When you get to know me there’s a couple of things you will learn fairly fast. One, I enjoy half and half in my coffee and not the fake stuff…nope. Two, I like dessert, enough said. Three, I do not enjoy eggs! I will cook with them, but beyond that, I steer clear of them.

Offer me eggnog during the holiday season and I’ll very politely decline. I always buy it during the holidays for my husband but sitting down and enjoying a glass with him is not going to happen. This holiday season I’m changing that with an EASY recipe that calls for NO eggs, basically a faux eggnog. I’ve started referring this to this as “Faux Nog” it sounds super fancy! What this eggless eggnog gives me is a thick and creamy drink with holiday flavors and zero egg.

Now I know there will be haters out there and that’s fine, to each their own. If you enjoy homemade eggnog full of its eggy goodness or store-bought please enjoy. This eggless nog is making my spirits bright this holiday season. I found a couple recipes on the internet, gave them a try and decided the simpler the better IMO. Budget friendly, yummy and customizable too. Yes, customizable! Stay tuned I have a fun variation that’ll be debuting soon.

If you plan on making this ahead of time, that’s fine. Simply refrigerate, when you are serving you may want to add a touch more milk and whisk to gain desired consistency.

In the meantime, here’s my disclaimer…if you use Rum Extract use just a tad I’ve heard it can be overwhelming. I personally either add in good old Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum, just a splash. Enjoy!
