Create an alternative to egg nog with Milk Nog. Spicing up whole milk with cinnamon and nutmeg, sugar and vanilla delivers a refreshing real food drink at home.
I tasted egg nog for the first time as an adult. I loved it. Later I tried a milk nog blended by a local dairy. I loved it even more. What I love to the nth degree? Being able to make this deliciously refreshing holiday beverage at home on a moment’s notice.
Homemade Milk Nog is really quite simple. It’s a great recipe to use up milk, especially when you have a lot you don’t want to waste.
It doesn’t require much: whole milk, cream, sweetener, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Whisk it all together and what do you get?
What is milk nog?
Milk Nog is a great alternative to punch or even regular milk. Sure, it’s got some sweetener in it, but you can be all crunchy by using whatever sweetener you like. I love this made with maple syrup. It’s amazingly good. The perfect holiday treat with very little work.
Enjoy it as is or use it to enhance Iced Coffee Drinks.
Be sure to serve it chilled and whip it well before serving. Cheers!
