MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 17, 2012

This was excellent! Much better than the store bought eggnog and easy to make too. I used fat-free milk, further lowering the fat content. YUM!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 8, 2010

I found this recipe in the back of a Guidepost book around five years ago. I'm was never an eggnog person. I started making this orginally for my special needs son, but has become a family favorite since the first time I made it. This morning my son asked me to make eggnog, and make it good!! So I am going to start my eggnog earlier this year. When he gets home from school, he'll have this treat. You have got to try it.

We couldn't believe how much this tastes like the real thing! I used Almond Milk instead of the 2%, which is another reduction in calories but still has enough fat content to make it creamy. Will definitely be passing this recipe on.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 7, 2009

I have been making this recipe from my Light and Tasty cookbook for several years. It is easy to make if you are patient and careful not to scorch. Very tasty! It has become a family favorite for those who enjoy eggnog. My husband has already requested it and it is just after Thanksgiving so I am glad to find the recipe online as I do not have my cookbook nearby.
