I decided to make a dairy free version, that still has that egg noggy taste! It's lighter and not as sweet but the flavour is so good you don't need a lot of sweet anyways. I was inspired by Rule of Yum, a youtube channel run by Ken who focuses on low carb Paleo friendly eats.
I've posted about Almond Breeze's coconut/almond milk before, it is my absolute favourite type of non dairy milk, it's richer than almond milk but lighter than actual coconut milk. If you haven't tried it definitely do it works in place of any non-dairy milk.
If you're weary about consuming raw eggs, guess what there's an alternative!.........Bananas! They have to be frozen though and thawed slightly. In this recipe you can replace 4 egg yolks with 2 small frozen bananas, or 1 1/2 large frozen bananas.
3 cups sweetened coconut/almond milk
4 egg yolks
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp evaporated cane juice (to taste)
Pinch of salt
Just treat this like a smoothie recipe, combine all ingredients in a blender, blend on low for a few minutes and voila! You can add your alcohol (brandy/sherry) after blending too.
