  • 2 Cups Low Carb Milk
  • 2 Cups Heavy Cream
  • 3 Whole Cloves
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
  • 6 Egg Yolks
  • 3/4 Cups Sugar Alternative I used erythritol
  • 1 1/4 Cups Light Rum
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract


  • Combine low carb milk (2 cups), heavy cream (2 cups), whole cloves (3), ground cinnamon (1/2 teaspoon) and ground nutmeg (1/4 teaspoon) into a small saucepan and heat slowly to bring mixture to a boil.
  • Remove from heat as you prepare next step.
  • In a large bowl, combine the egg yolks (6) and sugar (3/4 cups) using an electric mixer until fluffy and the sweetener has dissolved.
  • Slowly add very little at a time of the milk mixture into the bowl of egg yolks while the electric mixer is running.
  • Once combined, pour contents of bowl into saucepan and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Don't allow this to boil.
  • Strain to remove cloves and place in the fridge to cool for at least an hour.
  • Pour in vanilla extract (1 1/2 teaspoons) and light rum (1 1/4 cups). Top with cinnamon and nutmeg and enjoy!


  • Lakanto, Swerve, or Erythritol. I stick to Lakanto and Swerve which are a 1:1 swap with traditional sugar. If using a different brand of Erythritol, keep in mind it's 70% as sweet as sugar, so you may need to add more to taste. 
  • Milk. I swap between unsweetened light almond or coconut milk.
  • The exact serving size for this keto eggnog will vary based on the size of your egg yolks and the amount you cook the liquid down. I was able to make 5 3/4 cups of eggnog with this recipe, which would mean a serving size is equal to about 1/2 cup.
  • Recipe Adapted from traditional Eggnog recipe on Allrecipes!
