Paleo Eggnog

Eggnog has its special place on the Christmas table (and in my heart). It’s highly addictive and incredibly tasty + it warms up your senses in a way no other beverage can. 

PS: You can add rum, cognac or bourbon to taste, because after all, it’s that time of the year when we are allowed to treat ourselves. Adding alcohol may make the recipe not-as-healthy-as-it-should-be, but it’s okay, as long as you enjoy it.
