Once you've tried this Eggnog Custard it's sure to become a holiday classic in your home! It's low carb, only 5 ingredients and made in your microwave!
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup half and half
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/4 cup Truvia
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
In a blender container on low speed, blend together eggs, half and half, whipping cream, truvia and ground nutmeg, taking care to not whip air into the mixture.
Pour mixture into a 6-cup microwave safe bowl, preferably a see-through glass bowl that you can monitor.
Cook at 50% power for 4 minutes. This 50% thing is REALLY IMPORTANT. Do not use at full power unless you want scrambled eggs in your custard (ask me how I know). Stir thoroughly.
Continue to cook at 50% power for an additional 3-4 minutes. Stir well.
Serve either hot or cold.
If you’d like to have a crème anglaise or pourable custard consistency, use a thermometer and cook the mixture until it reaches about 185F. Be sure to stir every 30 seconds after the initial 7-8 minute cook cycle.
if you find a little egg curdling has occurred, don’t worry. Just use a whisk and blend gently while the mix is still hot and you should have a smooth eggnog.
