Healthy Homemade EGGNOG!

4 egg yolks
3 cups of almond milk, coconut milk, or a combination
(I like 2 cups almond milk & 1 cup full fat coconut millk)
1/4 cup pure maple syrup (or can use another safe sweetener)
*I acutally added about a TBS more maple syrup to make it a touch sweeter. You can taste test it before you add the eggs to decide how sweet you want it. :)
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon

Whisk egg yolks in a small bowl and set aside.
Combine almond/coconut milk, maple syrup, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon in a medium saucepan.  Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring pretty consistently. Reduce heat to low.  Add the hot liquid to the egg yolks a little bit at a time to temper the eggs, whisking continuously, until you've added about 1 cup of the hot mixture to the yolks.  Then pour the egg mixture into the pot.
Increase heat to medium.  Whisk while simmering for 4-5 minutes.
Remove from heat. Serve hot immediately OR pour into a covered container and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.  Mmmmm...Let me know if you try it!
