Kefir Eggnog


The winter holiday season is about family, friends, and of course food. One of the traditional holiday beverages is eggnog. It is in every grocery store come November and it beckons you with its nostalgic memories of a thick, rich, sweet holiday beverage.

You can make eggnog at home, with the naturally occurring probiotics and enzymes inherent in the main ingredients: fresh milk, raw honey, egg yolks, and in this recipe, milk kefir.

Adding milk kefir to your fresh milk will give you a health boost and give your eggnog a very slight tang. It’s a great way to get some probiotics into your favorite holiday beverage!


  • 1 cup dairy kefir
  • 3 cups fresh milk, cow or goat
  • 4 egg yolks, from pastured chickens
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3-4 tablespoons raw honey or maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg, plus more for serving


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Alternatively, combine all ingredients in a quart jar, tightly seal the lid, and shake until well combined.
  2. Chill and serve with additional ground nutmeg and whipped cream if desired.

Note: Please exercise caution when consuming raw eggs or products made with raw eggs.
