Eggnog – you either love it or you hate it.

But homemade eggnog is different. Forget all that fake flavored stuff at the store and forget the corn syrup, thickeners, and other additives they put in it. This is the good stuff – simple, real food ingredients with just the right amount of natural sweetness and a hint of spice.

Even my husband, who never liked eggnog before, can’t get enough of my homemade version!

Easy Eggnog in the Blender

There are a couple different ways to make thick, creamy eggnog – one is to cook the milk and other ingredients until they thicken. But obviously, the cooking takes longer, and requires more time to chill in the fridge before serving too. So why not save some time and swap the milk for thicker cream, toss everything into the blender, and enjoy an eggnog that is every bit as rich and creamybut ready in just two minutes?

Eggnog has got to be one of the easiest holiday recipes ever and it gets 5 star reviews every time I serve it so I know you’ll love it too!

Rich and Creamy Eggnog Made with Real Food Ingredients

And there’s even more to love about this eggnog – it’s made entirely from nutrient dense, real food ingredients. And I would even classify it as a legit healthy drink. Here me out…

  • Pastured egg yolks – rich in choline, selenium, B vitamins, omega-3’s, fat soluble vitamin K2, protein, plus some vitamin A and D
  • Cream + milk – B vitamins, vitamin D, and calcium. I prefer organic and I use raw milk almost exclusively. Nutritionally, raw cream would be better than pasteurized cream but it won’t be as thick, so you may want to use a full cup of raw cream and omit the milk altogether if you’re going that route.
  • Refined sugar free – This recipe has far less sugar than store bought eggnog, and it uses unrefined honey and maple syrup in place of more refined sweeteners.

How to Make Easy Eggnog

This is so easy it almost seems silly to give step by step instructions. Just gather your ingredients, blend them, then pour.

I think this eggnog is thick and creamy enough as it is but feel free to add a little fresh whipped cream on top of each glass if you really want an over the top holiday drink!

Tips for Making Easy Eggnog

  • This is a pretty versatile recipe – you can adjust the milk-to-cream ratio or the amounts of sweetener and spices to suit your tastes.
  • You can make it ahead and store in the fridge for up to a few days. I like to store mine in the blender pitcher so I can just blend and pour!
  • I recommend chilling the mixture before serving if you have time but, if you’re in a rush, you can serve it right away.
  • This is an alcohol free eggnog, but feel free to add a splash of brandy or rum if you like.
  • For an extra rich holiday touch, add some fresh whipped cream just before serving.
  • This would be perfect as an eggnog latte – just add espresso or strong coffee.
  • It also makes an incredible ice cream mixture – just add it to your pre-chilled ice cream maker and churn according to manufacturer instructions.
  • I only recommend consuming raw eggs and dairy from sources you trust. I buy from local farms that I’m confident operate at the highest food safety standards.
