  • 4 Egg Whites
  • 2 Egg Yolks (optional)
  • 4 cup Full Fat Coconut Milk (canned)
  • 1 cup Almond Milk
  • 1/4 cup Maple Syrup (or Date Syrup)
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Freshly Grated Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup Rum (optional)


  • In a blender, blend egg white (and optional egg yolk) and maple syrup until it becomes light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes on a medium-low setting.
  • Over medium heat, combine the coconut milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, and bring it to a simmer.
  • Turn the blender on the lowest setting and slowly pour the warm coconut milk mixture into the egg mixture. Continue to blend for about 2-3 minutes. Slowly pour in the almond milk to make the mixture even more smooth and creamy, blend for 1 minute.
  • Transfer the mixture back into the pan and stir continuously until the mixture has thickened slightly and is completely smooth, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove the mixture from the heat and add vanilla extract. If you'd like, now is the time to add bourbon, whiskey, or dark rum.
  • Allow the mixture to chill. Serve with freshly grated nutmeg. Enjoy!
