Holiday Milkshakes!

I am not a huge fan of milk shakes, but I am in love with anything egg nog! That's why this milk shake is one I can definitely enjoy this Christmas. It's made with really good, rich and thick egg nog, some creamy, dreamy tasting ice cream, homemade whipped cream and a liberal sprinkling of nutmeg. It's perfect for a special treat, or just a family night together!
Holiday Eggnog Shakes!
(makes 1 large shake or 2 small)
1 to 1 1/2 cups Egg Nog
Natural Vanilla Ice Cream
1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
2 tablespoon Confectioners Sugar
Dash of Nutmeg
Make your whipped cream first. Pour the heavy whipping
cream into a mixing bowl, and add the confectioners sugar.
Start mixing using the whisk beater attachment.
Keep the speed on low until the sugar is incorporated
into the cream. Then continue mixing on high until
fairly stiff peaks are formed.
It should look like this! Place in fridge until your
shake is finished.
Start filling a container you can mix your shake in.
Fill it about 1/2 full with ice cream.
Add your nog.
Start mixing the egg nog and ice cream together.
I like to do this with a fork.
You could also use an immersion blender.
If it seems too thick, just add some egg nog, or you can
even add a little bit of milk.
Pour into your glass, leaving a little 
 room for the whipped cream.
Dust the top with nutmeg.
Add whipped cream and enjoy!
Happy Holidays!
