Recipe for a quick and simple Boozy Chai Blender Eggnog AND Kitchenaid K400 Blender GIVEAWAY!
There are certain ubiquitous Christmas food & beverages, those foods that just really say ‘Christmas’. Those foods that you just can’t imagine enjoying in the midst of summer. Mincemeat Pies are very Christmas-y, as is Fruitcake and Eggnog. AMIRIGHT?
My son and I LOVE eggnog; the holidays just wouldn’t be ‘the holidays’ without it for us. And, while we really typically don’t have the many of the same food loves, not only do we both love eggnog, but we both enjoy a cup of Chai. So, it was only a matter of time before I put these two of our favorite flavors into one beverage.
If you love eggnog AND you love chai, then you will surely love this Chai Blender Eggnog. And while traditional eggnog is good and all, this quick and easy version takes a quarter of the time, start to finish, and is a little lighter than the thick and heavy store-bought eggnog. And if Chai isn’t your thing, but want to give Blender Eggnog a whirl (see what I did there?), simply swap out the spices in this recipe for 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg.
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon ginger
- 1/8 teaspoon cardamom
- pinch ground cloves
- 4 eggs
- 3/4 cup brandy
- Combine sugar and cream in a saucepan
- Add all spices, mix, and heat over low heat until the cream begins to simmer and small bubbles form along the side of the pan
- Put eggs in a blender and blend on medium speed for 1 minute
- While the blender is on medium speed, slowly add cream and blend for another minute.
- Add brandy and mix to just combine.
This blender eggnog is really best when refrigerated for a day or two so that the flavors can meld. The alcohol in the eggnog keeps any nasty bacteria at bay. Further eliminate any concerns by using pasteurized eggs in the eggnog.

How long can you keep Eggnog in the refrigerator or freezer?
The short answer? Fairly long, assuming you have enough booze in it! This article documents the tests that were run on year-old eggnog and the science behind it. In a nutshell, as long as you keep the ratio of 1.5 ounces of alcohol to every raw egg, your eggnog will be safely refrigerated for several weeks. Additionally, using pasteurized eggs is another way to safeguard your blender eggnog.
And as it relates to freezing, eggnog can be made and frozen for up to 6 months.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot about that GIVEAWAY!

Christmas came early for me as I was lucky enough to be recently gifted with 2 K4oo Blenders by Kitchenaid! I like the simple and retro look of the blender and appreciate the power that comes from 1.5 peak hp motor. Three preset settings and 5 additional speed settings allow me to achieve the consistency I want, no matter what I’m blending. So, you may be asking, why did Kitchenaid send me 2 blenders? Well, they want me to send the other to one of my readers so that they can enjoy the holidays with a new blender and this chai blender eggnog as well!
Chime in below, by November 30, with the food or beverage that says ‘Christmas’ to you! If you don’t celebrate Christmas, chime in with your favorite food for your biggest holiday! I will randomly choose 1 commenter to receive a Kitchenaid K400 Blender. This Giveaway is limited to Continental U.S. residents only.
