With sweet vanilla-laced nutmeg-spiced flavor, and rich creamy texture, this Eggnog Latte recipe is just as festive and delicious as what you’d find at a coffee shop. And bonus, it’s keto!
As far as holiday flavors go, eggnog is at the top of my list. It’s up there right along with gingerbread and anything with cranberries!
I enjoy eggnog so much I like to come up with different eggnog-inspired recipes so I’m not just left drinking my ‘nog. Muffins, pudding, and cookies are all fair game to be re-made into festive eggnog-flavored treats.
What Does Eggnog Taste Like?
Eggnog is a really unique flavor and to me it says Christmas! I think it tastes like a melted vanilla custard (egg-based ice cream) that’s scented with nutmeg.
Classic eggnog ingredients include:
- Nutmeg is traditional, but some recipes also add cinnamon
- A few recipes also use vanilla, which I love as an addition to eggnog
Does Eggnog Have Alcohol?
Eggnog itself doesn’t have alcohol. However, it’s common to add spirits to eggnog, such as rum, cognac, or brandy.
What Do To With Eggnog
- Add a splash to your morning oatmeal (it would be fantastic on top of Carrot Cake Oatmeal)
- Use it as the soaking liquid to make French toast
- Swap out milk for eggnog in recipes for cake, muffins, waffles, and pancakes. Note that eggnog will also add sweetness, so you may want to scale back a little on the added sweetener
- Make it into bread pudding (swap out half the milk in my Cinnamon Roll Bread Pudding recipe for eggnog)
- Combine eggnog and powdered sugar to make a glaze for cookies, cinnamon rolls, etc.
Can You Put Eggnog in Coffee?
Yes! If you enjoy a milk or cream and sugar in your coffee, simply skip all that and add a splash of eggnog. Or if you like a sweet coffee creamer, give it the nix and use eggnog instead.

- Instead of strong, hot brewed coffee, you can use 2 shots of espresso + 3/4 cup hot water.
- Instead of topping this with whipped cream, you can top it with foamed milk.
- If keeping this latte keto isn't a concern, you can stir in some actual eggnog! Omit the vanilla and stevia (you can keep the generous pinch of nutmeg if you want), and stir in 2 to 3 tablespoons of eggnog instead. then top with a dollop of whipped cream!
- Take a couple minutes to freshly grate your nutmeg because it makes all the difference in terms of flavor! I recommend using a microplane to grate whole nutmeg.
