If you love eggnog, then this yummy boozy Eggnog Milkshake recipe is a must try. And here’s the thing, you don’t need to include the boozy part, which makes it perfect for family celebrations and eggnog fans of all ages.
My grandparents always made it with the booze, so this was a drink just for the adults, but my kids love eggnog – so we actually make this more often without the whiskey than we do with it.
The best part about this eggnog milkshake is how easy it is to make!
