Pumpkin Eggnog

How can you go wrong combining pumpkin and eggnog?  In my opinion, you can’t! 

This is a delicious, very filling drink that is absolutely perfect for this time of year.  It’s full of protein, healthy fats, and pumpkin (a super-food!) which actually make it a great choice for a special breakfast or mid-afternoon snack.  However and whenever you choose to serve this drink, I hope that you enjoy it as much as we do!

Pumpkin Eggnog

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups whole milk (preferably raw)
  • 2 cups cream (preferably raw)
  • 6 egg yolks (from pastured chickens)
  • 3/4 – 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup pure maple syrup (preferably grade B)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • Whipped cream (optional, for garnish)
  • Additional cinnamon/nutmeg (optional, for garnish)

Preparation:

Combine all ingredients in a blender.  Blend until very smooth.  Chill in the refrigerator for a few hours to get it nice and cold.  Enjoy with whipped cream and cinnamon/nutmeg on top if desired.

Notes:

  • This eggnog is not cooked, so be sure that you use eggs from a safe and reliable source that you trust.
  • This makes around 6 cups eggnog.
  • I used fresh pumpkin puree from a pie pumpkin that I roasted, but canned pumpkin will work as well.
  • Start with the lesser amounts of maple syrup and pumpkin puree.  Taste and add more as desired.
  • This maple syrup from Amazon is the best price that I have found for good quality, grade B maple syrup.  I use the subscribe and save feature to get it for $15.62 for a 32 oz. jug.
