Eggnog (Recipe from Cooking Light)
I love eggnog. It used to be a tradition in our home that when we decorate the house for Christmas and put up the tree we would always drink eggnog with a tad of brandy in it.
Now that I’m much more aware of the calories and fat that store brand eggnog contains I thought I might have to give it up. That’s until I found this delicious, low-calorie eggnog from Eating Cooking Light.
3 1/2 cups 1% low-fat milk
1/2 cup fat-free sweetened condensed milk
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon grated whole nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 large egg yolks
1/4 cup bourbon
2 tablespoons brandy
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Additional grated whole nutmeg (optional)
Combine first 5 ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly with a whisk. Place egg yolks in a medium bowl. Gradually whisk one-third of hot milk mixture into egg yolks. Add yolk mixture to remaining hot milk mixture, stirring with a whisk.

It is delicious and there is nothing in the flavor that indicates it’s a ‘lighter’ version of the real thing. Try it this holiday season and enjoy!
