How about a frozen eggnog recipe? A SUGAR FREE, protein packed, super fast to whiz together *scrump-diddli-icious* frozen breakfast treat is on tap this Trim Healthy Tuesday. Last week’s Holiday Sweets Cookbook Review & giveaway got me all ready for holiday goodies.
Speaking of which, the Sweeter Side of Candida cookbook is on sale at 20% off through November 21st with the code GWENSNEST. (my affiliate link) The buckeyes are amazing.
With high temps still in the upper 60’s here this is the perfect way to indulge in the flavors of the season without padding my derriere. But hey…even if your temps are in the teens, you can still enjoy this yummy frozen eggnog recipe treat in front of the fireplace.
In the past, I never bothered with making real egg nog, because of all of the steps involving pasteurizing or heating the eggs, so imagine my DELIGHT at discovering pre-pasteurized egg whites in the carton. The base of this recipe is a “Keep Me On Plan” milkshake that my brilliant sister came up with and shared with me. I love it because it’s quick, versatile, and filling, and there’s no bloated and regrettable sugar crash afterward.
Let’s get straight to the printable so you can go enjoy this frosty treat…don’t miss the dairy free, egg free, and latte versions in the notes!
Sugar Free Frozen Eggnog Recipe
- ½ c. cottage cheese (2% Daisy is my fave)
- 1½- 2 c. ice
- 1 c. unsweetened almond milk
- ⅓ c. pasteurized egg white from a carton
or 1 whole pastured egg* if you're so inclined (for S version)
- ¼ c. cream (for S version)
- 1½ tsp. vanilla extract
- ¼ tsp. rum extract, optional
- pinch of salt
- 1 T Erythritol or stevia to taste, or 1 T. xylitol or Truvia
- ¼ tsp. nutmeg
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, optional
- Add all to the blender, and blend until smooth & creamy.
- For an S version, do not omit cream.
- Taste and adjust sweetness and flavorings to your liking.
- Garnish with a sprinkle of nutmeg & enjoy!
*Whole or un-pasteurized egg is optional and at your discretion.
Dairy Free: Omit cottage cheese, cream, and almond milk, and use coconut milk instead. You may increase eggs to 2 for added protein & flavor if desired.
Egg Free: (Yes! Can you believe it!) Omit egg, and add 2-3 small dashes of gluccie as you're blending to give it more froth
Frozen Egg Nog Latte: Sub 1 cup cold coffee for almond milk.

Thank you so much for your blog and all the time you put into it. You have really helped me as I am still feeling new to THM. (5wks) It is so nice to have someone more experienced who is willing to share what they have learned with us newbies. Have a wonderful day and may God bless you and yours.
Thank you, Marcella! It gets easier & easier as you go with THM. I’m so happy to share what I’ve learned. 🙂
Just made the Egg Nog smoothie! Yum! I did FP and added a little gluc to increase the creaminess. Looking forward to trying it S. thanks!!
I have been making an Egg Nog Recipe I found on THM Pinterest, but it you have to cook the yolk in a double boiler…I don’t always have time for that. This recipe of yours looks yummy and easy…can’t wait to try it.
Thank you for all the work you put into your blog. I always look forward to Trim Healthy Tuesday.
quick question…(this was delicious, BTW!)
If I substitute half and half (4.5 g fat/1 carb) for the cream, it would still be FP, correct?
*barely* but yes. 🙂
Wait..you’d need to consider the fat in the almond milk & the cottage cheese too. So a light S.
Hope you enjoy it! 🙂 And I love getting to share here each Tuesday. 🙂

Sipping on the eggnog right now. DELISH! Made it S style, but I think I’ll make an FP version and take it to work tomorrow. YUM…
Um! WOW! That Frozen Eggnog was AMAZING! Yeah, might have to do that every day through the holiday’s to keep me from eating things I shouldn’t. My kids LOVED it too…I had to leave the room so they would leave me and it alone 😉
Glad you guys are enjoying it! 🙂
Oh, wow! This was so good. My husband loves eggnog and he said this was delicious. Even my 14 yr old son who doesn’t want to eat “any of that weird THM stuff” liked it. I am so glad that we are getting away from sugar slowly and finding that food can still taste good. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
Lisa G says
Can I replace the egg with meringue powder, or does it still taste like eggnog without the egg?
Gwen Brown says
I’d stick with the pasteurized carton eggs…haven’t tried the powder, but I think it’s far pricier and I’m not crazy about the health effects of spray drying on eggs.
Love eggnog and this is wonderful and on plan! I do sometimes add a splash of butter extract too! Thanks!!
lynn ellis says
Why is the eggnog recipe called frozen? I Must have missed something ?
Nikki Stone (Business) says
This was amazing!!! I added a shot of the real deal since I didn’t have rum flavoring…sooo decadent, even as FP!!!
Wondering how it would be if I added a little okra!?
Gwen Brown says
Did you try it? What did you think? 🙂
Sara Moyer says
Gwen, thank you so much for this recipe. I used it today to make a copycat Starbucks eggnog latte. It was delicious!
Questions about doing this dairy-free: do you mean coconut milk from a can (much thicker) or from a carton? Would I use the coconut milk to replace the amounts of the cottage cheese and cream as well as the almond milk, for a total of 1 and 3/4 cup coconut milk? Thanks!
Gwen Brown says
I would use the canned coconut milk as a sub for the cottage cheese. If you want to lighten it up, use part (thick) canned coconut, and part carton coconut.
Such a weird question but can I lightly cook my egg? I don’t have pasteurize on hand. Just regular eggs.
Gwen Brown says
I have never tried pasteurizing my own eggs…I bet there are instructions to do so without it turning into a solid? If it were heated until it began to cook and solidify, I don’t think the results would be palatable texture wise.
