Traditional Holiday Eggnog

Posted by Troy Fisher on 11/24/2013 to Recipes

Toast to prosperity and good health for 2014 with this traditional English holiday drink. Eggnog is the perfect mix of raw milk, eggs, and honey with a dash of spices—and liquor too if that suits your fancy. For a new twist on the old classic: put it in the ice cream maker for a delicious frozen treat!

For this recipe, you will need:

  • 4 cups raw whole milk OR 2 cups milk and 2 cups cream
  • 8 egg yolks from pastured chickens
  • 1-1/2 TBSP vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 4 TBSP raw honey
  • OPTIONAL: liquor of choice (brandy, rum, whisky, bourbon, vodka)

Put all ingredients in a blender and blend on medium for 30 seconds or until frothy. Pour into glasses, spike with liquor or garnish with a sprinkle of spice, and enjoy! For ice cream, simply pour the eggnog into an ice-cream maker. Once it's churned to the right consistency, sprinkle with cinnamon on top, and serve. Happy Holidays!

This tastes just as good if you use one or two bananas instead of honey. Add a handful of walnuts which contributes to the cardio benefits. Um yum!
