HOMEMADE EGG FREE EGGNOG — Why buy eggnog at the store when you can have creamy, delicious egg-free eggnog all year long with this easy-to-make recipe.
I often find myself wanting to try holiday eggnog recipes before eggnog is available in stores. Which means I had to find a way to make eggnog from scratch at home.
This amazingly easy Homemade Egg Free Eggnog is the answer! In fact, my family says they like it more than store-bought eggnog.
There’s only one problem with this recipe. Being able to have eggnog any time you want is dangerous. Especially if you want to keep fitting in your skinny jeans.
And yes, this stuff tastes just like what you get at the store. It’s not quite as thick as eggnog from a carton, but everyone at my house agrees that we actually prefer it that way.
There are eggnog recipes out there that do contain eggs, but I wasn’t 100% comfortable with eating raw eggs, or feeding them to my family, so I went with an egg free recipe.
With the perfect blend of nutmeg, allspice and ginger, and just a dash of vanilla, no one will ever know the difference. I don’t drink alcohol, but obviously you could add a splash of rum or rum extract in place of the vanilla.
And this eggnog literally takes about five minutes to mix up in a blender! You do need to let it sit in the refrigerator for an hour or two to thicken up a bit, but it really couldn’t be any easier.
Whether or not you can find eggnog at your local grocery store this holiday season, your going to want to add this recipe to your holiday collection.
Be sure to save this Homemade Egg Free Eggnog recipe to your favorite Pinterest board for later.
