To prepare: 5 minutes

Cooking time : 6 minutes

Serves : 1.25 L vanilla eggnog with probiotics

Refrigeration : 4 hours

Culinary tools : Vitamix or other high-powered blender*.

Ingredients

Approach

  1. Place the eggs, cane sugar and rum in the Vitamix liquid container. Turn to maximum power and cook for 4 minutes.
  2. Add milk, spices and vanilla essence. Blend at high power for 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Refrigerate eggnog.

*Using a Vitamix brand blender allows you to reach a higher temperature, which ensures that the eggs are cooked. If you use another type of blender, the eggs may remain raw.
