Eggnog Ice-Cream

‘Tis the season for Eggnog.

In the past, I’ve made my own, which is a delicious beverage, but this year I’ve discovered another way to enjoy this Christmas treat—Eggnog Ice-Cream.

It sounds fancy but is, in fact, ultra-easy: it only takes 5 ingredients and 5 minutes of prep time.

Plus, you can tailor the recipe to your tastes: if you want it lusciously rich, use cream. For not so decadent, sub in half-and-half. Vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon? One or all is up to you. You could even sneak in a dash of rum or brandy for an adult-only version.

I found my Donvier ice-cream maker at a thrift store, and it’s one of the best kitchen gadgets I didn’t know I needed. I’ve used it more than my neglected Italian pasta maker.

You can buy electric models, but I find something oddly satisfying about hand-churning whilst watching the transformation take place. Think of it as an upper arm exercise. Once you taste homemade ice-cream, you won’t be tempted by store-bought anymore.

Despite having 101 cookbooks, I found the recipe online here.

Don’t have an ice-cream maker?
It’s not too late to ask Santa.
Or there’s always Amazon.
