This Chai Eggnog recipe is lightened up a bit, quick and easy to prepare, and simmered with vanilla and chai tea bags for an extra delicious kick. Feel free to spike your eggnog with a pour of bourbon, rum or brandy if you’d like.
- Combine coconut milk, almond milk, egg yolks, maple syrup, cinnamon and salt in a large saucepan. Whisk vigorously for 1 minute until completely combined and slightly frothy.
- Heat over medium heat until the mixture just barely reaches a simmer (tiny bubbles popping up), stirring occasionally so that the eggs do not cook on the bottom of the pan. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add the tea bags and simmer for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove and discard the tea bags. Stir in the vanilla until combined. Taste, and add extra maple syrup to sweeten, if desired. And if you would like to spike your eggnog, I recommend adding 1.5 ounces of bourbon, rum, or brandy per cup of eggnog.
- Transfer to a heat-safe container and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Serve chilled.
