Eggless Eggnog

I love this season, everything about it. I especially love the special seasonal treats. It also turns out the Snickerdoodle loves eggnog as much as I do (hard to believe, I could drink it by the gallon) so last year, before we went broke pounding through the Silk Soymilk Eggnog, I went in search of a cheaper alternative. I'm going to share with you the original recipe as well as my adapted version (for soymilk). I'd love to hear if you make any of your own changes:

Original recipe from

  • 8 cups milk
  • 1 (3 ounce) package jello instant vanilla pudding
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp nutmet

In large bowl (actually I just use the pitcher it'll stay in), mix pudding with 1 cup of milk

When pudding is thick, add remaining ingredients, mix very well.

Chill (you and the beverage). If you're super eager and you used cold milk, this really should be ready in less than 10 minutes.

*For vegetarian, use a vegetarian instant vanilla pudding mix.


As I mentioned above, I've made some of my own changes based on the products we always seem to have on hand. The directions are the same but my ingredients are a little different.


  • 2 boxes (8 cups) of Organic Vanilla Soy Milk (I buy the Kirkland brand by the case at Costco)
  • 1 (5.5 ounce - the bigger box) box of Jello instant vanilla pudding
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
So as you can see, I don't add vanilla since I'm already using vanilla soy milk and the box of pudding I use is bigger because I like it super thick and rich. 


Warning - this does NOT dissolve well in coffee (you can do it but don't leave your spoon behind, it'll likely need a re-stir).

UPDATE: In case you're interested in the cost, I'd estimate the milk version of it can cost as little as $2 for 1/2 gallon if you shop sales. The soy milk version is more like $3 based on the Kirkland soy milk price and pudding mix purchased on sale at the drug store.

Thank you for reading,

  1. This sounds great!  I love that it doesn't have real egg in it.  I made some with raw eggs when I was a kid and learned the hard way not to do that!

  2. Oh no, that's a rough lesson to learn. Last year I was a little nervous about raw eggs and this year, being 8.5 months pregnant, I'm even more nervous. As you see, there are no ingredients in this one that need any special handling so it is totally safe. Darnit, now I have to go get a glass . . . I get to thinking about it and must have some. :) It's like a meal in a glass.
