Happy Monday Everyone.
Hope your preparation to Christmas is going well. Remember the greatest gift is being present. Take this time to be with friends and family, to share stories, make new memories and be present with loved ones. I find our lives are getting busier by the day, and we are finding less time to do the things that matter the most.
Slow down over this period, let the kids play, finish that book you have been meaning to, relax with friends and family and be sure to keep moving in some form – gentle walks through nature being one of the best to help with rest and digest 🙂
On to today’s post. Although our Christmas is a warm one, we still love making eggnog to get into the festive mood. Give our healthy delicious drink a go, make it in advance and drink it as a refreshing cold beverage otherwise make nearer the time and drink warm. We added grated dark chocolate to the top to add a little more deliciousness to it.
You will need;
3 free range egg yolks
1.5 cups coconut milk/cream
Dash of vanilla essence
1 T maple syrup (optional)
Nutmeg and cinnamon to taste
Whiskey (optional for some extra Xmas joy 😉
Mix 1 cup of milk of choice to pot along with egg yolks. Stir continuously over a low heat until it becomes thicker and coats the back of a spoon (do not turn heat up or stop stirring otherwise you may end up with scrambled eggs).
Once reached right consistency, put pot in cold water and add rest of milk, vanilla essence, maple syrup, nutmeg and cinnamon. Stir for a few minutes then put into 2x mugs. Drink straight away or put into fridge to thicken more.
