Sinless Eggnog that taste Sinful!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh......MAZING! This just happened!  The littles were asking for Eggnog last night and OF COURSE I didn't have any in the house so I started looking online for some healthy recipes and what did I find?  Believe it or not....NOTHING! Not one healthy Eggnog recipe I would consider Bellyfit.  So I decided to create my own and to my surprise.....SCORE!!! It's absolutely delicious and the kids LOVE it too (double SCORE).  Cheers! :)

Bellyfit Eggnog

4 Eggs
1/2 cup of coconut sugar or 2 squirts stevia
3 cups Pacific Brand Hemp Milk
1 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
pinch of himalayan sea salt
1 cup organic coconut milk
1-2 oz bourbon, cognac, or brandy, to taste (optional) 
1.2 oz. rum, to taste (optional)
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1. In a large bowl, or in the Vitamix on the lowest setting, beat the eggs and sugar until fluffy. Set aside.

2. In a saucepan over low/medium heat, combine the hemp milk, nutmeg, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt.  Heat until steaming, stirring occasionally.  Do not it boil! 

3. Slowly temper the egg with the hot milk mixture over the egg yolks.  To do this, carefully pour the hot milk mixture over the egg mixture while whisking continuously to keep the eggs from scrambling.  Once mixed return the mixture to the saucepan.

4.Cook over medium-low heat until the mixture begins to thicken slightly, stirring constantly and scraping the bottom of the pan to prevent scorching. Do not let it boil!

5. Remove from the heat and and stir in coconut milk, vanilla extract, and liquors (if using).  

6. Chill in the fridge for at least a couple of hours, or overnight, before serving.   Stir well and serve. :) 

Prepare yourself for something creamy and dreamy!
