Wonderful - and so easy! Now I can whip up some "egg" nog whenever the urge strikes since I often have these ingredients on hand (I actually substituted soy milk and used sugar-free/fat-free instant vanilla pudding). Read More

As an option for egg-phobic or teetotallers I recommend this for parties that you don't plan letting get out of hand due to your eggnog! Making a gallon was going to be impossible with even a doubling of the recipie but I added to the double recipie 1 pint of heavy cream 1/4 tsp. of vanilla extract and a dash of cinnamon-sugar. There was enough room in the gallon jug to shake instead of stirring before serving but enough for everyone at the party! Read More

WAY WAY too much rum flavoring is called for in this 'nog recipe! I only used half of the amount called for and still the intensity of the "fake" rum taste and smell was nauseating. We have made homemade eggnog before and the thought of a virtually fat free version was enticing. (Skim milk and fat free/sugar free pudding were used) I was about to throw this all away but decided to let it sit in the refrigerator overnight and try it again in the morning. The smell was still unappealling but the flavors blended and it didn't taste as bad as the night before. It still wasn't "good" but it is worth trying again with A LOT less rum flavoring (maybe 1/4 teaspoon!) Read More

This recipe is awesome!!! I am a diabetic and like heaping glasses of orange juice of years past I thought eggnog was too a thing of the past. BUT NOT ANYMORE! Here are my changes: I used sugar-free french vanilla pudding mix 1/2 tsp cloves 1 1/2 tsp nutmeg and a whopping 4 tsp imitation rum extract! I added 3 envelopes of equal to a 8 oz. cup and voila! AMAZING! No more small sips here and there of eggnog for me. And hey my sister is my toughest critic and a HUGE eggnog lover from way back. And she said it tasted no different! I think the rum extract really makes this drink. Do yourself a favor and try this recipe! Read More

My daughter is allergic to eggs so when I found this recipe I was thrilled! It tastes just like the real thing but doesn't leave that thick egg taste in your throat! This year was the second year I've made it this time for my extended family. It was so simple and easy to change the recipe amounts to fit my group size - so I didn't have to guess at the amounts. Everyone enjoyed it; commenting a number of times "Are you sure this doesn't have eggs?" Delicious! Thanks a bunch!!! Read More

I love this eggnog i never add the rum i just dont like the flavor but i do add some cinnamon. I usualy eye ball it when adding the milk cause i like it thick but not too thick. I use fat free milk and it still turns out quite creamy. Thanks for the great idea its a winner at my christmas party every year. Read More

I love this recipe! I have been using at our Thanksgiving and Christmas parties for 2 years. I always get rave reviews for the eggnog. It's such a cheap and yummy alternative to store bought! I usually mix half milk half half & half. Read More

I thought this was very good! I actually only used a total of 3-3/4 cups of milk (I used fat free super skim). I used 2 cups to mix with the pudding mix and then only had to add 1-3/4 cups more to get it to the desired thickness. I started out only using 1 tsp. rum extract but ended up adding more for a more 'authentic ' flavor and also used more nutmeg than called for (to taste). While this would never replace 'real ' eggnog this was a great substitute that I would make again! Thanks for sharing.:) UPDATE: After letting it set in the fridge it did get quite a bit thicker and I ended up having to add more milk to thin it out so I would say that I did end up using close to the amount called for.

This egg free eggnog recipe is AMAZING!!! My son is severely allergic to eggs and I am uncomfortable having regular eggnog in the house. I tried this recipe on New Years Eve at a family party. 6 people tried this eggnog and they all LOVED it! It tastes just like the real thing! Thank you thank you!! I now have a safe solution and it's very cost effective too! I tried it two ways and both were equally delish: I made it with fat-free vanilla pudding mix and used skim milk and it was wonderful and still had some of the thickness you'd expect from an eggnog but not too thick. I also tried it with 2% milk and regular pudding mix and it was just as good. I will be using the fat-free method! Guilt-free eggnog! I also did not use the run extract. I added an ounce of white rum to my glass and that's what the others did as well. It was wonderful and if you didn't say anything nobody would EVER know the difference! Read More
