If you love all things eggnog, you are going to love this eggnog pudding. It’s the easiest (and most delicious) homemade pudding you’ll ever make!
This 5-Minute Eggnog Pudding is one of the tastiest homemade pudding recipes you’ll ever make with instant pudding and a few festive ingredients!
Eggnog pudding is a recipe I use in my Eggnog Poke Cake, but this year I figured not everyone is all-in for a cake, so I’d go ahead and just post the pudding portion.
Why is it a 5-minute pudding recipe? Because we are using instant pudding mix! This hack is so simple, you’ll be sad you didn’t think of it of it sooner.
All you have to do is substitute the cold milk for eggnog and add some pumpkin pie spice for flavor. Tada! Five-minute eggnog is DONE.
Well almost. It still needs to get nice and cold, but it is just as scrumptious as a nice glass of eggnog.
As I mentioned in the post for my Eggnog Poke Cake, eggnog is one of my favorite seasonal treats. For me, it even beats out gingerbread and peppermint which is hard.
I have a soft spot for both of those things. It is for that reason that I love experimenting with new egg nog recipes.
For those of you that don’t know, eggnog is essentially a milk punch drink. This dairy drink is made a mixture of sweetened eggs, egg whites, milk, and cream.
Not exactly something you should be drinking or eating in pudding form every day, but a special treat during the holidays!
Fun fact: the origin of this beloved drink is somewhat contested, but one thing the historians can agree on: people have been drinking this amazing concoction since the middle ages.
I find guests are usually surprised and delighted to try eggnog in something other than a drink!
I don’t typically consider instant pudding to be homemade pudding but I think since we’re taking a boring ol’ vanilla pudding and turning it into something absolutely delicious with a few extra ingredients, that we get to call this eggnog pudding recipe homemade pudding.
As I discovered with this Eggnog Pudding, pudding recipes can turn from boring to new and exciting with just a few ingredients, even if you start with instant pudding!
Served in a nice dish, the Eggnog Pudding recipe is a quick pudding that makes an easy holiday dessert!
