Warm Custard Drink
Author: 
Recipe type: Beverage
 
A delicious comforting, caffeine-free beverage.
Ingredients
  • 2 c. milk
  • 1/4 to 1/3 c. sugar (depends on how sweet you want it)
  • 2 eggs
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/8 tsp. vanilla
  • Nutmeg, ground
Instructions
  1. Put milk and sugar in small pan and heat just until it starts to simmer and come to a boil.*
  2. In the meantime, blend eggs, salt and vanilla.
  3. Once milk starts to bubble, remove from heat and add a small amount to egg mixture.** Blend immediately.
  4. Add rest of milk and blend well.
  5. Pour into two mugs and sprinkle with nutmeg.
  6. Enjoy!
Notes
* Heating the milk to just boiling makes makes it hot enough to kill any bacteria that would be in the eggs. ** If you pour it in all at once, it tends to cook the egg and you'll end up with little egg chunks in your Warm Custard- not good! Other serving suggestions: - Reader Kayla said she used maple syrup and maple flavoring for a bit of a flavor change up. I tried the maple flavor (just a few drops) and it was really good! - Reader Wendy said she used almond milk and stevia for an equally delicious drink!
