  1. 6 organic eggs*
    3 tablespoons sugar
    1/4 cup agave nectar
    1 1/2 teaspoons nutmeg
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
    2 1/2 cups whole, or low-fat evaporated milk (whole milk makes a thicker consistency)
    3/4c plain low-fat kefir
    1 teaspoon rum extract


    1. Beat eggs until fluffy.
    2. Add sugar, agave, nutmeg, milk, vanilla, kefir, and rum extract.
    3. Mix, Chill and serve.

    *Raw eggs are sometimes considered an unsafe food. Most commercial eggnogs are pasteurized. Making eggnog with pasteurized eggs, egg substitute, or without raw eggs are all options.

    If you do not feel comfortable using raw eggs follow these instructions:

    Beat the eggs with the sugar and agave, add the evaporated milk, pour into a heavy-bottom sauce pot and heat slowly. When the mixture is thick enough to coat a spoon, remove from heat and add spice and extracts, then add kefir. Chill in the refrigerator before serving.
