No Bake Eggnog Cheesecake Pudding

posted in: Recipes

Enjoy this ultra-creamy spicy no bake eggnog cheesecake pudding with grass-fed gelatin for the holidays this year! It’s a great example of how easy keto recipes can be sugar-free and low-carb and perfect for gluten-free and keto dieters. Even those who enjoy carnivore diet recipes can get in on this seasonally inspired dish!

With a very simple list of ingredients in this recipe, it is important to use quality spices. This dessert is essentially just cream flavored with cinnamon and nutmeg. We rely on the spices to get the signature eggnog smell and taste.

I’ve tasted old dry dusty cinnamon before and it’s made a mark on my memory! Once you’ve tasted the real thing, it becomes so disappointing to realize what a weak imitation low-quality spices can be.

I get all my herbs and spices from an Oregon based company called Mountain Rose Herbs. They have a huge selection and never fail to bring the best quality to the market.

You may know them as the sponsors behind my DIY soap and personal care recipes, but they do more than provide resources for the home herbalist. In addition to essential oils, carrier oils, containers, and every herb you could ever think of, Mountain Rose Herbs also stocks the best quality organic culinary herbs as well.

My goal is always to use and recommend only the highest quality products from companies that I wholly trust and fully support. Quality control, organic and fair trade standards, and responsible sourcing are all things I care deeply about when considering which companies to work with. In the decade that I have been shopping with Mountain Rose, I have seen them maintain a high commitment to environmental stewardship and transparent business practices.

If you are able, please consider making your next order for organic botanical products like herbs, spices, teas, and essential oils with Mountain Rose Herbs. Thank you in advance for supporting the brands that help to make this blog possible!

A no bake eggnog cheesecake pudding without Jello

Grass-fed beef gelatin is the featured ingredient of this dessert recipe. It’s how we can make a jiggly jello-like custard pudding texture without cooking or using artificially flavored Jello packets.

I recommend Great Lakes gelatin because it is pure, unflavored gelatin powder from pasture-raised, grass-fed beef.

Don’t worry about getting stuck with 15.5 leftover ounces of gelatin after you make this recipe. I use this same powder for thickening a sugar-free Peppermint Custard, binding my Keto Gingerbread Loaf, and putting the “chewy” in Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies. It’s also great for adding into warm drinks like coffee, broth, and hot chocolate!

Is Eggnog Keto?

Traditional store-bought eggnog is packed with sugar and cannot be considered keto-friendly.

This homemade version is simplified to a few basic ingredients and approved for the keto diet.

Review the recipe and you’ll see cream, gelatin, water, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a keto sweetener. With an ingredient list like this, the eggnog pudding is 100% low-carb and ketogenic!

Each serving has 2.5 g net carbohydrates and won’t take you out of ketosis.

In place of sugar, I use liquid Lakanto drops for flavor and added sugar-free sweetness. Lakanto is my favorite healthy sugar alternative. Their all-natural, zero glycemic, and zero-calorie monk fruit sweeteners are great for baking, chocolate making, and drinks!

You may substitute with liquid stevia drops if you have those on hand instead.

Make a Single Serving No bake Eggnog Cheesecake for One

Sometimes we are only making food for ourselves, if that’s the case for you simply divide the recipe by 4 to make a single serving no bake eggnog cheesecake for one.

Sprinkle 1 teaspoon gelatin over 6 tablespoons of heavy cream. Set aside while ¼ cup of water comes to a boil. Whisk in ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon and nutmeg with 5 drops of the liquid Lakanto sweetener. Add the cream to the water and spices. Whisk well until smooth. Transfer to a single ramekin and chill for 30+ minutes until set.

    Thanks for introducing me to that liquid sweetener. Never knew such a thing exists! It’s a big help to reduce sugar intake in the diet. 🙂

      It comes in handy for drinks and recipes where you don’t want the bulkiness of extra material.
