Eggnog Frothed Milk

This eggnog frothed milk is a delicious way to savor the flavors of eggnog without all the hassle!

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.

Eggnog Frothed Milk
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!

I realize this is 2 yrs old now, but under ingredients it has “for the rice”. I got confused for a second thinking there may be a rice pudding recipe mixed in somewhere... but I think it’s supposed to be “for the recipe”?

Haha! Thanks for catching that! Not sure how that phrase got in there...maybe I copied the recipe format from another recipe...? I'll update it!

Would you suggest raw milk for this or almond milk or just regular pasteurized milk?

Definitely raw milk if you can get it! I have found that the best commercial milk in our area is Kalona Supernatural - it's gently pasteurized and non-homogenized. I personally don't care for the flavor of almond milk, but if you like it, go for it!

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

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.
