  1. Combine the coconut milk and the sugar in a saucepan and scald over medium heat.
  2. Beat the egg yolks with the vanilla. Beat in 1/2 cup of the scalded mixture into the egg yolks. Then whisk all the egg yolk mixture into the scalded mixture. Stirring mixture constantly, cook over low heat until mixture reaches a temperature of 160 degrees F (71 degrees C). The mixture should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. DO NOT BOIL.
  3. Strain the eggnog into a bowl. Stir in the rum and let cool to room temperature. Place plastic wrap on the surface and refrigerate until well chilled. Once chilled serve with nutmeg sprinkled on top.

I use this eggnog as a substitue for the traditional one made with milk products. I am lactose intollerant. Make sure you use unsweetened coconut milk. A very good eggnog!

This is an awsome tasting drink!!!!

I followed the instructions as closely as possible, but mine didn't turn out. It had a grainy taste (probably from the coconut). I wouldn't try it again.

make sure you use coconut milk, because if you use shredded coconut, like the review above, it will come out grainy...
