Egg Nog - it's the holiday party staple.
Have you noticed that? I have. Throughout the endless rounds of holiday parties, there is one staple that I constantly see...
And it's usually the type poured from a carton.
Are you a fan?
Have you ever had real Egg Nog as compared to the stuff that comes in those tetra packs?
True Egg Nog is nothing like the overly sweetened processed Egg Nog you will find. It is creamy and delicious. (especially when it's spiked!)
Going Dairy Free and Sugar Free
However, with more and more of my clients looking for a dairy free and egg free alternative, and wanting to cut down on the amount of sugar they eat, I put together this delicious dairy alternative Egg Nog recipe.
