Recipe Notes

The nutritional values were calculated for a sugar-free drink using monk fruit. 
How to Store
This dairy-free eggnog will keep well in the fridge for up to 4 days. You may need to blend or whisk it well to incorporate milk solids before serving. Coconut milk can solidify quickly when chilled.
Unless you intend to make an eggnog ice cream, freezing is not recommended; otherwise, the milk will separate when thawed. A solution would be to blend the thawed mixture in the blender again.
