This is such a delicious drink! It was a hit at my holiday party and I will make it again.

Very easy and flavor was good. However consistency was much thinner than traditional egg nog. May try this again with whole milk.

I have been making this for several years. I don't eat eggs but happen to like Eggnog. This was a great alternative. I use Sugar Free Pudding, Xylitol and 1/2&1/2.

As written, the recipe has an eggnog sort of flavor, but it lacks the richness and full breadth of flavor of the real thing. I would never make it again. However, if you double the nutmeg, double the sugar, and replace 1 cup of milk with 1 cup of heavy cream.... *that* is something I will make again and again.

When store bought Eggnog became too expensive, I looked through my old Taste of Home issues to find this. It is so much better than the store bought, I wish I had made it before! And healthier too - use organic milk! We will definately use this again and again!

I have been making this eggnog recipe for several years now and wouldn't make it any other way. It's the best (mock) eggnog recipe I have ever had. I just couldn't make eggnog with eggs and thought that this would be easier and it sure was. It has now become a family favorite.

I don't eat egg or dairy, and soy nog is so expensive and hard to find. This recipe saved my holidays! I used a dairy-free instant pudding and soymilk, and it tasted delicious. I don't know how it compares to real eggnog, but with a shot of rum in it, I'd say this is a pretty satisfying holiday drink on it's own. And I've found it tastes good in tea ;)

I make this recipe every year. It's my go to holiday beverage recipe. Simple to make, delicious and not expensive!! Can't wait to make it again this year!
