Old-Fashioned Egg Nog

Pictured: A shamrock drink, not unlike the ‘nog.

Egg nog isn’t the reason for the season, but it is the delicious, chilled icing in the glass.

The most scrumptious Leann sent me her recipe for this delicious and easy beverage that might just double for a protein smoothie any day of the year!

Note: Because raw egg is used, obviously this recipe isn’t going to be for everyone, particularly those with weakened immune systems due to pregnancy, youth, older age, illness, or other physical conditions and reasons.

  3. Use the best, local, pastured eggs you can get for the best flavor!!

    Ideally, use raw cream, too – NUMMMMMMM
