This is a very good eggnog. My kids love it. I used pasturized egg substitute in place of the eggs and used Splenda in place of the sugar, using a 1/2 cup instead of the full amount of sugar. It tastes rich and creamy and we don't have to worry about raw eggs! YUMMY! Read More

This is exceptional eggnog! The only change I made was substituting real rum for the extract and increasing it to 1/4 cup. We started with the tablespoon but felt it could use a little more rum flavor and it was easy to add the extra 1/4 cup after everything was complete so if you're not sure how strong you want it (1/4 cup isn't very strong) you can always start small and increase later!

I loved this recipe. So much cheaper to make than to purchase pre-made eggnog! I made the recipe as stated thought it was too thick with the whipped cream. Next time I added the heavy cream at the end but not whipped. Much better. Read More

It was pretty good but I though it was kind of bland. If I made it again I would add more sugar. Read More

this was delicious!! i made some slight alterations which made the recipe fatfree!! I used fat free half and half instead of heavy cream and since I didn't have nutmeg i added cinnamon instead. I also left out the salt and rum flavor and it still turned out delicious!! Adding cinnamon creamer to it makes it even more sweeter and still fat free!! I recommend it@!! A Read More
