Advice on a good egg nog recipe?

Hey all! I am new to this message board but I have nosed around it several times for good, low carb/keto friendly recipes. I have been trying to come up with a good recipe for egg nog. I have already looked around at past posts with recipes for egg nog, but have found this one to be the best tasting:

1 quart heavy cream
2/3c davinci sugar free egg nog syrup
1/4c egg beaters
1/2t vanilla extract
1/4c splenda or equivalent

It tastes wonderful! And very keto friendly. My issue with it is this: a one cup serving of this recipe contains over 800 calories! I want to stick with this recipe for the most part, but cut the calories down. So I edited the recipe like so:

2c heavy cream
2c unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/4c egg beaters
2/3c davinci sugar free egg nog syrup

Wonderful flavor still. My issue with this one is: too runny!

I have seen in the past that people use Table Creama in place of sweetened condensed milk. I have seen this in the store before, but have never used it. I saw that there is a Light Table Crema available that I was thinking of using. So I was thinking of doing this recipe:

1 quart light table crema
2/3c davinci sugar free egg nog syrup
1/4c egg beaters
1/4c splenda or equivalent
1/2t vanilla

Still keto friendly, and a one cup serving would now be 264 calories - much better.

I want to know: do any of you have experience with Light Table Crema? What is it's consistency? Will it be thick? From what I have been reading about table cream, the light version may curdle when cooled (i.e. refrigerated), but can be helped if it is cooked first - is this true? What are your suggestions - should I heat this recipe and add a thickener, and if so, do you think it will be prone to curdling when placed back in the fridge?

I'd make it real simple - take the second recipe (with the almond milk) and whir it all in a blender with some glucomannan until you get the mouthfeel you're looking for.

Alternatively, I'd use the same recipe but up the eggbeaters to 1/2 cup and heat gently and stir til it thickens up a bit, then cool.

I love love love store bought high sugar egg nog. Usually breakdown and have 1/4 cup (really, why bother) Have been working hard to come up with a good lc replacement

I haven't seen SF egg nog syrup

I make 1 glass at a time

1/4 c egg beaters
1/4 c HWC
1 C almond/ coconut milk
@ 2 T SF butter rum syrup
mix well

top with ground nutmeg

This is as close to the real thing I have found. Don't taste coconut at all, and this has the right mouth feel

A lot of the low-carb recipes call for a package of sugar free french vanilla pudding to 2 cups almond milk + 1 cup half and half, to thicken it.
