Obviously this had to be an egg-y inspired recipe today. However, in my family we’re not too keen on actual eggs in our ‘nog. So what to do? This quick and simple eggless ‘nog recipe has all the flavor you’re looking for without any weird “I just drank eggs wtf” experience. It does contain milk products, however, so is not vegan-friendly. Replacing the milk with soy or rice milk works quite nicely, though I’m not sure about any milk replacements with stronger flavors.
1 (3.5 ounce) package instant French vanilla pudding
1 1/2 quarts milk
2 1/2 teaspoons rum flavored extract
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
In a large bowl, combine the pudding mix with 2 cups of milk, following package directions; allow to chill for 5 minutes.
To the pudding stir in the rum flavoring and spices, then slowly mix in the remaining 4 cups of milk until the mixture is a thick but drinkable consistency. Chill until ready to serve. Garnish with freshly ground nutmeg.
Told you it was quick and easy!
