I'm having a suuuuuper lazy day today (and yesterday, and well, the last 2 weeks or so). I'm almost ready to put away my holiday decorations and start cleaning out the cobwebs of 2012. Almost.
Due to my horrible Xmas food poisoning (boooo!), I didn't get a chance to have one of my favorite holiday treats, eggnog. Now that I'm back up to speed, I can handle those raw eggs like a champ!
I found this recipe for some eggnog poptails, tropical style. Think eggnog, with a bit of pina colada mixed it. YES!
Here's what you need: This will make about 10 large popsicles
- 1 (13.5-ounce) can coconut milk
- 1 (12-ounce) can evaporated milk
- 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 large pasteurized egg yolk (see Note)
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup light rum
A few things to note about this recipe. I substituted 2 tablespoons of already made eggnog for the pasteurized egg yolk, because I didn't want to risk making my tummy sick again. I had about a cup of eggnog leftover that I wanted to use also, so I threw that in. These were SO soft when I pulled them out, I wonder if they would freeze without the extra nog added. I've had issues with that before with my other poptail adventures. Also, this is a coquito, so it will have a coconuty eggnog flavor. Very tropical and delicious, but I think the extra nog kept it more the eggnog flavor I was looking for, with a hint of pina colada. :)
Like eating coconut rummy eggnog ice cream on a stick.
Have a lovely weekend!
