  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 whole eggs separated
  • 2 cups milk skim or 1%
  • 2 oranges zested
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup or coconut palm sugar, or 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg freshly grated or ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 shots white rum more or less to taste, optional


  • In a bowl, whisk together eggs yolks until they lighten in color, set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer and beat eggs whites until they form stiff peaks, set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan over low-heat, whisk together the milk, orange zest, sweetener, cinnamon and nutmeg, and cook for 5 to 8 minutes, until steaming but not simmering. Slowly pour the egg yolks into the spiced milk, while whisking continuously and heat 3-4 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and add vanilla and (optional) rum. Fold in egg whites, stir, pour into mugs and sprinkle with additional cinnamon or nutmeg.


If chilled Eggnog is preferred, allow to cool and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.
