Low Calorie Dairy-Free Eggnog


This recipe was submitted by Keith for the Go Dairy Free / ZenSoy Recipe Contest in January 2011. Keith says, “You will find this is a light flavored eggnog. Yes it does mix with rum!”

The recipe is dairy-free, but still uses the richness of an egg for that true eggnog taste. If you confuse eggs with dairy, you’re not alone! See this pos: Are Eggs Dairy?

Since this light recipe does use an egg, it doesn’t require other thickeners, so it is dairy-free and gluten-free!

    I’m pretty sure if it uses an egg, it’s not EGG-FREE 😉
