Dairy Free, Gluten Free Eggnog

**Read all the way to the end to get entered in a Christmas Giveaway!**

Since going dairy and gluten-free, one of the things I have really been missing from my holidays is Egg Nog. It was just one of those things that make it feel like the holidays. Of course, I also used to purchase the ready-made stuff in the market but if you decide to look at the side of the carton it will surprise you as to the crap that is in these festive holiday drinks. Not to mention the number of calories!

A 1/2 cup of Dean’s Egg Nog Holiday is 180 calories! It’s also filled with High Fructose Corn Syrup, Carrageenan, artificial colors, and flavoring. And if you are like me you can’t drink most store-bought egg nog because it contains milk. Check out EWG’s ratings on their page here.

So why not try making this homemade egg nog, you won’t believe how quick and easy it is to make this!

  • 2 cups Milk (I use Ripple)
  • 3 egg whites 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 drop Nutmeg Essential Oil*
  • 1 drop Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil*

Mix milk, egg whites, and honey in a blender Pour into a pot and cook for 15 minutes on a very low flame, take off heat, add in oils, and place in the fridge over night that’s it!

I used Ripple milk for mine but you can use any alternative milk (or real milk). I find the Ripple milk is a little thicker so it works better for this recipe. I also used essential oils in mine since they have such a great health benefit and add lots of flavors. If you don’t have essential oils you can use ground nutmeg and cinnamon.

*If you do use essential oils be sure they are ones that are labeled for internal use. If you are using Young Living Essential Oils just check for the vitally label, that means it’s safe to ingest. Find out more here.

Be sure to watch the pot when cooking, it can very quickly boil over. Not that, that happened to me or anything 🙂

You can also add some alcohol to make it fun! Some choices would be rum, brandy, bourbon, or sherry. Kahlúa is also a fun one.

It’s rumored that this was one of George Washington’s favorite drinks. They say he added whiskey, rum, and sherry to his, yes all three. I bet his parties were fun!

So give this recipe a try, I really like it better than the store-bought ones, it’s much less sweet.

What are your favorite holiday drinks? comment below, I’m always looking for new ones to serve as our signature drink at our holiday party.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas – a time for gratitude, togetherness, and celebration. The Christmas Blessings Giveaway is in its 8th year, and we are excited to once again bless not one family, but two, with some cash for the holiday season! I’m teaming up with an amazing group of bloggers with the hope of making this Christmas the best yet for TWO families by giving away $500 in Paypal cash to each family. What would you do with that money?!

While we wish we could bless many more families, we were able to come up with a big prize for TWO families – $500 each (delivered via Paypal) – that we pray will make a big difference in their lives this Christmas season – whether it’s to fulfill their kids’ Christmas wishes, pay off some bills, or to help build some savings, our prayer is that it helps to lessen any financial burden and/or fills a specific need.

There are lots of entry options in the Rafflecopter form below – the more you enter, the better your chance of winning!  I know it can seem tedious and time-consuming to go through all the entries, but isn’t a chance at $500 worth it? I think it is!  Plus, all of these amazing bloggers donated their own money toward the cash prizes, so this giveaway wouldn’t be possible without them.  I hope you’ll take the time to check out each one. Who knows, maybe you will find some new blogs to follow.

The giveaway will run from Monday, November 15th through Wednesday, November 24th (ends at 11:59pm EST). Winner will be notified by email shortly after the giveaway ends and will have 48 hours to respond to claim the prize or another winner will be drawn. You must have a Paypal account to win.  By entering this giveaway, you agree to be added to the email lists of the participating bloggers.  Please be sure to read the Rafflecopter terms and conditions upon entering.
