Safe Egg Nog Milkshake + Inspiring Monday


Just a few ingredients and you can create the milkshake version of everyone’s favorite holiday drink, eggnog. This recipe is nonalcoholic and completely safe for all ages (aside from those allergic to said ingredients).  This creamy and delicious recipe will make around 20 servings so halve the recipe if you’re cooking for a smaller crowd (see our How to Halve a Recipe cheat sheet).  I hope you enjoy this family recipe.

Egg Nog Ingredients

Start by using PASTEURIZED eggs.  **Don’t miss this!**  If they aren’t pasteurized you’re putting yourself and your guests at risk for salmonella.  Pasteurized eggs cost a bit more but it’s a small price to pay for peace of mind…and is still cheaper than a milkshake you’d buy anywhere else.  Once you buy pasteurized eggs this milkshake is as safe as drinking milk.

Separating Egg Whites

Divide the egg from the yoke.  Look at my husband’s superb egg dividing skills!

Pouring Sugar

This is my little girl helping add the sugar.  She didn’t feel well and we thought a milkshake treat would help take her mind off of her sickness.

Mixing Bowl

Just whipped egg whites and sugar.  …and a partially rusted wisk.  Ignore that.

Helping in the Kitchen

My little helper is pouring the half and half into the combined whipped egg whites and whipped egg yolks.

Ice Cream

After that has all been mixed by hand it’s time to add the ice cream.  We’ve made this a time or two ten and we like it best when we use really cold, just from the freezer ice cream.


Then beat with a hand mixer till you get the milkshake consistency you want.  You can sprinkle nutmeg or cinnamon on top to your liking but we often enjoy it without either.

Girl with milkshake

She loves it!  And I hope you do too!  I know it’s a little after the holidays but it’s still a great time to enjoy an egg nog milkshake.

  3. Stephanie Keeping says

    This would be great for next Christmas.

  4. Robin Masshole Mommy says

    That sounds absolutely delicious. I love eggnog and can’t believe I never even had any this past holiday season.

  5. This sounds so yummy! I can’t wait to give this a try. I really like that everything is cooked, so there’s no chance of getting sick!

  6. I LOVE eggnog. I never made my own, but I’d love to try this one. It looks wonderful!

  7. That looks so delicious! I don’t usually like egg nog, but I feel like this recipe is for me.

  8. I’ve never been a huge fan of eggnog unless it has a lot of rum. The thought of drinking eggs whether pasturized or not makes my stomach queasy.

  9. YUM-eeeeeee This looks so good. I would add a bit of rum extract (or rum if the time was right) for a little bit of extra flavor.

  10. I’ve never had eggnog either, mainly because I don’t drink alcohol. I can’t wait to try this fun recipe. Anything with ice cream is right up my alley.

  11. Catherine S says

    This looks really good. I love Eggnog, but I can’t drink it due to allergies. I will have to make this for my husband and son.

  12. now that is an eggnog drink I can get behind! It sounds absolutely delicious and I love that you used Pasteurized eggs for the safety.

  13. This looks so good! Anything made with that much ice cream has to be good.

  14. I think my husband would love this!

  15. This looks and sounds so good. I love that it is safe for everyone!

  17. Oh my stars does this look delicious! I bet it was a hit at all of your holiday get togethers!

  18. Mmmm, looks pretty tasty. My cousin makes some every Christmas but I’ve never tried. This does look good though, I may have to give this a shot. Thank you for sharing.

  19. My son tried egg nog for the first time last month. He said he liked it a lot. I’ll recommend this yummy shake to him!

  20. My husband and kids would LOVE this milkshake. Pinning for later! (Are pasteurized eggs sold next to ‘regular’ eggs?)

  21. Oh I love me some egg nog and nothing beats Blue Bell Ice cream! This looks so yummy!

  34. I once tried to make my own egg nog, & failed…lol This recipe seems way better!

  35. I’ve always been a chicken to make my own eggnog because I fear it would taste nasty or I would mess it up and make us all sick! Ha-ha you make it look easy. I do love a good glass of egg nog though.

  52. I have never tried eggnog! There is just something about raw eggs that creeps me right out!
