Eggnog Steamer

1 serving (8 ounces)

  • 4 ounces of your favorite eggnog (we used a non-alcoholic version, but adults over the age of 21 can choose a more “festive” variety)
  • 4 ounces skim milk
  • Whipped cream
  • Freshly ground nutmeg

Place the frothing disk in your Capresso froth PLUS and make sure it is securely snapped inside the bottom of the frothing pitcher. Add skim milk and eggnog into the frothing pitcher. Place lid and press the “Hot” button. Once the cycle is complete, pour into a serving glass. Top with whipped cream, ground nutmeg, and enjoy!

Tip: A little nutmeg goes a long way, but just a pinch will add great flavor! Use freshly ground nutmeg when possible.
