Wildcraft Eggnog Holiday Indulgence with Health Benefits

Wildcraft Eggnog Holiday Indulgence with Health Benefits

The holiday season beckons family and friend together. A special treat reserved for this time of year is eggnog! We are NOT talking about that store bought stuff – wildcraft eggnog! This recipe comes highly recommended and straight from our favorite website LearningHerbs.com 

John says, 

“Eggnog often gets viewed as a total indulgence (read: unhealthy treat that will make you gain pounds just by looking at it). And if you buy eggnog at the store then this is probably true. Not only do store-bought eggnogs contain ingredients of poor quality (like factory-farmed milk and eggs) but you will also most likely find it to be full of weird preservatives and tons of sugar. But if you make your own eggnog you can control the ingredients and change it from an unhealthy beverage to a wonderful health-promoting drink.”
