How Can I Make Lactose-Free Eggnog?

Q: My family was thinking ahead to Christmas and my cousin brought up the subject of eggnog and how much he loved my homemade version. But the problem is that he is lactose-intolerant and could only drink so much.

I know there is not lactose in goat and sheep milk and was looking for recipes that use that. But they are few and far between.

They also suggest that you use cream in it as well as the milk. Is this needed? Is there any ways I can really make it completely lactose free? Goat milk AND goat cream??

Editor: Jake, there is actually lactose in goat and sheep milk; it’s just that it doesn’t bother some lactose-intolerant people as much as the lactose in cow’s milk.

Our suggestion would be to look up a good soy or rice milk recipe for eggnog! Does anyone have one?
