Snuggle up on the couch with a guilt-free holiday cocktail. My hubby and I sipped this light eggnog drink with my brother and sister-in-law. It started snowing outside so we all plunked down for game night, which is always full of laughs and “friendly” competition.
I love eggnog but the calorie content is horrifying. I found this great recipe by Bethenny Frankel on Health.com and it only has 148 calories! I can live with that!
Beat 2 egg yolks until lightened in color. Add 1/3 cup sugar, beating until dissolved; set aside. Combine 2 cups 1% low-fat milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 dash each cinnamon and nutmeg in a saucepan over high heat; bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat, and gradually whisk into egg mixture. Return to pot, and cook to 160°. Remove from heat, stir in 1/4 cup white rum, and pour into a bowl; set in the refrigerator. Beat 4 pasteurized egg whites in a separate bowl until soft peaks form; with mixer running, gradually add 1 tablespoon sugar, and beat until stiff peaks form. Whisk egg whites into chilled mixture; sprinkle with cinnamon.
It tasted delicious – and practically full-fat. Everyone was a fan at Game Night.
That looks yummy. We have a brand called So Nice that makes a soymilk eggnog that is divine. It's only 120 calories for one cup.
Now I wish I hadn't already bought a bottle of eggnog. 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!
