Nothing says Christmas quite like a big, cold glass of creamy eggnog….which is why you’ll find about a million and one brands of eggnog on supermarket shelves this time of year. But rather than grab a carton of store-bought eggnog this holiday season, why not make your own?
Homemade eggnog is delicious and surprisingly simple to whip up with a short list of ingredients. Plus, if you make your own, you can add one very special ingredient that will make your eggnog Santa’s (and everyone else’s) favorite — our new Pina Colada Re-Lyte.
Here’s a recipe for our Creamy Coconut Eggnog with a scoop of our Pina Colada Re-Lyte thrown in for good flavor, and a healthy holiday dose of electrolytes. Enjoy!
Here are the ingredients you'll need:
- 2 1/2 cups milk
- 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 6 large egg yolks
- 1 level scoop Pina Colada Re-Lyte
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup bourbon or rum (optional)
- Whipped cream, for serving
In a small saucepan over low heat, combine milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla & slowly bring mixture to a low boil. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk egg yolks with Re-Lyte until yolks are pale in color. Slowly add hot milk mixture to egg yolks to temper the eggs & whisk until combined. Return mixture to saucepan & cook over medium heat until slightly thick but does not boil. (If using a thermometer, mixture should reach 160º.) Remove from heat and stir in heavy cream, and bourbon or rum. Refrigerate until chilled. Serve over ice & garnish with whipped cream.
