This eggnog milkshake is made with milk or leftover eggnog, blended with vanilla ice cream, nutmeg, and a little rum for a fun twist on a great holiday beverage.
In the spirit of stress-free Christmas cheer, I came up with this idea for an eggnog milkshake. Eggnog is basically a crème anglaise spiked with rum (or bourbon) and flavoured with lots and lots of nutmeg, so why not make it using vanilla ice cream (since vanilla ice cream is also crème anglaise based).
You can make this milkshake with leftover eggnog or regular milk. This is the perfect holiday drink. Bonus: it takes just a few minutes to make—the hardest part is scooping the ice cream.
I highly recommend taking a moment for yourself, at the end of the day, with an eggnog milkshake to brighten your spirit so that you can enjoy a festive holiday moment in all the chaos. Or for a hot festive drink, try making hot buttered rum!
- Blend the vanilla ice cream with the eggnog (or milk), rum and nutmeg until it’s smooth and frothy. Serve in a tall glass (or 2 glasses if you are sharing) with crumbled graham crackers and a sprinkling of nutmeg.
If you have leftover eggnog, remember you can bake it into this eggnog pound cake recipe!
