I developed this recipe because of my love for eggnog and my dislike of the thought of drinking raw eggs. I spent quite a long time and much trial and error before being confident enough to finalize this recipe. Tastes just like the real thing! Enjoy!

This is a GREAT recipe for eggnog. I actually tried it because I had used all of the eggs making deviled eggs :) It tastes VERY much like the store-bought eggnog that has gotten SO expensive. It is EASY to make, and quite a hit. I did trade a pint of whipping cream for part of the milk so that it would be thicker. Thanks!! Read More

Naturally I have tried my own recipe... It is VERY close to the real thing! Always a hit at any festive gathering. I use 2% milk, and regular instant vanilla pudding mix- NOT french vanilla. The rum extract is the key ingredient. Experiment with the other spices to your own liking! Read More

We loved this!!!! I made this exactly according to the recipe and it was just what I was looking for. No eggs! Now, I am not an eggnog expert but I do drink it every year and I was trying to find a healthier recipe and this was it. I'll def make it again next year. I'm going to try it next time with the super-skim fat free milk. Read More

Fantastic!!! I used 4 cups of 2% milk and a cup of half and half, only because that’s what I had on hand. Turned out great. Kids and adults love it! The rum extract is mandatory- it gives it the true egg nog flavor. Read More

I made it exactly as your recipe, minus the rum extract. Doesn't taste exactly like eggnog, but it's real close. Very tasty. I will make this again! Read More
