Here's a good and simple recipe for eggnog. It does use raw eggs - the healthiest way to eat them. If you are hesitant to use raw eggs because of foodborne illness, you should know that eggs that are organic and pastured are far less likely to contain pathogens (illness-causing bacteria). Also, if you raise chickens sustainably/organically for eggs, it will be unlikely that the eggs would ever be contaminated.
In addition, it's a good practice to clean the outside of the egg with an efficient pathogen-killing cleaner to help prevent foodborne illness. I keep one spray bottle filled with full-strength hydrogen peroxide and another with full-strength white vinegar. To clean the outside of an egg, spray first with either the vinegar or peroxide and then spray again with the other solution. Wipe with a clean paper towel and use as directed in the recipe below:
4 cups of milk
2 cups half and half
6 eggs, well beaten
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup pure organic maple syrup
4 teaspoons stevia
dash of salt
8 ice cubes
1.Place ingredients in a blender.
2. Blend until completely combined.
3. Serve with extra nutmeg sprinkled on top.
