Eggnog Milkshake with Peppermint

milkshake eggnog peppermint monstershake delliedelicious donut

My Monster Shake made with eggnog, vanilla ice cream and peppermint! The eggnog is full of Christmas flavors such as cinnamon and nutmeg. I’ve also added some rum to it for an extra kick. This milkshake is a calorie bomb, but who cares when it’s so delicious? It’s a treat for the eye, fun to eat and tastes amazing. 
I made this recipe for a “challenge” that Kverdagsmat is hosting right now. The challenge is about Christmas Spices and I thought that this recipe is a fun way of showing of the delicious spices of Christmas. I just had to add peppermint that screams Christmas for me 🙂
So here it is, my recipe for my Monster Shake with eggnog, vanilla ice cream and peppermint:

Begin by making the eggnog. 
Whisk together egg yolks and sugar in a bowl until airy and pale in color. Set aside.
Add milk, cream, cloves, vanilla pod and seeds, cinnamon stick, ground cinnamon and nutmeg to a saucepan. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Let it cool slightly. Add one fifth of the warm mixture to the egg-mixture and whisk together. Add remaining warm mixture and then transfer this back to the saucepan. On low heat slowly bring the mixture to 80c, stir constantly. Remove from heat and let it cool completely. Add the rum, cover and place in the refrigerator over night.
Whisk egg whites next day and gently fold them into your eggnog.

Assemble your shake:
Put your glass into the fridge so it gets cold. Once cool, rim the glass with melted chocolate and sprinkle with crushed candy cane. Place the glass back into the fridge.
Prepare your ice cream scoops and place them back into the freezer.
Mix eggnog and ice cream in a mug and pour this into your prepared glass. Take out your scoops of ice cream and place them on top of the glass and add candy cane, sprinkles, marshmallows, donut and straw.
And then people, it’s time to dive into this delicious monster shake. Enjoy 🙂
