Skinny Egg Nog!

  December 15, 2014  |    Blog>Recipes

We have fabulous memories from growing up and arriving at our Great Aunt Sylvia’s and Uncle Dave’s house during the holidays. They immediately served all of the adults Eggnog upon arrival. We remember that even as picky little girls, when our parents let us have a sip of egg nog, there was something about it that we liked. Maybe it was the sweetness or the warming of our throats. But either way, holiday time for us is not complete without at least seeing some eggnog! December marks National Egg Nog month! Now we know you are probably thinking that egg nog is so fattening and full of calories! But never fear– we’ve got a healthy, lightened up version to share! Indulge in this delish and easy egg nog recipe today!

 

Healthy Egg Nog

Pssstt…. although coffee isn’t how we personally get our mornin’ mo’jo’, we certainly have nothing against a cup o’ Joe and find it helps many of our clients start their morning off on a peppier side, especially if that coffee squashes a sweet craving without all the fat and calories of most sweet morning treats. That’s why we created morning boosters like our Skinny Peppermint Caffe Mocha, our Skinny Frappuccino, our Creamy Vanilla Coconut Coffee and our Vegan Mochalicious Coffee that help to do just that!
