An Easy, Sugar-Free Eggnog Recipe!

Sugar-free eggnog

Store-bought eggnog is a delicious holiday treat, but unfortunately it contains an incredible amount of sugar and other additives, so is not allowed on the Candida diet.

What if you love the creamy taste of eggnog, but you’re worried that drinking it over the Christmas season will ruin your Candida diet? If so, don’t worry… here is a really easy to make a delicious eggnog recipe without adding any sugar at all! The best part is that it’s actually a great Candida-fighting drink that can be enjoyed at any time of year.

This guilt-free eggnog recipe contains no sugar and no dairy. Even better, it contains a couple of natural antifungal foods (coconut milk and cinnamon) which can help to beat a Candida overgrowth and rebalance your gut flora. It’s a healthy way to get the taste of Christmas without the guilt of those empty calories and added sugars. Alcohol is obviously optional but wouldn’t be advised in the initial stages of the Candida diet.

This recipe only takes a few minutes to prepare and tastes just as good as the real thing. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

If you’re concerned about the risk of salmonella or other food-borne illness, simply dip the eggs in boiling water for 30 seconds. This will effectively sanitize the eggs, if they have been properly refrigerated.

    Hi Lisa:

    I love eggnog but have chosen not to purchase it due to all the added ingredients. Thanks so much for this recipe and I can’t wait to give it a try. However, I was wondering what size can (oz size) of coconut milk you use since there are different sizes. I make my own coconut milk so will need to know how many ounces or cups to use.

    1. Use a 12 oz can of coconut milk. We just added that extra detail to the recipe, thanks!

    THis looks wonderful and I have been craving egg nog! Do you have a good hot cocoa recipe as well? Thank you!!

  5. Fiona says:

    Hi – Looks like a fantastic recipe that I will be trying! However, I’m located in Australia & we don’t have packets of stevia – could you let me know how many tsp or grams 2 packets equates to – TIA.

    1. Hi Fiona, it really depends on which stevia you buy and how concentrated it is! You can always start with a small amount and then add to the mixture as needed.

  6. Al Trace says:

    Leave out eggs and you’ll have a better nog!

    1. Dulce Alvarado says:

      i’m thinking about replacing the egg with applesauce or banana instead.

  7. Sandi says:

    Looks amazing. Can’t wait to try it. Wondering how long it will last in the fridge?

    Sugar played an important harmful role in my tooth decay. I used to eat a lot of chocolates and other sweet items, that made cavities in my teeth. For 2 weeks I experienced severe pain because of these cavities that’s why I decided to meet a dentist. A dentist treated me and now I am perfectly fine. Now I reduced the amount of sugar in food so that I can live healthy. So I will surely gonna try this sugar free eggnog recipe. Thank you for posting!!

    Wow! Dreamy, creamy goodness! What a decadent dessert. I highly recommend this treat. I have been drinking herbal teas and water with lemon or lime for so long. This drink fills the craving for cool, creamy richness (when all your family members are chowing down bowls of ice cream).

  12. Sara says:

    How long can I keep this drink refrigirated for? Thanks!

    1. Lisa Richards says:

      I imagine it should be OK for at least 24 hours.
