How would you fine people make egg nog diabetic friendly? I’m inquiring as I’m diabetic myself & I have always liked the non-alcoholic version of egg nog during the holidays myself.

    Milk itself contains a fair amount of sugars. You could make eggnog less unfriendly by using an artificial sweetener. – MaxW Nov 18 '17 at 17:17

Eggnog can be easily adjusted for diabetics by removing as many carbs as possible. I recommend using heavy whipping cream and unsweetened almond milk, both of which have 1 or fewer net grams of carbs per serving. For a sweetener, I recommend using erythritol (or the brand name Swerve), as that is the only sweetener that I have come across that has no effects on insulin, blood sugar, or digestion. Here's a low carb eggnog recipe that only amounts to <0.5 g net carbs per serving (2/3 cup).

  • The recipe looks great! – Abraham Ray Nov 21 '17 at 19:29
