Egg Nog Ice Cream

I was excited when I found this recipe over at Foodie with Family.  My husband is a huge eggnog fan.  He always looked forward to when McDonalds would bring out their seasonal eggnog milkshake.  They stopped offering that a couple of years back and he has been disappointed each year when he would check to see if they were offering them again.

He was very excited when I presented him this Eggnog Ice Cream.  I love when after 30 years I can still occasionally surprise him.

I had to smile at how excited he was with such little effort on my part. Five Ingredients and Five Minutes and you too can surprise your family with this seasonal treat.

  1. Ohhh I love this idea! This sounds like such a perfect creamy treat for the Holiday season!

  2. Delicious idea and agree that ice cream can be had anytime.

  3. I don't even care if it's freezing cold outside, I would have a bowl of this ice cream in heartbeat!

  4. I adore egg nog ice cream. When we were little, leftover eggnog was frozen and made into ice cream. Now there isn't any left!

    1. You might just have to get some just to make this recipe. Happy Holidays Terri.

  5. Ice Cream + Egg Nog = OH MY!! Can't wait to try this!

  6. Edy's used to sell eggnog ice cream. Now I can just make my own.
