Lactose Free Eggnog to Treat Your Holiday Guests

It might be the season to eat, drink and be merry but if you have lactose intolerance, it can be difficult to navigate buffet tables full of butter, milk, cream and cheese.

Lactose intolerance is difficult to diagnose because it has a lot of the same symptoms as milk allergies. However, while a milk allergy causes the body to react quickly, lactose intolerance is the impaired ability to digest lactose, or milk sugar, over time.

Green Valley Organics offers a line of lactose free yogurts and kefirs that you can use in some of your favorite recipes. And holiday eggnog? Well, there is no reason to miss out if you’re skipping dairy.

Green Valley Organics Lactose Free Holiday Eggnog

Eggnog is a rich holiday treat. This delicious recipe is a great variation on the classic recipe made with creamy, lactose free kefir. Safe for anyone to drink because the eggs are cooked, whip up a batch and make someone’s day this holiday!


  • 1 1/2 cups Green Valley Organics Lactose Free Plain Kefir
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp Bourbon Vanilla
  • 3 eggs

Whip eggs. Mix the kefir, sugar, vanilla and eggs in a heavy sauce pan over medium-low heat. Cook for about 15 minutes, stirring often, until the mixture coats a metal spoon. Pour mixture into a glass bowl. Set the bowl in a larger bowl filled with ice. Put in refrigerator for 24 hours.

Put eggnog in festive glasses (of course!). Garnish with cinnamon or a bit more nutmeg on top and a candy cane.
