Eggnog is wonderful but raw eggnog is even better. Made with whole raw milk, you get all the health benefits of probiotic bacteria and enzymes.
Eggnog, if you're not familiar, is a sweetened holiday beverage made with milk and cream, sugar, eggs, and optional liquor — usually brandy, rum, or Bourbon. My favorite thing to add is Amaretto, a sweet Italian liqueur made from almonds.
Eggnog came to America from Europe in the 1800s. Nowadays, most people do not make their own eggnog, and instead buy it in grocery stores in the dairy aisle. Commercial eggnog is typically made with poor quality ingredients, ranging from “modified milk ingredients” instead of milk to all sorts of fillers and gums to produce a thicker beverage.
This recipe uses raw, grass-fed milk and cream, and raw honey or maple syrup in place of refined white sugar. It is super easy to make, and does not take more than a minute or two. Eggnog is a great way to get in a lot of extra raw dairy and high-quality saturated fats from the raw cream, as well as raw egg yolks during the winter season.
And if you add a little booze, it makes wrapping presents a whole lot more fun.
Milk, raw, grass-fed, organic (2 cups)
Cream, ideally organic, raw & from grass-fed cows, at the very least not ultrapasteurized (2 cups)
Large egg yolks (pastured or at least free-range organic) (8)
Raw honey or Grade B maple syrup (1/4 cup)
Vanilla extract, organic if possible and make sure to avoid ‘artificial vanillin' (1 tsp) — (click here for recipe for homemade vanilla extract)
Freshly grated nutmeg (you can also use dried ground nutmeg but the flavor of fresh is vastly superior)
Optional: Amaretto, Bourbon, brandy or rum to taste
Raw Eggnog: Equipment
Nutmeg grinder, if using fresh nutmeg
Blender or food processor
Raw Eggnog: Directions
1. Blend the milk, cream, eggs, honey or maple syrup and vanilla extract, and optional alcohol in blender or food processor until smooth. Note: If using Amaretto, you can skip the honey or maple syrup, or just use less sweetener, as Amaretto is very sweet.
2. Pour into glasses.
3. Grate fresh nutmeg over each glass.

Support Me & My Work
I have been blogging about real food, alternative health, and about the dangers of vaccines and Big Pharma since 2007. As a result, the cabal has punished me severely financially via the IRS, FTC, hacks, etc. I lost my blog network in 2014 which I now believe was an orchestrated attack. Last summer, I lost 80% of my income from my blog due to the Google algorithm change that impacted almost all health bloggers including Dr. Mercola.I'm now working to build my blog and YouTube channel and I appreciate all the support from my fans. Once I can start making more money, I will be able to hire some help and childcare, so I can create more content. Thank you for any help you can offer. Here are some ways you can support me as a content creator and journalist:
- Support me on Patreon (I'm still setting up the bonuses from the tiers but you can start donating now).
- Buy my shampoo or skincare. Want more info? Read my review of MONAT. Or click here to learn how to order MONAT and save the most money. Got questions? Send me an email at email@example.com with any questions or if you need help placing an order.
- Send me a donation via Paypal: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Enroll in my online course: Online Marketing Simplified. Updates to the course are temporarily on hold so I can cover Q -- but I will be back to adding course lessons as soon as the storm is over and we are out of quarantine -- any week now!
- If you can't help financially, it's OK! You can help by sharing my content. Share my blog posts, YouTube videos, and Facebook & Instagram posts, and leave me comments. Sharing helps get my work seen -- and liking and commenting helps boost the content in the search engine algorithms.
