My homemade eggnog is thick and creamy and completely alcohol free for those of us who are teetotal this festive period!
I completely adore Eggnog. It’s great to bake with and tastes amazing too. However, in the UK it is incredibly difficult to come by and it’s also hard to find an alcohol free one.
So, I made my own. Sometimes there are positives to being a recipe developer!
I used a mixture of whole milk and double (heavy) cream for this recipe, so it’s not a light recipe by any stretch of the imagination.
It is Christmas though, so I feel like it’s more than OK to indulge a little.
There’s a whole tablespoon of vanilla extract in this eggnog to really make sure you get that vanilla flavour singing through.
I also used egg yolks only as I wanted their richness to add to this beautifully festive beverage.
Of course you can add alcohol to this base recipe if you want, but I would not be able to tell you how much as I am not allowed even a drop due to medication and my fiancé is allergic, so we have a completely alcohol free house!
You know, a few years ago, before I’d ever tried eggnog I was worried I wouldn’t like it as some people said it was awfully rich and some said it just tastes like sickly sweet milk. Now, I’ve been making my own for a couple of years, I’m completely obsessed!
This does not just taste like sickly sweet milk, it’s properly flavourful; you get plenty of vanilla and richness from the yolks. Then you get that creamy, silky smooth texture and just a hint of nutmeg.
Served chilled with freshly grated nutmeg on the top is my favourite way to enjoy this delicious eggnog. It just makes me think of Christmas with every single sip and I hope you’ll enjoy it too!
