Quick, Easy & All-Natural Egg Nog

Hi everyone! It's that time of year when holiday traditions take over. This includes a variety of foods and beverages. One of the most popular beverages is egg nog. Believe it or not, there is a healthy way to enjoy your egg nog. It doesn't contain any additives, preservatives, colorings or other harmful ingredients.

Traditional egg nog is made with cream. This, of course, adds extra fat and calories. Instead, substitute the cream with lowfat or nonfat milk. You will get used to the taste. I started drinking home made egg nog as a kid. It always contained lowfat milk, so I became accustomed to the taste. You can do the same.

Here's what you'll need for one serving:

1 cup lowfat or nonfat milk
1 egg
1 T. sugar or honey

Combine all ingredients in a blender, shaker, or food processor. Process until a thick consistency is reached and ingredients are all blended together. Taste and add additional sweetener, if needed. Blend again.

Pour into a chilled glass. Sprinkle with additional cinnamon for some extra color, if desired.

Store leftovers in airtight container in the refrigerator.

Since so many LOVE alcohol in their egg nog, you can add whichever type you prefer. Me...I enjoy the nog au natural.
