DIY: Healthier Eggnog


6 eggs
4 cups milk, divided
3/4 cup real maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream


1. In a large saucepan, whisk together eggs, 2 cups of milk, maple syrup, and sea salt. Cook and stir over medium heat until the mixture reaches 160°. Remove from heat. Stir in cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and the remaining two cups of milk. Mix well. Pour mixture into a jar, cover, and refrigerate overnight or until chilled.
2. Whip 3/4 cup cream until it is thick, but not yet “whipped cream”. Stir the thickened cream into the eggnog mixture. Serve in glasses. Top with additional whipped cream and sprinkles of nutmeg if desired.
