Recipe: Skinny Eggnog

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Yield: 6 servings
Serving size: ½ cup


  • 2½ cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg white
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • cinnamon, to taste
  • nutmeg, to taste


  1. Heat a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the almond milk and vanilla, and heat until it almost simmers (do not bring to a boil.).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg white, sugar, and cornstarch until frothy.
  3. Temper the eggs into the heated almond milk. To do this, add about ¼ cup of the almond milk to the egg mixture, whisking quickly. Add another ¼ cup, and whisk again. Tempering allows both liquids to come to the same temperature before combining them, so the eggs do not curdle.
  4. Add the cooled-down egg mixture to the almond milk, and whisk to combine. Stir frequently until it begins to thicken, about 6-8 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg, to taste.
  6. Serve warm or chilled and top with optional whipped topping as desired.
