How To Make Eggless Eggnog That is So Creamy You Won't Even Miss the Eggs


There is just something about putting raw eggs into homemade eggnog that just, um, bugs me. Well, honestly, makes me super nervous. Why?? Because of a little thing called Salmonella. ( I am a nervous Nelly. Ask my kids.

And even though there is always the option to buy eggnog at the store that has been pasteurized and all, making healthy eggnog from scratch at home is just more fun and Christmasy to me.

But I always use an eggless eggnog recipe because of the aforementioned fear I have of Salmonella. Plus, they are so much easier and healthier to make than traditional recipes with eggs, and every bit as creamy and delicious. So it is a win-win all the way.
