Recipes for carb-sensitive egg nog are available on websites such as Low Carb Friends and The Gracious Pantry. A low-carb egg nog usually contains eggs, heavy cream, water, vanilla, nutmeg and a preferred type of sweetener.
Traditionally, egg nog is made with sugar and alcohol such as brandy, rum or bourbon. To make it low-carb, individuals should cut out the sugar and alcohol, and use an artificial sweetener as an alternative. The low-carb version may not be as thick as the traditional egg nog. The carb-sensitive recipe is suitable for children, as it does not contain any alcohol. Rum extract can be used as a substitute for alcohol for extra flavor.
