Blog ‘Bout Nog….

In honor of Christmas and my Cuisinart Frozen Yogurt, Ice Cream and Sorbet Maker GIVEAWAY, I decided to create an ice cream flavor bursting with holiday joy and cheer. What screams Christmas more than Eggnog?

…Confession…

I have never actually had Eggnog.
BUT, that is a minor detail we should choose to overlook at this moment!

My grand inspiration struck when I saw a quart of Silk Soy Nog at the grocery store. Why not, right?
I mean, crazier things have been tried (ie. Strawberry Kefir Sorbet).

Vegan Eggnog Ice Cream
(how oxymoronic does that sound?!)


Ingredients:
– 13.5 oz. can Coconut Milk, full fat
– 13.5 oz. Silk Eggnog
– 1/4 cup Light Brown Sugar
– 1/8 cup Sugar
– 1 tablespoon Cinnamon
– 1 teaspoon Nutmeg
– 1/2 teaspoon Cloves
– 1/4 teaspoon Xanthum Gum
– 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Combine ingredients in a blender.
Freeze blender canister for 30 – 60 minutes.
Pour mixture into your Cuisinart Frozen Yogurt, Ice Cream and Sorbet Maker.
Process according to manufacturer’s instructions. I processes 25 minutes.
Scoop ice cream into a freezer safe, glass container and allow to harden to desired consistency and garnish with a sprinkle of nutmeg, or garnish with a Vegan Gingerbread Bear, before serving.

Now what are you waiting for? Click here to enter for a chance to win your very own Cuisinart Frozen Yogurt, Ice Cream and Sorbet Maker.

Are you ready for Christmas? Do you have any more presents to pick up/make or are you all set? I did most of my gift buying online… at the last minute. Now, I am at the mercy of the US Postal Service! Here’s hoping and praying the snow storms don’t stop the mail!

  1. Eggnog is just one of those things, either you love it or you hate it. I fall into that latter group with regard to all things eggnog. But your give away is sure going to brighten someone's day on Friday. Don't include me I have one with two containers but I could use a tip or two on getting the ice cream or sorbet out of the container. I seem to waste so much that is frozen solid to the container that I simply can't scrape off.

  2. Oh man, oh man, does this sound delicious! I just recently became a new Cuisinart ice cream maker myself and am loving it. Only have used it 2x so far but it really makes all the difference for homemade ice cream! Such great fun–this weekend I did a cinnamon-graham cracker ice cream and it's SO good. I'm loving your noggin' though! 😉 Happy holidays 🙂
