“I love eggnog but can't have the dairy. Then it occurred to me that it would be great made with coconut milk - which is my milk substitute of choice. I couln't find a recipe here that just called for coconut milk, so I searched the web where I found many sites posting such a recipe as all of the sites that I looked at posted the same recipe, I am not crediting where it came from. I also like this recipe because everything gets cooked. I haven't tried it yet because I wanted to post it on here so I could easily calculate the ingredients for a smaller batch as it is just for me. Prep time is estimated - total time includes chilling time.”
