Calling all eggnog fans!

Question for you.

Has it ever crossed your mind to make your own eggnog? To bypass the ease of a box from the store’s dairy section, to see if a homemade version is any better?

Well, I took on that challenge myself just last week. And I can say that making homemade eggnog is quite alot of fun. And so very good. This Homemade Eggnog Recipe is better than the box, I’ll readily admit!

Traditional eggnog recipes will have you using both raw egg yolks and raw egg whites. But I know from past experience with sharing recipes here, that many people tend to geek out when they see raw eggs being used.

Personally, I don’t have a big issue with it…I’ve been eating raw cookie dough since I was a tot.

But incorporating raw eggs in food and drinking raw eggs just felt a bit different to me. So I sought out a way to make eggnog that bucked the tradition a bit, using no raw eggs.

And I am so super pleased with the results. This homemade eggnog recipe gives you a festive holiday bevy that is rich and creamy and incredibly delicious. Blake gave this recipe an enthusiastic thumbs-up, and I’m sure you will too!
