Eggnog Ice Cream
My son had to have a tooth pulled and was on soft foods for a week or so. One of his favorite things was for me to make him an eggnog in the blender – 2 cups of fresh milk, 2 eggs, a few drops of stevia, a little vanilla and a bit of nutmeg – so good and it kept him very nourished while he healed.
I love eggnog and decided I wanted to make and eggnog ice cream. Found a great recipe in the Ben and Jerry Ice cream book that I adapted. Easy to make (no cooking) and delicious – enjoy!
2 cups organic heavy cream
1 cup fresh organic milk
2 whole organic eggs
8 pastured organic egg yolks (you can freeze the whites – I made macaroons)
¾ cup sweetener of your choice – I use non-GMO erythritol
½ tsp nutmeg
Whisk the eggs and egg yolks until light and fluffy – for one to two minutes. Add sweetener and whisk together.
Add milk and cream and nutmeg and whisk until combined.
Pour into ice cream maker and follow instructions. Enjoy!
