Eggnog Shake Recipe
When I was making this Eggnog milkshake all I could think about was how jealous I was of anyone living in an area that is warm right now.
It has been snowing on and off the past few days and we are due for more snow later this week. While I love the idea of a white Christmas I also love the idea of not shoveling snow and walking on the beach at Christmas.
So much so that I started looking at houses in places that don't get snow. Until that becomes a reality I am going to keep whipping out fun new eggnog recipes.
This eggnog shake can be made with or without booze. It is up to you if you want to add in a bit of extra flavor to your milkshake.
We have been on such a fun eggnog recipe spree! I bought eggnog from Costco and the 2 containers are a lot bigger than I thought they would be. oops! I challenged myself to make as many different recipes as I could think of with eggnog while we still had some in the fridge.
Pretty sure I am going to end up with between 6 and 10 new eggnog recipes depending on how the ones I am testing out later today turn out.
Kids will love this shake! While the McDonald's Eggnog Shake is a limited time offer you can make this beverage anytime you want!
- Vanilla Ice Cream
- Whipped Cream
Garnish - Ground Nutmeg or you can try Maraschino Cherry, Cinnamon Stick, gingersnap cookies, a sprinkle of cinnamon, or a chocolate drizzle.
French Vanilla Ice Cream - You can use any brand of vanilla ice cream that you have available. If you want to change up the flavor you can use chocolate ice cream to make a chocolate eggnog milkshake. Vanilla gelato would make an epic shake!
Eggnog - This can be made with store-bought or homemade eggnog.
Whipped Cream - You can use store-bought whipped cream or go all-in with our eggnog whipped cream.
Blender - We use a Ninja Blender and absolutely LOVE it!
Cute milkshake glasses - We like to serve this eggnog shake in a chilled glass. Just stick the glass in the freezer while you are making the milkshake.
