Perfect-Figure Egg Nog

Faith Keith - Figure friendly Egg nogNeed a naughty festive treat, but really trying to be good this year?  Try this egg-nog recipe! It is actually something I concocted as a post-workout drink (or mini-meal/”snack”).

Ingredients

16 oz skim milk
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon rum extract or “vanilla butter and nut extract”
1 scoop vanilla protein (or 1 pkg weight watchers vanilla smoothie)
1/4 tsp nutmeg
dash of cinnamon

Directions:

Combine all ingredients and blend in your protein shaker or blender or VitaMix!  To enjoy, pour the eggnog into a glass or mug and sprinkle with nutmeg and cinnamon.  Ahh…you’re taste buds will never know you’re still in your meal plan.

If You Like it Hot and More Decadent

Ingredients

2 eggs — separated
4 cups skim milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons rum extract
1-2 scoops vanilla protein (or 2 pkgs weight watchers vanilla smoothie)
1/4 tsp nutmeg
dash of cinnamon

Directions:

Combine the egg yolks and milk in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until the mixture coats a metal spoon. Cool.

Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Add to the milk mixture, then add the vanilla, sugar substitute, extract and protein. Mix lightly. Cover and chill.

To serve, pour the eggnog into cups and sprinkle with nutmeg and cinnamon.
