Notes
I have to say I am so thrilled how easy and delicious this eggnog is! The secret ingredients are the vanilla bean, maple extract and syrup with the stevia. I found that 3 tbsp. of maple syrup was perfect because the stevia enhanced the caramel sweetness. If you need to stay away from sugar you can use just the stevia and the maple extract but you will need to add a few more dashes of stevia. Also, if your nog gets to thick after refrigerating it you can add more milk to thin it out. Please use organic and grass-fed milk as well as organic pasture raised eggs.
