Eggnog Milkshake Tips

What does eggnog taste like?

Thick and creamy, eggnog tastes like spice-flavored milk. Traditional eggnog usually consists of egg yolks, sugar, heavy whipping cream, milk, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla.

How do you thicken a milkshake?

You can thicken this milkshake recipe by adding another scoop of vanilla ice cream, substituting heavy whipping cream for the milk (like classic eggnog!) or blending crushed ice cubes into the milkshake mixture.
