    Really simple and delicious recipe, has a lovely smooth texture. It turned out better than I expected. The eggnog I started with was not very strongly spiced; once the ingredients were mixed, the result tasted more like a lightly spiced french vanilla than an eggnog flavour, so I added some freshly grated nutmeg, some allspice and a bit of cinnamon to the mixture bring out the eggnog flavour. I left it to stand in the fridge overnight before putting it in the ice cream maker. Will definitely make again; perhaps I will add some rum soaked raisins to the next round for the grown ups.  -  23 Nov 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe is the best. its perfect. i'll be using it a lot from here on out. Don't ever use the allrecipes "easy eggnog ice cream" recipe off this site. its really gross and bland. Luckily "No-Cook Eggnog Ice Cream" is absolutely perfect, trust me!  -  20 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I chose this recipe because I didn't have to cook it. It was easy! It is a good ice cream, but by no means is it amazing. It is very creamy and rich. Instead of the vanilla I used amaretto. I like the flavor amaretto gives ice cream! I might make this again, but may play with the recipe a bit!!  -  12 Nov 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
