- 2 eggs
- ¾ cup Heavy Whipping Cream

👩🏿🍳How to make the Eggnog:
1.) Put everything in a blender and blitz on high until fully combined and thickened.
Traditionally, before blenders were a common household item, the egg yolks and whites were whipped separately. As a former bartender I can tell you that this just isn't necessary anymore.
You can still do it this way if you like but it's time consuming.
2.) Pour over ice or chill. If you chill: Whisk to incorporate any ingredients that have separated before serving.
There are some who say that this drink needs to be chilled before serving. It's not necessary though. Just pour it over rocks and enjoy.

📋Tips & FAQ's:
Can I make this drink ahead of time?
Sort of. You can make this drink several hours ahead of consumption but it should all be consumed the same day that you make it.
If you don't think you will be able to drink that much half the recipe. If you choose to pasteurize your eggnog it can last 2-3 days chilled below 40F.
No, this drink can not be frozen for later.
No one is going to ask this question you say?
They might. Lots of low carb dieters like to freeze everything for later. I blame this on the "meal prep" craze from yesteryear.
How do I pasteurize the Low Carb Eggnog?
If you would like to "cook" the eggs simply pour the finished eggnog (minus the booze) into a pan and heat through while whisking constantly.
Do not let it boil and turn into scrambled eggs. You only need to get the mixture to 140F for three minutes to be completely safe from salmonella. If you get it hotter you'll have eggnog custard.
Still good, but not what you're trying to make right?....Ooooh, that gives me ideas lol.
If you are adding alcohol, add it after the heat is off so that your booze doesn't evaporate.
I think that's it for the Low Carb Eggnog Recipe!
