Instant Pot Eggnog
Everyone tends to have a bit of a hankering for that eggnog taste and flavor once the colder months of the year start happening. This easy eggnog recipe is so simple once you realize that your Instant Pot is going to be doing all the "hard" work.
What does eggnog taste like?
Don't worry, I can assure you that it tastes nothing like an egg. In fact, it reminds me of a bit of a milkshake even a custard-like texture as well. It's a slow sipper that has a bit of thickness to it but it's typically very sweet.
How to Make Instant Pot Eggnog
Start by pouring 5 cups of water into your Instant Pot. Once that is done, turn it on saute mode. This will give your Instant Pot time to heat up. Make certain to place the trivet on the inside of the Instant Pot as well.
Grab a blender and blend the eggs for 30 seconds or so.
Put in the sugar and blend. Blend with the eggs for about 30 seconds until mixed well.
Once mixed well, go ahead and put in the rest of the ingredients.
After all the ingredients are blended well, put the mixture into a large bowl that you can put inside the Instant Pot.
Take the bowl and add it to your Instant Pot on your trivet.
The eggnog is going to warm up and you need to be whisking it often.
This will be the process until the eggnog reaches an internal temperature of 155 degrees. Once it reaches that temp, press cancel and select the warm setting on the Instant Pot. Continue to whisk the eggnog mixture until the temp of the eggnog reaches 160 degrees.
Continue to whisk on the warm setting until your eggnog reaches 160°. Once that temperature is achieved, press cancel. Take a ladle and scoop out the eggnog mixture and put it into a container that can be sealed with a lid.
Leave the eggnog sitting out on the counter until room temperature is reached. Once that happens, put it in the fridge to cool.
Once the mixture is cooled completely, pour it into a cup and top with nutmeg and whipped cream. Enjoy!
What alcohol is in eggnog?
There are some eggnogs that do have alcohol in them but this isn't one of them! The most common kind of alcohol that you'll find in homemade eggnog is brandy or rum.
Can you use eggnog as a coffee creamer?
For sure! And what a fun idea! If you're ready to add some fun and festive holiday taste to your eggnog, bottle it up and add a dash (or two) to your cup of coffee every single day. You'll get so many good swigs of eggnog that way!
Can eggnog be frozen for later use?
It can be. Just cook it up and put it into a freezer-safe container for later. It should be good for several months without issue and should unthaw just fine. Just write the date on the outside of the container so that you know when you added it to the freezer.
