Mom used to make me 'eggnog' for breakfast when I was a kid. A raw egg in a glass of milk with some sugar and cinnamon. Mix slightly and drink. If you could get past the texture it as OK.

That seems like a pretty easy eggnog Andy

Is it a bit thick in texture?

My husband really wanted me to get into making eggnog this year (spiked). However, with my lactose intolerance I just couldn't find a good recipe for both of us. I know those in 'my group' have great recipes but in my opinion, it does taste different. And he eats 'normal' food, so I just didn't see that working out. Am I wrong here?? He's willing to give it a try. But I hate wasting time with ingredients just for him to not eat it.

Just make enough for two cups of it, if he doesn't like it, try another recipe. There might be something he finds acceptable that you can also drink. Never know until you try.

The recipe and technique I posted earlier in this thread would work with soy milk, almond milk, rice milk, etc. Try them and see how it turns out. Experiment a bit. You may find that you have something palatable to both of you, maybe even better than the original.

Almond milk sounds like it would be fabulous in eggnog.

My mom used to make that whenever I was sick as a child...I still like it.

I used to make something we called Tarzan breakfast. A raw egg beaten well with o.j. and milk or milk powder. It was almost an Orange Julius, but no sugar.
