INSTANT POT HOMEMADE EGG NOG RECIPE

This recipe for Instant Pot Homemade Egg Nog makes the creamiest, flavorful and non-alcoholic egg nog with a touch of cinnamon spice!

INSTANT POT EGG NOG RECIPE

Have you ever tried to make your own egg nog? It’s actually really simple and I promise the flavor will beat anything you can buy at the store. This Instant Pot Egg Nog ensures that the drink is cooked and heated evenly and at a consistent temperature so the egg nog gets gently infused with the flavors of nutmeg, cinnamon and anise.

TIPS FOR MAKING THIS HOLIDAY DRINK:

  • The benefit of using the instant pot is you get a consistent temperature for the entire process. This can also be done on the stovetop using a double boiler. The key to making it on the stovetop is to keep a close eye on the temperature so it doesn’t get too hot, too quickly. Gentle, even heating is the key with egg nog.
  • This egg nog can be spiked for the adults who want a little something extra. For every cup (8 ounces) of egg nog, you’ll want about an ounce of alcohol. My favorites to add to egg nog are spiced rum, bourbon, whiskey or Bailey’s Irish cream.
  • Star anise has a flavor that is similar to licorice but not overpowering. If you don’t like that flavor, just leave it out. Some other options include: pumpkin pie spice, apple pie spice, or cloves.
  • Store the finished egg nog in the refrigerator. It will keep for about 10 days. I usually give it a good stir before serving.
  • In preparing this, you’ll want to use a deep (not wide) bowl that is oven (heat) safe. I am using a Pyrex-brand bowl for this recipe. You’ll want to test to make sure the bowl you are using will fit comfortably inside your electric pressure cooker.

HOW TO MAKE INSTANT POT HOMEMADE EGG NOG:

Set (6 quart) instant pot to sauté on low heat. Fill instant pot with 5 cups of water, bring to a boil. If you have a glass lid for your instant pot, this would be a great time to use it. It will help the water come to a boil much faster. Add eggs to a deep Pyrex bowl (1.75q) and whisk well.eggs in a clear glass bowl sitting on a wooden cutting boardAdd heavy cream, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, light brown sugar, milk, granulated sugar and nutmeg to the bowl and whisk to blend.measuring cup filled with brown sugar held over a bowl filled with egg and milk mixtureUsing a trivet, lower the bowl into the instant pot.
