There’s nothing more delicious at Christmas time than Eggnog Ice Cream. The only problem with this dish is it’s great any time of year! This nutritious and delicious treat is a crowd pleaser, but it’s so good it’ll make you hide somewhere just to get it to yourself. With a dish like this, no one needs to share!

Once on stage two of GAPS, tolerating yolks and home fermented sour cream, eggnog is delicious but also healing. Rebuilding the microbiome includes specific steps, one of which is copious amounts of yolks and sour cream. Add a sprinkle of honey and a chilling process  – boom, eggnog ice cream.

Be sure to test for egg whites before introducing them into your diet. Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, MD, neurologist and author of GAPS, says the best way to test for food sensitivities is to place a small portion of the food on the inside of your wrist before going to bed. Let it dry and remain there throughout the night. When you wake up in the morning check the spot. If it is red or inflamed your gut has not healed enough to introduce that food. Allow another few days or weeks (in extreme cases) to pass before trying again. Once your gut has healed through the GAPS nourishing and healing protocol you will be ready to advance with more food choices.

Prep Time
30 min
  1. 3 to 12 egg yolks from free ranging in the yard, bug and worm eating chickens (quantity depends on person's tolerance)
  2. 1 cup kefir (preferably made with raw cream)
  3. honey to taste (2-3 tablespoons)
  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  5. 3 egg whites
  6. 1 teaspoon nutmeg (if tolerated, this is stage 3)
  1. In blender, on low, combine yolks until they change color to a soft yellow or white. This is emulsifying the yolks. Add the remaining ingredients until combined. Do not blend kefir long as it changes the structure.
  2. Add mixture to an ice cream maker. When the mixture is firm, enjoy, or freeze. The more yolks you use, the easier it is to scoop after it's been in the freezer overnight.
