This is oddly embarrassing, but I have no idea when I’m supposed to drink eggnog. Is it a Thanksgiving thing? Christmas thing? Winter solstice? No idea! All I know is that I’m obsessed and can’t resist buying a couple dozen carton or two every year. The only problem with that is the store bought stuff isn’t the best for you, but tghe homemade can take a while. And I’m always a little paranoid about eggs being cooked sufficiently.

When I heard about siggis, I knew I wanted to make eggnog with it. Their motto ““simple ingredients, not a lot of sugar” is basically my life goals and the high protein content would make this a much healthier choice. The Pumpkin & Spice flavor jumped out at me — if I’m not sure when I’m supposed to be drinking regular eggnog, surely a pumpkin spice nog is perfect for Thanksgiving, though I wouldn’t judge you if you wanted to drink it all the time.

Pro tip: freshly grate the nutmeg!! I had somehow never used freshly grated nutmeg before, despite the fact that it’s basically my favorite spice ever. Life changing. Plus when there’s so few ingredients in a recipe, you really want to keep everything high quality for great, clean flavors that really sing.

Pumpkin Spice Nog
Prep time: 
Total time: 

Serves: 2 c

  • 2 – 5.3 oz containers of siggi’s Pumpkin & Spice yogurt
  • 1 c unsweetened almond milk or your preferred milk
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup, to taste
  • Freshly grated nutmeg, to taste (I used about ¼ – ⅓ of a nutmeg seed)

  1. Blend all of the ingredients together.
  2. Let rest for about 5 – 15 minutes and then taste, adjusting the sweetener and nutmeg to taste. The nog will thicken as it sits and the flavors will adjust — if you taste right after blending, it will taste overly sweet but the flavor will mellow. If it gets too thick, blend in additional milk.

Nutritional estimates are based on using almond milk.
If you can’t find siggi’s Pumpkin & Spice, I recommend using vanilla for a slightly more traditional tasting nog.
This recipe is easily halved to serve one or multiplied to serve many. siggi’s vanilla comes in larger containers.

    I have to laugh because I know people who also had no idea how to drink eggnog; once asked “is it alcoholic?” Ha! Love your blog and this sounds mouth watering. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
