1 (14 ounce) can
sweetened condensed milk
eggs, beaten well
This was a super simple recipe. The egg nog came out tasting very good. I had to improvise slightly. I used fat free sweetened condensed milk and almond milk in stead of whole milk. I will also add a pinch of freshly grated nutmeg next time.
Make sure the eggs are THOROUGHLY beaten before adding to any milk. I use a small food processor/food chopper. And I eat them to a light yellow color so all the white is well blended.
Fantastic recipe. But me and my wife like to add a fifth of Traveler's Club vodka to the batch. Cheers!
This is a terrific and simple base recipe! A big thanks to the poster. I made eggnog a long time ago from another recipe and hated it. I went back to the store bought stuff until today. It's Particularly nice if you don't want to make a lot. I did modify it some.
I used 1/2 whipping cream and 1/2 milk because I wanted it to be creamy. I added cloves and nutmeg to taste (for me that ended up being 1 1/2 t nutmeg and 1 t cloves. I also increased the vanilla. I increase the vanilla on any recipe I try that contains it though.
As others have said, this is a simple basic recipe, but made it because store-bought is so full of sugar. Threw everything in a blender. I substituted 2 Cups of whipping cream for 2 cups of the quart of milk, used twice the vanilla, and added a teaspoon of nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves. I also used regular unsweetened lowfat canned milk and added 1/4 Cup Splenda. I also used pasturized liquid eggs (Egg Beaters) instead of eggs for safety. Yummy nog and can be easily spiked, I'm sure.
This is very yummy! The one to use!!
I missed out this year on traditional store-bought dairy Egg Nog, which I love without the alcohol – Thank you! So, I thought I would give this recipe a try, due to its simplicity. Like all, I did make modifications to suit my needs.
I deleted the salt from the recipe as I try to hold down sodium content in my food. Also, for even more simplicity, I substituted ½ cup of Original Egg Beaters for the eggs.
I was very happy with the result. It was very fresh and very cold and now I can have "egg nog" whenever I want.
You can add salt, nutmeg and booze to taste. Enjoy!
This recipe was a huge hit!
