Easy Coconog Shot

How many of you know that the ingredients used to make ice cream are the same ingredients used to make eggnog???

MIND BLOWN RIGHT?

Y’all know I am here for a good shortcut and I couldn’t let the season go by without hooking #TeamGreedy up with good one. That being said, all of us have a carton of ice cream in the fridge which means we have access eggnog in just minutes.

WE CAN NOW remove one item from that extensive grocery list and maybe get out of those holiday grocery lines a little bit quicker. So no more separating eggs and whisking into a custard for me (“from scratch” eggnoggers will know what I’m talking about).

And seriously, how many times have you purchased a bottle of eggnog only to see it still sitting there long after the holidays have come and gone? [HAND RAISED HIGH] At least this way you can make it self serve by the glass with no waste. Instead, we should all be using this holiday shortcut using French vanilla for homemade spiked eggnog which only uses 4 ingredients and is done in 4 minutes. 

And below, because I’m feeling generous, I’m also sharing 3 more recipes using 4 ingredients for a total of 4 WAYS you can doctor up your homemade, no hassle, eggnog. I started each recipe using the French vanilla ice cream base that you see in the video above. So simple, so easy.

Blackberry Kefir Smoothie

Blackberry Kefir Smoothie

What a week! So if you didn’t read my previous blog post I will catch you up on the week’s festivities.  After being swept away by the Kendrick Lamar Grammy performance I decided to restructure my content and recipe development this week to pay homage to his song “The Blacker The Berry”.  As a result blackberries took the spotlight this week and boy did they shine in these four new recipes.

Blackberry Kefir Smoothie - If you haven't tried Kefir you haven't lived life. In this smoothie it adds a creamy tartness that goes perfect with blackberries.

I was recently introduced to kefir, which is a yogurt like probiotic drink that offers superior health benefits. What’s even better is that the beneficial yeast and bacteria in kefir make it digestible for the lactose intolerant.  When added with blackberries, mint and banana you get the perfect start to any day.
