When you’re trying to eat healthy, the holidays can seem like torture. But not this year! Why? You’ve got this spectacular, super duper, totally yummy, (healthy!) eggnog recipe!

Now I’ll be honest — when I first had the idea for a healthy eggnog, I didn’t think it would work out too well. I mean, traditional eggnog is not so great for you. Eggs, heavy cream, whole milk, sugar, and sometimes alcohol. Not exactly a recipe for good health.

Luckily, I found a solution, and its main ingredient is almond milk. That’s right. One cup (eight ounces) of vanilla-flavored, unsweetened almond milk only sets you back 30 calories. To get a cup of anything for 30 calories is nothing short of a miracle. And that’s just the start. Almond milk is also high in magnesium, potassium, and vitamin E, and it’s a great “milk” for those who are lactose intolerant. You can find almond milk in most grocery stores along with the dairy and soy drinks in the refrigerated aisle.

Here’s the rest of the recipe, which includes USANA’s tasty French Vanilla Nutrimeal™.
