Egg Nog

I love egg nog and I love the holidays…so I figured with it getting close to Christmas and more and more Christmas parties are coming about, I wanted to use an egg nog recipe that can also be substituted with sugar-free ingredients….and voila! I found this recipe and of course I altered it a bit 😉 I hope you enjoy and most of all MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Makes: 10 servings

** 1/4-1/2 cup of rum can be substituted in place of the rum flavoring (optional)

** you can also use pumpkin pie spice in place of the nutmeg for pumpkin flavored egg nog (optional)

Here’s what you’ll need:

egg nog 001

1 (3.4 oz) box instant vanilla pudding mix

5 1/2 cups lowfat milk (I used 2%)

1 tsp rum flavoring (extract)

1 tsp vanilla extract

Ground nutmeg to taste (or freshly grated-depends on taste preference)

Directions:

Place the pudding mix powder in a large mixing bowl.

egg nog 002

Slowly add the milk and whisk until smooth.

egg nog 003

Blend in the rum, vanilla, and 1/4 tsp nutmeg.

egg nog 004

Cover and chill before serving, best to let sit in the fridge overnight so the flavors can truly blend together.

egg nog 005

Serve in small 1/2 cup portions topped with a squirt of whipped cream and a sprinkle of grated nutmeg. Please make sure to stir the egg nog after it has had a chance to sit overnight, it will thicken up nicely. Please ENJOY!!
