Eggnog

Every year when the eggnog first hits the shelves in the grocery store, I practically prance around with excitement.

It’s probably a good thing they don’t sell it year-round. Bad for my prancing and morale, but good for my health (if you’re into that).

EggnogIf you’re not like me (meaning that you have self-control and you’re trying to eat healthy) the holidays can seem like torture. Not this year though! Why? You’ve got this spectacular, prance-worthy, 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. We all know that eggnog is not so great for you. Eggs, heavy cream, whole milk, sugar, and sometimes alcohol.

Not exactly a recipe for good health.

I decided to figure out a healthy eggnog recipe using almond milk as the main ingredient in exchange for the cream and sugar. Not only does it taste amazing, one cup 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 if you haven’t tried it, it’s a great “milk” for those who are lactose intolerant.

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