    Happy to find this Keto Eggnog recipe. I like to serve eggnog at the holiday gathering at Christmas and this will work well for my Keto friends. It was not too hard to put together last night when I tried it and it tastes very good. I am glad it will store in the refrigerator for three days. I had another serving today and it tastes even better after sitting in the refrigerator overnight.

    I tried this Keto Eggnog recipe and found the eggnog to be a very good substitute for the traditional store bought kind. I added bourbon and topped it with your Keto whipped cream. I plan on making this several times this December. Your photo with the cinnamon stick looks nice so I will be picking up some cinnamon sticks to make the eggnog look lovely at my holiday party. Thanks!

    I tried your Keto Eggnog recipe last night. It is a great substitute for the traditional eggnog. This eggnog recipe will be my go-to this season. I tried a different recipe first but found your version easier to put together and a better taste. Thanks.

    Absolutely delicious! I made two versions of this recipe, one with the bourbon and one without (for the kids). Adults and children alike enjoyed this greatly.
