Nothing says fall like the taste of pumpkin, and this pumpkin eggnog is sure to be a winner!
4 eggs, separated
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1-1/2 cups whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
Nutmeg, freshly grated
Separate the egg whites into a bowl and beat on low until they are frothy. Increase the speed to medium-high and whisk until they attain a creamy consistency. Decrease the speed, add half of the sugar and continue beating. Transfer to a large bowl.
Add the egg yolks and remaining sugar mix to the bowl and mix on high until the mixture turns a pale yellow.
Combine the pumpkin puree, cinnamon and allspice and continue to mix on medium. Follow up with the milk and cream and mix on a low speed to combine everything. Keep chilled until ready to serve.
To really wow your guests, serve this drink topped with whipped cream (optional), grated nutmeg and cinnamon.
