Eggnog Frothed Milk | Buttered Side Up
Eggnog is Reuben's favorite thing to drink. He usually doesn't get super excited (at least on the outside) about food, but I can tell that he is thrilled when eggnog starts appearing in the stores in November.

If I were a really good wifey, I would make him some of my delicious homemade eggnog so he wouldn't have to buy the expensive (albeit scrumptious) stuff from the store. But I have been ever-so-busy this Christmas season, and I just haven't made the time to make any.

Eggnog Frothed Milk
Instead, we've been enjoying a new creation of mine: eggnog frothed milk! It has the lovely flavors of eggnog, but you can whip it up in a few minutes. It's creamy and spicy at the same time. And it doesn't contain any eggs, so you don't have to worry about making kids sick with raw eggs.

Helen LOVES it.

Merry Christmas to you all!

  1. The recipe reads 1/4 teaspoon organic vanilla extract twice. Is it supposed to read 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon organic vanilla extract? Sounds wonderful for all of us eggnog lovers.

    1. Oops! Yes, it's supposed to be ground nutmeg, not vanilla twice. Thanks for pointing out the error! :)
