It is that time of year that we can start to enjoy the decadent flavor of eggnog again. It is so simple to make and takes only a few minutes to whip up a batch that it seems a shame to use the store bought cartons of eggnog. The real deal doesn’t have any chemical or artificial flavor aftertaste. It is best consumed while resting a bit, or taking in beautiful scenery, or while spending time with those you love. Enjoy!
Farmgirl’s Homemade Eggnog
In a blender combine:
3 eggs (We use farm fresh eggs from the coop. They are raw in this recipe so use eggs you trust!)
2 1/2 cups of milk (You can use any milk but I sure love my goat’s milk.)
1/2 cup of organic raw sugar (Yup, half a cup, this is the holidays.)
2 Tablespoons of homemade vanilla extract (Or 2 teaspoons of store bought. Click here for homemade vanilla extract recipe.)
1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
Turn blender on and in a minute you will have a delicious way to start the holiday season. Adding bourbon, brandy, spiced rum, hazelnut, or coffee liqueur elevates this to a party!
Use eggnog in place of milk in recipes. Add eggnog to cake recipes, coffee cake, pies, bread, cookies, or add a touch to your morning coffee.
