want something more special
    for Christmas.

    Sounds like custard I didn't realise you cooked eggnog. I thought it
    was a warmed up version of egg flip (raw eggs beaten in milk with a bit
    of vanilla and sugar to taste).

    a really lot of desserts begin with eggs sugar milk and vanilla..lol

    toss in flour of various amounts and you got pancakes and cake..lol

    but yes you can do it raw but safety you cook the yolks in the milk with the
    spices and sugar and at the last add cream and vanilla and nutmeg to the
    cooled egg mix
