Thanks for making my day by SHARING!!

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.

 

Boozy Chai Blender Eggnog

Boozy Chai Blender Eggnog

Yield: 16 ounces
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 2 minutes
Blend Time: 2 minutes
Total Time: 6 minutes

Light and Boozy Chai Blender Eggnog

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. Combine sugar and cream in a saucepan
  2. 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
  3. Put eggs in a blender and blend on medium speed for 1 minute
  4. While the blender is on medium speed, slowly add cream and blend for another minute.
  5. Add brandy and mix to just combine.

Notes

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.

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.

    The one food that says Christmas to me is my Mom’s Twenty-Four Hour Salad. You know, the one with the marshmallow-egg-lemon juice base and filled with halved and seeded Globe grapes (it was always my job to remove the grape pits!) and pineapple and oh my gosh it is decadent. Very labor intensive! We always ate it along with the meal but some people consider it a dessert. Mom only made it for the holidays!!!

    Fudge! My grandmother made it, my mom makes it, and of course I’m making it for my children! It just wouldn’t seem like Christmas if we didn’t have a bite or two ( or more!) of delicious, rich fudge.

    We always have a sausage strata for brunch on Christmas morning. Since it’s made the evening before and just has to be popped into the oven a half hour or so before we plan to eat, it doesn’t get in the way of watching the grandchildren open their presents.

      I do love that Chai at Starbucks too! If you like thinner eggnog, then you will like this one. Not nearly as thick as the storebought kind.

    I love the old traditions for the holidays and nothing is more Christmasy than good old sugar cookies. To me, they say Christmas is here, with their many shapes, sprinkles, sparkles and icing they become so many memories to bite into and enjoy. Not the best for you but, hey, it’s Christmas only once a year!

      Christmas cookies are absolutely ubiquitous with Christmas…how could you possibly celebrate the holidays without all the festive sugar cookies. And, decorating the cookies is as important as eating them.

    Spiced cider is a favorite but living in the south doesn’t give us enough cold days to really enjoy it too much so eggnog is totally the go to drink that speaks Christmas.

    My favorite holiday food is a really terrific Pumpkin Date Bread. I’ve been making it for 47 years. In recent years, the chopped dates I used to buy ( in a box) are no longer available ( even on Amazon). No matter: I’m trying to adjust. Cutting whole dates in half seems to be the best substitute.
    This recipe was in military wives cookbook from Mrs. Joan Mondale ( anyone remember her?). Anyway, it IS The best of its kind. My daughter loves it.
    Hope I can fond the energy to make it !

    My favorite holiday drink is vin chaud. It is spiced mulled wine and it seems many countries have their own version: Swedish glögg and German glühwein. I first tried vin chaud when I visited Paris many years ago during Christmas and tasted it at the Christmas markets. I now make it every Christmas. It makes our house smell so good and it tastes just wonderful. I wonder if I could made a blender version!! Probably not!

      Hi Lori! I love a mulled wine, but ‘vin chaud’ is much fancier. And as much as I’d be tempted to put it in the blender…I’m not sure.

    Yumyyyyy! I love Chai tea and will try this! I am from the Caribbean and one item that CANT be missed during the holiday is our Coquito drink. Most American people that try it says it tastes like a coconut egg nog? And yes… a blender is NICE to have. SO far I have done my stuff with a whisker. 🙂

    2 cans evaporated milk
    2 cans of cream of coconut
    1 can condense milk
    1 tsp. de vanilla
    2 cups de white rum Don Q (optional)
    Cinammon powder to taste
    2 sticks of cinammon (use this to put them in the bottle)
    You only have to mix all ingredients and put them in a bottle, add the cinammon sticks and ready to go! You will need to prepare this ahead of time so the flavors will mix and age nicely. Keep refrigerated. This is the quickie , easy version. My family prepares the long version with means milking the coconut and stuff.
