  1. sounds easy but does it really taste like the real thing? i’ll have to try it find out. i’ll feel like a fool for paying for the store version if it does.

    • I made this today. Has an egg nog flavor. But not as robust as store purchased. Store purchased is made with heavy cream or half and half. To boost the flavor you can make with the milk I mentioned and also add eggs when making. I enjoy egg nog so will keep the mix handy and just make with a different milk. This mixture is great as a coffee creamer.

  2. I’m not a fan of Buttermilk in any form. Either way I just might try this smaller version. I’m looking for an easy mix for sharing.


  3. I have tried to make this taste good. My grandson loves eggnog. It still is not tasting like eggnog. 😞. If anyone gets it to taste good let us know please.😥

    • That’s kind of strange, which recipe did you try, the big version or the small version? I made the small version using french vanilla pudding mix (jello brand) and added a pinch of cinnamon to it and when I blended it with ice cubes it tasted exactly like eggnog. What brand of eggnog do you tend to buy?
