As I left Dunkin Donuts with my iced coffee, my hair blowing wildly in the snow, I thought fondly of the egg nog that my mom was supposed to be buying. That was one drink they did not have at college. But alas, egg nog is really not THAT cold. Sure, it's about the same temperature as every other beverage in the fridge, but I want me a FROZEN drink. So then my dear friend Zack came over, and we pondered this predicament, and finally came up with....ready?... New Englander's Egg Nog!
It's a very simple recipe, and a billion people may have done it before, but we would like our moment. So here is the lovely little recipe

New Englander's Egg Nog (2 Servings)
Put roughly 6 scoops vanilla ice cream into a blender
Cover ice cream with egg nog to 3/4 point (Eye ball it. This is your smoothie. You OWN this smoothie!!!)
Toss in some pumpkin pie spice for good measure. Just a bit. Let's not get crazy.
Blend until you're satisfied
Pour into glasses and garnish with ground nutmeg if desired.

We proudly took pics of our drink for your viewing pleasure

Ok, this is so freakin' awesome, that I can't wait to get some ice cream to try this out.  It looks delicious.  My mama used to make eggnog ice cream, so this has got to be great.

Yummy. I've made it before, but didn't think to add the pumpkin pie spice. Great idea!
