Easy Eggnog Ice Cream

Easy Eggnog Ice Cream


"Knowing that a custard ice cream base uses a cooked custard, and because commercial eggnog is cooked and thick in a similar way, I decided to try making ice cream with eggnog by adding cream and milk. The result is this wonderful light and creamy eggnog-flavored ice cream. It makes one quart plus."

Outstanding flavor and easy to make can't beat it.

This was a little bland. I used fat free half and half and used a light eggnog. Could be why it was bland and definetly not as rich. I liked it much better after I added 1/4 teaspoon of rum extr...

This recipe is NOT good. Its way too bland, because there's not enough sugar. My whole family could only eat one bitet. So I started over and made allrecipes' "No-Cook Eggnog Ice Cream" instead ...

This stuff was amazing! Wish I had used an instant custard mix instead of the instant pudding mix though (for the flavor). The ice cream turned out creamy, flavorful and delicious!

This was ok. I followed the recipe to a T and added chocolate chips at the end of freezing. It was ok, but it was pretty bland. I wish I had read the first review listed and added some vanilla, ...

The flavor of the icecream depends on the quality of the egg nog. I used some that was made at the dairy creamery that also makes ice cream. It was left over because I forgot we had it. I did ...

Way too bland and got crystallized since there's no alcohol in the recipe. It needs at least the alcohol in a teaspoon of vanilla extract! I made a second batch with a tablespoon of bourbon an...
