    Eggnog was not something I was brought up with. As a child, my most common drink in the winter was hot cordial or juice, with the occasional hot chocolate. Once I was older, it became mulled wine then I was introduced to hot apple cider when I moved to New York. Eggnog never really featured, and I’ve still only had it a handful of times.

    However always up for a challenge, when today’s Sunday Supper was announced as having an eggnog theme, I figured I had to try. And it turns out homemade eggnog is really easy. I decided on these coconut eggnog overnight oats made with homemade eggnog and both the eggnog itself and the eggnog overnight oats were delicious.

    The inspiration

    As I was looking for inspiration on how to use eggnog, I came across eggnog overnight oats which seemed just my kind of thing. After all, I love the various versions I have made such as orange overnight oats and Swiss Bircher muesli.

    The coconut variation is partly out of what I had – I didn’t have any cream but I did have coconut milk. However I really liked it – not only does it mean you can make the eggnog dairy free, but it’s a lower fat and tasty version too.

    Eggnog in the evening, oats in the morning

    One of the fun things about this recipe is it gives you both a drink for the evening and breakfast for the morning. The recipe makes more eggnog than you need for the oats, so you may as well enjoy the rest in the evening. You will end up with more of the white part left which is better for drinking than going in with the oats anyway. Feel free to spike it too, if you like – whiskey and/or rum are always good choices.

    These coconut eggnog overnight oats are an easy and tasty breakfast and drink combined. With the smooth, rich, creamy taste you would expect from eggnog (although the good homemade versions rather than stuff out of a packet), but also a lovely hint of coconut, it’s a great end to one day, and start to another.

    • teaspoon nutmeg
    • ¼ teaspoon vanilla essence

    • Separately whisk the egg white until you get soft peaks then fold it into the milk mixture.

    • Measure out the oats and add ½cup/120ml of the eggnog to the oats. Cover and leave to soak overnight in the fridge. Meanwhile, enjoy your remaining eggnog, with a little extra nutmeg on top (and spiked if you like).

    • In the morning, lightly toast the coconut and serve on top of the soaked oats, stirring through as you eat.
