I have a love-hate relationship with eggnog. I love all the creaminess and those warming winter spices, but a warm thick beverage? I just don’t get it . It’s like drinking melted ice cream with booze in it, I can’t stomach it. Since we’re celebrating National Eggnog Month with #SundaySupper I thought I’d use my eggnog to make a pudding instead! Just added a touch of cornstarch to the eggnog base makes for a creamy and delicious pudding!

The Secret Ingredient:

The key to getting the eggnog flavor without all the fat and sugar of traditional eggnog: whole nutmeg. Don’t waste your time with ground nutmeg, it’s nothing let the whole stuff. Once the healthy eggnog pudding is finished, just top them with a dash of grated nutmeg. It makes all the difference in the world.


When I comes to pudding, rice pudding is by far my favorite. It’s delicious warm and just as delicious cold, anyway you eat it is just perfect. I added some chopped prunes and sliced almonds to some so additional texture to this pudding. Each bite is packed with comfort spice, and since it’s healthy you can go back bite after bite. What’s even better? I made this dish with leftover brown rice! The best way to reuse leftovers is to make them into dessert!

    Now that’s an amazingly flavored rice pudding. I have all the ingredients at home and my husband would absolutely love your recipe as a little dinner treat after a long day. Thank you for sharing your recipe. 🙂

    You’re right, freshly grated nutmeg is the only way to go. I love rice pudding and don’t make it nearly often enough. This looks delicious. I love the combination of flavors you’ve got.

    I love how comforting rice pudding is and this is a perfect pairing and flavor for the season. Love a healthy twist on eggnog. Most are far to thick and rich but haven’t had the real stuff in years only So Delicious and other dairy free versions.
