Why This Keto Eggnog Custard Is About To Become Your Favorite Holiday Treat

  • Low Carb - only 2 carbs per serving
  • Delicious - your favorite holiday flavors without the carbs
  • Gluten Free - totally allergy-friendly
  • Vegetarian - a great treat for a healthy lifestyle

For some, the holiday season can be summed up with one word: Eggnog. Some people aren't a fan, others absolutely love it, but pretty much everyone can agree that it's one of the most popular holiday beverages out there.

And for those of us who love it, we buy up pretty much every eggnog flavored treat and dessert while they're available. If you're one of those people, you're sure to love myKeto Eggnog!

Keto and eggnog are probably two words you never expected to see together, but I assure you that thisKeto Eggnog Custard will not disappoint. This custard gives you the full eggnog experience without the traditional carby-ness of eggnog.

It's all the seasonal deliciousness you've come to love without any of the guilt. It's also low in sugar, gluten-free and vegetarian.

I mean, come on! Does it get better than that?

Actually, yes.

Because that's not even the best part of thisKeto Eggnog Custard recipe. This recipe takes only 5 simple ingredients to make and it's made quickly and easily right in your microwave--yes, a microwave.

If you do any level of cooking on a regular basis you are likely to already have all of the ingredients already on hand. This recipe is a simple as throwing all of the ingredients into a blender and then cooking them in the microwave for a few minutes.

With all the crazy hustle and bustle of the holiday season, why should your desserts add any stress to your life?

What Is Eggnog?

Eggnog is traditionally a drink that is enjoyed during the holiday season that is very rich. It is dairy-based and generally made with cream, sugar, and eggs.

Since this is a Keto eggnog, we're going to switch it up a little bit to keep it low carb.

Is It A Keto Eggnog? Or Is It A Keto Custard?

Both. Either.

In my typical #ruthlessefficiency fashion, I'm giving you one recipe that can either be eggnog or a creme anglaise type of pourable custard.

If you cook it according to the directions I provide, you will have eggnog. If you use a thermometer and continue to cook to 185F you will have a custard--an eggnog flavored custard, that incidentally, is to die for.

Ingredients You'll Need

Believe it or not, you only need FIVE ingredients to make a tasty holiday dessert or drink! Most of them will be kitchen staples if you're used to eating low carb. Even if you're not, Truvia is the only "special" ingredient you'll need to grab for this.

Even if you're not eating low carb, you'll still love the flavors of this dish. Don't want to grab a sugar substitute? You can use regular sugar (in a smaller amount).

How To Make Keto Eggnog Custard

  1. In a blender on low speed, blend together eggs, half and half, whipping cream, Truvia and ground nutmeg, taking care to not whip air into the mixture.
  2. Pour mixture into a 6-cup microwave-safe bowl, preferably a see-through glass bowl to keep an eye on it.
  3. Cook in your microwave at 50% power. This 50% thing is REALLY IMPORTANT. Do not use at full power unless you want scrambled eggs in your custard (ask me how I know). Stir thoroughly.
  4. Continue to cook at 50% power for an additional 3-4 minutes. Stir well.
  5. Serve either hot or cold.

How To Make It On The Stovetop

I know not everyone has a microwave or likes to use one. So, if you're one of those people, there's no need to skip this recipe.

If you have a candy thermometer or any other probe thermometer, you can easily make this on the stovetop.

  1. Add the ingredients to a saucepan as you would if you were to make it in the microwave.
  2. Turn on the burner to low heat and warm until it reaches a temperature of 185F
  3. Remove from heat, garnish with additional nutmeg and enjoy!

Tips And Tricks

  • If you’d like to have a crème anglaise or pourable custard consistency, use a thermometer and cook the mixture until it reaches about 185F. Be sure to stir every 30 secondsafter the initial 7-8 minute cook cycle.
  • If you find a little egg curdling has occurred, don’t worry. Just use a whisk and blend gently while the mix is still hot and you should have a smooth eggnog.
