Ninja Foodi Eggnog Recipe

INGREDIENTS:

  • 6 egg yolks
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 ½ cups milk (I used 2% but you can use whole milk as well)
  • 1 ½ cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Nutmeg for garnish *optional*

How to Make Eggnog in the Ninja Foodi

  • Place the egg yolks into the cooking pot of the Ninja Foodi. Don’t forget to set the whites aside for another recipe. 
  • Add the sugar, and the milk. With a whisk mix well. Place your Ninja Foodi on the Air Fryer / Stove Top and select Sear and saute mode. Place the heat on #2 (down arrow)
  • Cook and mix until the temperature reaches 150 degrees F. I used a silicone whisk so I don’t scratch the bottom of the pan. Keep an eye on the mixture. It will reach the temperature quickly and mixing it while cooking helps the mixture to stay smooth and cook evenly.
  • Once it has reached the temperature, remove it from the heat and add the heavy cream, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Mix until all combined. 
  • Let the mixture cool to room temperature and place in the fridge until completely cool.
  • Serve and Enjoy!

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • When your egg mixture has reached 150 degrees F. Remove from the heat. I took the cooking pot out of my Ninja Foodi. I used heat proof mit as the pot is hot. Be sure to set it on a hot pad to prevent burning your counter. 
  • Be sure you let your eggnog completely cool to room temperature prior to placing it in the fridge. It is best to let it cool overnight before enjoying it. 
  • When you are ready to serve, top with nutmeg or add whipped cream.
