The basic recipe is the same as for 'Hog Nog, but hold off on the spices this time around. Once you have the eggs, milk, and sugar mixed together, set that mix aside and get out your spinach! We recently saw a recipe for green frosting that uses spinach for color and apparently doesn't impart any flavor. Apparently it's possible to borrow the chlorophyll color without getting the spinach flavor, too, which is pretty awesome. So, we hypothesized that we could also apply it to our Nog!
|Follow the procedures for 'Hog Nog, using the recipe below, until you get to this point (egg yolks beaten, milk and sugar added and mixed in). For the current recipe, we made a half recipe, so in the following pictures, the bowl will be half as full.|
|Measure out two cups of spinach (for our half recipe).|
|That's all there is too it! This beverage is best enjoyed in our lucky canning jar mugs (we think).|
6 Egg yolks
3 c milk
1/3 c sugar
2 c spinach
1-2 t peppermint extract
Beat egg yolks until bright yellow and stiff. Add milk and sugar, mix well. Add spinach and mix with immersion blender until homogeneous. Add peppermint extract and mix well.
