How Do You Make A Homemade Eggnog Recipe?
A Homemade eggnog recipe is easier than pie. Literally. Pies take awhile to make, have many ingredients and generally require cooking. Homemade eggnog, on the other hand, can be prepared in 2-3 minutes. Only three ingredients are required—eggs, milk, sweetener. Further, eggnog ingredients can be whipped up and served without cooking.
Commercial eggnogs are available in the dairy section of most supermarkets during the Christmas holiday season. Drink them if you dare! I stay away from commercial eggnog for four main reasons.
One, the ones I’ve found so sweet they're almost sickening.
Two, commercial eggnogs are expensive--about 4 times the cost of homemade eggnog recipes.
Three, they’re loaded with chemicals. Someone once said, “If you can’t pronounce the ingredients, don’t eat it!”
Four, can you find a commercial eggnog without high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) as a primary ingredient? Well-informed health-conscious people understand the detrimental effects of HFCS. (It spikes insulin levels and is a major contributor to obesity.)
This morning I concocted an original eggnog recipe. It’s really an eggnog milkshake—just right for a hot and humid July afternoon snack (or anytime for that matter.)

3 eggs, preferably from free-range hens
Place all ingredients together in a blender. Blend until all ingredients are integrated. This may take up to 2 minutes as the caramel sauce tends to be thick and sticky.
Is this the best eggnog I’ve ever concocted? No, I don’t think so. Maybe not the best, but it sure hits the spot on a hot and humid summer day!
