Eggnog Smoothie

Eggnog Smoothie

Eating new foods is always an experience; sometimes it goes really well, and other times – not so much. For example, after my friend from Columbia made me taste a couple of Chocolate Covered Ants (a delicacy in his country,) I had to excuse myself for a few minutes. But when I tried PB&J sandwich a few years back, I surprised myself at how much I liked that combo.

So I decided to challenge myself again with a never-before-tried Eggnog. I was born in a country that has never heard of a sweet-tasting cocktail of whipped raw eggs and so I stayed away from the Holiday Drink for about 25 years.

Actually, it was exactly 24 years and 9 months after first stepping my foot in America, that I received a new cookbook. On page 208, there was a recipe of an Eggnog Smoothie. Okay, I thought. Even though this isn’t a real Eggnog, the author claims that it tastes like one, uses kefir as a base and contains NO raw eggs  – I can do that. Finally, my chance to know what this cocktail tastes like.

I liked it. It tasted creamy and rich. Like custard, but thinner and smoother. Not overly sweet. And it smelled like holidays, family and joy.

To add a bit of a special touch to the smoothie, add a little Hennessy to the mix. A shot or two will do the trick :)
