I love everything Christmas, I mean I have got it BAD!

When the stores start selling eggnog every season, I get giddy. However, I am not so excited about all of the additives and processed junk that is in those pretty green and red cartons! Why not give homemade eggnog a try?

We get raw milk from a local farm and it has the most amazing thick cream on top. I just had to make it into eggnog! But, I like it thick…like drinking batter thick! So I decided to make this stuff really rich. You can always substitute milk for cream in this recipe if you don’t like it quite so creamy. Cheers!

1. Add all of the ingredients to a high powered blender and blend on high until well combined and nice and creamy.

2. Top with freshly grated nutmeg....and if you like, spike it with rum!


For the nutmeg, I use this grater and a fresh nutmeg nut.

  2. I know that they’re pasteurized eggs but should anyone be concerned with consuming raw eggs? Or does the high powered blender “cook” them in some way? Thanks.

    1. If you let the blender go long enough, it could definitely “cook” the eggs a bit. I am not very concerned about raw egg yolks if you source them right.

    2. Hi Jennifer, The ingredient list calls for ‘pastured’ eggs, which is very different from ‘pasteurized’ eggs. Pastured refers to the way the chickens live and eat. Pasteurized refers to a heating method which kills bacteria without actually cooking the egg. I’m fortunate that my local grocery store sells pasteurized eggs, but there are also plenty of instructions on the internet for pasteurizing your store-bought eggs at home. Happy Holidays!

  3. I can so identify with feeling ‘giddy’ over eggnog. I bought my first carton yesterday. Later, when taking it out of the fridge for my first taste of the season, I actually hugged – yes HUGGED – the carton. It took me a moment to restore my sanity lol.
    The reason I’m here is because for the first time ever, I read the ingredient labels of the nogs I was considering, and to my horror, every single one contained HFCS. Major jaw drop. I’ve always wanted to try making my own, and now I have the perfect excuse to get going. Thank you for posting the recipe, and have a wonderful eggnog season!
