Lazy Homemade Egg Nog — a recipe that’s so easy you won’t believe it!
I’ve been loving eggnog since I was a little girl. Boy, was I thrilled when I found this recipe for eggnog bundt cakes.
Almost heaven right there.
So when I discovered an eggnog recipe that was ready in literally minutes and required no cooking, I was all in!
And if you’re a huge eggnog fan, but want a lazy, almost done-for-you recipe, read on, fellow egg nog friend. Read on.
Our family moved to SE Asia about ten years ago.
I know you probably could care less, but it does have something to do with this recipe!
In SE Asia, I could not find my favorite holiday drink.
Which holiday drink is my fave? You guessed it (because you’re incredibly smart..;0)..egg nog.
And most homemade versions just didn’t hit the spot.
But last week, something happened.
Another American who was living abroad, shared her story of trying to make the perfect cup of egg nog.
The only thing was her recipe required cooking.
But, she said one line that made me think.
Her words were, “It’s basically vanilla pudding that’s watered down and spiced up.”
Whoa…stop the bus.
Could it really be that simple?
Can Homemade Egg Nog Be This Easy?
I ventured to ask her.
“Do you think it would work with instant pudding mix?”
She had no idea, but this busy mom was willing to give it a whirl.
And that was when life changed for this eggnog fan.
I could barely wait to pour my homemade egg nog over a glass of ice (Because I’m weird and like egg nog with ice.)
I could smell all the familiar flavors I craved during the holidays…
In seconds, my kids were racing into the kitchen begging for egg nog.
We all sipped, guzzled and smiled as we wiped our egg nog mustaches.
We should have waited and topped it with homemade whipped cream, but our egg nog addictions overcame us. ;0)
Next, we tried an almond milk version. Same recipe, just substituted the almond milk for the regular milk.
Ad, we even did a sugar free version by using sugar free instant pudding.
There are so many options!
And, I bet you’ll find all the egg nog flavors you love in this egg nog cheesecake recipe that’s been calling my name. Let me know if you try it too!
Now my teens will drink it because they no it doesn’t have raw egg in it.
They’re finnicky like that.
During the Christmas and holiday season, don’t stress about the perfect holiday drink.
Instead, make this incredibly, lazy version that everyone will absolutely love!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
