Homemade Holiday Eggnog that Will Knock Your Stockings Off

While this recipe doesn't call for kale or inflammatory-reducing spices, we figured every now and then it's good for the soul to live a little. This one's just pure, warm, creamy, full-indulgence deliciousness.

So put on those cozy socks, press play to your favorite Christmas playlist, put on a fire, and enjoy the creamy, warm and comforting flavors of eggnog with your favorite people this holiday. And if you find yourself this Christmas getting sore from whisking the eggs for eggnog (which may or may not have happened), don't fret. That's what New Years resolutions are for, right? So go ahead, treat yo'self.

Happy holidays, everyone!

And people, this literally tastes like autumn in a bowl.
