Easiest Eggnog Ice Cream

December 19, 2011

It doesn’t get any easier than this!  This recipe contains a whopping 2 ingredients.  Can you guess =)?  Eggnog and sugar.  One day I was sitting their wanting ice cream, and since it’s eggnog season I thought eggnog ice cream sounded good.  So, I was trying to decide what ingredients I would make it with.  Often when I am trying to mimic the flavors of something I look at the ingredients listed on the package of whatever I’m trying to mimic.

Eggnog ingredients are very similar to ice cream ingredients.  You’ve got your cream, milk, sugar and egg yolks.  Which led me to, why not just use eggnog, rather than using a whole list of ingredients, making a custard and allowing it time to cool before processing.

This is probably the easiest thing I have ever made, next to toast.  I love the simplicity of this recipe.  And it tastes exactly like eggnog, imagine that =).  I thought the eggnog did need a bit more sugar but if you don’t like your ice cream as sweet as I do only add as much as you’d like.
