Homemade Eggnog Reicpe
Homemade Non-Alcoholic Eggnog

If you love the rich, creamy taste of classic eggnog, but don’t like the idea of using raw eggs, this recipe is for you.  My family loves Eggnog and we make this recipe every year during the Christmas season.  Try the recipe yourself and let me know if you love it as much as I do!

Protip:  For an adults-only version, add some rum, bourbon, or cognac to taste.

Servings: 12
Total Prep Time: 30 minutes (plus time to chill)


12 eggs
1 ¼ c. sugar
4 c. whole milk
2 t. vanilla extract
1 t. ground nutmeg
2 c. evaporated milk
2 c. half and half

Eggnog Recipe


Combine eggs and sugar in a medium glass bowl and whisk until thoroughly combined. Transfer to a saucepan and stir in whole milk, vanilla extract, and ground nutmeg.

In a separate glass bowl, stir evaporated milk and half and half until combined.

Heat egg mixture over medium-low heat while stirring constantly to prevent the milk from scorching. When mixture reaches 160 degrees on a candy thermometer, remove from heat and slowly whisk in evaporated milk mixture.

Cool slightly before tasting. Add more sugar or nutmeg, to desired taste, and transfer to an airtight container. Refrigerate overnight or until thoroughly chilled. Serve in mugs and garnish with whipped cream, cinnamon sticks, or a dash of nutmeg.
