Eggnog Milkshake Tips

What does eggnog taste like?

Thicky 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 the milk for heavy whipping cream (like classic eggnog!) or by blending crushed ice cubes into the milkshake mixture.

    I was also wondering how it is possible to add up to 7g fat. I keep a close eye on calories and fat intake and was pleased with this recipe , however am curious where you fat grams came from?
