Eggnog Frappuccino

If you know me then you know I’m a kind of obsessed with coffee.  I’m also a huge fan of eggnog so it only made sense that I try to combine both loves into one fabulous iced beverage. This is my home made version of Starbucks’ Eggnog Frappuccino.  However, you don’t need to spend a lot of money on it and you don’t need any fancy syrups.  You only need a few simple ingredients to enjoy this holiday twist on a frappuccino.

Eggnog Frappuccino Recipe
(Serves 1)

Ingredients:

  • 1 heaping tablespoon instant coffee (I used Nescafe)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 and 1/2 cups ice
  • 1/2 cup eggnog (I used Hood Golden Eggnog)
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Directions:

  1.  Put the instant coffee and water in a blender and mix until well combined.
  2. Add in the ice, eggnog, and nutmeg into a blender and mix until everything is smooth.

 

Since the stores only sell eggnog this time of the year, we simply must have it in our home. After all, it’s the time of year to indulge.  My husband and I love to sip this luscious drink in each other’s company with our lit tree and roaring fire in the fireplace.

I haven’t baked with eggnog (at least not yet), but I wanted to turn a traditional glass of eggnog into a coffee wonderland beverage.

The eggnog is a subtle flavor (but definitely present) in this frozen coffee beverage.  Plus, it makes it taste extra creamy.  It’s almost like drinking an awesome coffee milkshake!  I may like my warm soups this time of the year, but I never give up my ice cream and iced coffees.     🙂

I think fresh ground nutmeg is the only way to go with eggnog because it tastes way better than the pre-ground stuff (but that will work too, of course).  I topped my eggnog frappuccino with a small dollop of whipped cream and sprinkled additional ground nutmeg on top.  My preference for fresh ground whole nutmeg is something I picked up from my husband.  For him, it was just what he always had available for eggnog as a kid.

    I’m obsessed with coffee too, Tina, so this looks absolutely delicious to me! I gave up ordering those pricey drinks at Starbucks, but I love making them at home. Pinning!

      If I order a coffee from a shop, it’s usually the cheapest plain one on the menu. I simply can’t justify spending that much money on the fancy ones. But I do crave them so I’m always trying to create ones at home. Thanks for pinning! 🙂

        Could I use milk instead of water? Please reply soon.

        1. Tina says:

          Yes. It will just make it more creamy.

  2. So I’m sitting here sipping on my iced coffee that I literally just poured eggnog into, and now I just wish it was this frappuccino instead.

    1. Tina says:

      Haha! Next time, my friend. But I love that you had an iced version. 🙂

  3. Oh wow this sounds sensational 🙂

    1. Tina says:

      Thanks so much! 🙂

  4. I literally gasped when I saw this in my Bloglovin feed. You just combined my two favorite drinks into one! I cannot wait to try this! P.S. I nominated you for the Sunshine Award – you don’t have to participate, just wanted to let you know I love your blog!

    1. Tina says:

      Wow, a gasp?! Love it. 🙂 From the bottom of my heart, I’m so honored that you nominated me and that you love my blog! Your continued support means the world to me! 🙂

  5. I definitely love sipping on warm beverages this time of the year, but I can’t say no to frozen treats either. Specially if they look as delish as this one… gosh it looks so so perfect!
    Have a great week! xo

      Thanks Consuelo! 🙂

  6. Around the holidays, I live for eggnog! 🙂 Especially eggnog latte!!! Yay, we have coffee and eggnog in common. *hi-five*! Now eggnog frappuccino is something I have never tried and I’m totally intrigued. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us Tina. I look forward to trying it. 🙂 Have a great week!

    1. Tina says:

      Hi-five right back! 😉 I gotta try an eggnog latte now! 🙂

    1. Tina says:

      I’ve never tried an eggnog latte, but I have to work on that. I hope you love the frap version as much as me. 🙂

  10. Looks amazing. I gotta buy some eggnog so I can try this!

    1. Tina says:

      Thanks! 🙂

  11. Terry says:

    I can’t realize how simple to make it. My husband is also coffee obsessed and i should try eggong for different test of coffee. Thanks Tina 🙂

    1. Tina says:

      Awesome! I hope you love it as much as I do. 🙂

  12. My boys are frappuccino AND eggnog fans…they would be all over this in seconds flat! Love how easy it is to put together. Sharing this recipe…. (=

    1. Tina says:

      I’m seriously obsessed with this frap! Depending on my mood, some days I add a little more eggnog in it…eggnog with a side of coffee. 😉
      I hope your boys love it as much as I do. 🙂

  13. I’m obsessed with eggnog and coffee, so this is a must make for me! Sometimes I even get an eggnog craving mid-year and have to make my own 🙂

    1. Tina says:

      Coolio! My husband wants me to stock up on it so that we can enjoy it all year long…hehe. I may have to venture out and try making it, myself. 🙂
