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:
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)
Place the pudding mix powder in a large mixing bowl.
Slowly add the milk and whisk until smooth.
Blend in the rum, vanilla, and 1/4 tsp nutmeg.
Cover and chill before serving, best to let sit in the fridge overnight so the flavors can truly blend together.
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!!
