Guuuyyysss…. this recipe is everything! 

I’ve officially switched into holiday mode. I love seeing the strings of twinkling lights, a little more sparkle on outfits and my calendar filling up with get-togethers to see family and friends. 

You know what else I enjoy? Eggnog! That creamy deliciousness makes an appearance for such a short amount of time so I make sure to get my fair share.   

Growing up in a Portuguese home, Eggnog was never part of our family tradition. As I got older and spent the holidays with the families of my friends, I was introduced to it and quickly became a fan.

Fast forward a few years, it was pretty obvious that Eggnog did not fit into my new way of living.  I still wanted to enjoy it, but on my healthy terms! I didn’t want to give it up but I also didn’t want all of the added sugar, heavy cream and raw eggs from traditional recipes.

What I have come up with is this creamy, spiced blend that is perfect to sip on in front of a cozy fire, with friends at a holiday gathering or even as a base for a morning latte.

The best way to enjoy it is as a creamer for your coffee. Hope you like it as much as I do!
