Egg-Nog Ice Cream

(update:  forgot to mention that I have a cool giveaway coming up - not one of my books either!)

Uh huh.  I realize we are past the holidays.  But, doesn't this look wicked good?!

And, if you have a love for anything egg-noggy as I do, you may have stocked up on those Vitasoy Holly Nogs when they were on special during Christmas.  Or, maybe you I snatched just one last "Noel Nog" last week because its expiry date wasn't until February.

Funny, I don't drink soy milks normally.  But give me 'noel nog' or that Vitasoy Peppermint Chocolate milk and I'm in there!  (and that Peppermint Chocolate milk is amazing warmed up for hot chocolate if you still have some of those in your pantry - tote it in your travel mug in the car!)

Back to the ice cream.   If you have some soy nog in your fridge or cupboard looking back at you, work it into my Egg Nog Ice Cream.  You'll need a blender to puree the milk with some other ingredients.  I use my Blendtec (man, I love that machine!), and then you pour the mix into your ice cream maker.  As I mention in my t/s article (that's all about ice cream luvin'), I use the ice cream attachment to the Kitchenaid stand mixer.  Very handy!

And, that's a new caramel sauce gorgeously clinging on to the egg-nog ice cream.  Maybe I'll get that recipe posted for you too.  It's SO good - and easy to make.  Get your spoons ready, folks!

Oh no! Now how am I supposed to stick to this "eat less sugar" plan?

Just a question: the Amazon site says Blendtec has a polycarbonite jar. I didn't know what that meant and googled it and polycarbonite is a plastic that is made with Bisphenol-A, a number 7. Wouldn't that be counter to healthy foods? Do they make one with a glass jar?

This looks so tasty!

LDM Flagg, that's odd, the jug that I have is BPA free. I'm not certain if they have a glass jar, and I'll check my link again to see if there's another to one with a glass jar, and/or the BPA free jar - maybe this link is for an older version of the the Blendtec jar. (The current one boldly shows "BPA free") Will look into it.

Thanks everyone!

please, please, please post the recipe for the caramel sauce! I've been looking for a good recipe for so long and have been disappointed every time!

Dreena said...

LDM Flagg, getting back to you about the BPA issue. I e-mailed Blendtec, and they explained that they discontinued the polycarbonate jars as of last August because of health concerns, and every jar they sell now is BPA free. They don't sell glass jars for the machines.

ooohhh that looks good - LOVE egg nog and am always a little sad that flavor disappears after the holidays. But maybe not...

You can do a soft-serve version if you just use your x-nog & some ice + the Ice Crush button!
