Lite Eggnog

The way to survive holiday eating is to start by skipping on the food. I don't agree! It's the holidays, enjoy the food that you won't get for at least another year when they quickly roll back around.

One of my favorite card sayings, which I am sure most of you have heard...."you’re not supposed to walk into your grave perfectly preserved, made up, and hair in place! No! Slide in sideways, body completely used up, martini in one hand, chocolate bar in the other screaming, ‘what a ride!’”

If you must go lite, I pulled this recipe out of the O Magazine December issue.


6 cups skim milk
1 cup egg substitute
1/2 cup nonfat powdered milk
6 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp rum extract
ground nutmeg or cinnamon
sugar free whipped topping

1. Whisk skim milk, egg substitute, powdered milk and sugar over medium heat. Stir 15-20 minutes, until thickened.

2. Remove from heat; which in vanilla and rum extracts. Let cool, stirring occasionally, 20 to 30 minutes. Refrigerate 2-3 hours.

3. Stir and pour into cups. If desired, sprinkle each with nutmeg or cinnamon; add a dollop of whipped topping.

Makes 6 servings (about 100 calories each)

Eat, Drink and be Merry!
