Eggnog Milkshake

Christmas is upon us, and in some countries you guys are freezing, surrounded by snow, while the rest of us are literally dying of heat. This eggnog recipe is perfect hot or chilled!

Ingredients

  • 4 Egg Yolks
  • 2/3 cup of Granulated sugar
  • 2 cups of Whole Milk
  • 1/2 cup of Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Ground Cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Cinnamon
  • 2 scoops of good quality vanilla ice cream
  • 150 milliliters of heavy whipping cream. (whipped to stiff peaks)
  • Gingerbread cookie crumbs (to decorate)

Steps

  1. Add the cream, milk, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg in a saucepan and bring it to a gentle simmer.
  2. In a large bowl, using a hand held electric mixer, beat the egg yolks and sugar until the mixture doubles in volume and is nice and pale in color.
  3. Add about 1/2 of the hot milk mixture into the egg yolk mixture, making sure to constantly whisk.
  4. Once you have about half the milk in there you can go ahead and add the rest in there and whisk until everything is well combined. Set it aside to cool down. *
  5. To make milkshakes simply add a scoop of ice cream to a blender with half the eggnog and blend until well combined. If you want it to be extra chilled you could add ice to a glass blender with metal blades designed to crush ice.
  6. To finish off the milkshakes simply place a dollop of whipped cream on top and sprinkle some crushed gingerbread cookies on top.
  7. *At this stage you can go ahead and refrigerate the mixture and it will be good for a couple of days. Can be served chilled from the fridge or heated on the stove or microwave.
