Every December I need to have my egg nog. I love the stuff! However I find that the store bought is just too thick and sweet, I would always have to “water it down” with milk, but even then it’s still loaded with sugar and fat, which is fine once in a while, but not every day. So being that I enjoy creating recipes, I began to play with egg nog recipes. I soon realized that I could concoct a skinny egg nog to help keep off the holiday bulge and that way I could drink as much as I wanted without worry or guilt. Bonus: it even has a lot of protein (after all, it is EGG nog). It’s practically a meal replacement! Perfect for people on a diet or fitness program or those who just want to drink as much as they want, whenever they want it.
I bundled this recipe, along with other skinny holiday recipes and diet strategies in my eBook Holiday Dieting Handbook ($2.99 at Amazon).
- One pint Egg Beaters, regular flavor
- One pint liquid pasteurized egg whites
- Half gallon Fairlife* fat-free milk
- One pint fat-free half-and-half
- One cup powdered Splenda (or sugar substitute of your choice)
- ¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
- Combine all ingredients.
- Mix/shake well.
Keep refrigerated. The mixture will separate with time, so shake well before serving. If you want yours a bit frothier, put a serving into a blender for a few seconds or until your desired frothy consistency is achieved.
*Fairlife brand milk is a much thicker consistency than skim milk, but regular skim can be used as well.
Mix this up in a large pitcher, then pour into an old gallon milk jug using a funnel. Drink as much as you want, guilt-free. Enjoy!
