Dairy-Free Eggnog (non-alcoholic)

The holidays are coming upon us quickly and it's time to start dreaming about wonderful, traditional holiday meals:) But for those on the GAPS diet or with other dietary restrictions, it's sometimes difficult to get as excited as in past years, knowing that you will be missing goodies and treats you used to love. This season, though, there's no need to miss holiday treats because I've created a healthy, delicious, dairy-free eggnog that everyone will love!

Coconut milk gives this eggnog the same rich and creamy texture as any classic holiday drink, but adds a delightful hint of sweet coconut. Add a little nutmeg and a touch of cloves and that's all you need for a wonderful, traditional, GAPS-approved eggnog.

And if dairy isn't a problem for you, go ahead and add some whey for extra nutrients, sub in some kefir, or just go ahead and use home-cultured cream!
