I stumbled upon this recipe when trying to make vanilla instant pudding for my daughter, who is allergic to milk. I not only discovered that instant pudding doesn't work with non-dairy creamer, but it DOES create the base for the richest, tastiest, no-cholesterol egg nog I've ever tasted! Because there are no raw eggs, it's also safer that the traditional.

This also works with cold fat free evaporated milk and sugar free french vanilla pudding. To give it a hint of alcohol flavor without adding the brandy, I added a good measure of rum extract. EXCELLENT as a coffee creamer for those who like eggnog lattes but can't afford to buy them every day. Read More

I replaced the non dairy creamer with regular soy milk, and found this recipe delicious! The only problem I had was having to mix a 2nd time in the blender, as once it sat overnight it seperated. jj Read More

Unfortunately I don't think this a good substitute for the real thing and that's too bad because it is easy to make. My biggest complaint is that it tastes too artificial and more like a vanilla drink rather than eggnog. Another point is that it ends up costing more than the bottles of eggnog that you can buy at the supermarket that I think taste better. There's no cost savings to making your own. After refrigeration it thickened (like pudding should do) so I added milk and re-blended to reach the right consistency. Sorry Joy this one just didn't work for me. We drank it but I doubt I'll make again. Read More
