Fun with Eggnog!
Get creative with your nog, humans!
Spiked! If you want to make an alcoholic version of any of these drinks (and you're of legal age to enjoy it!), nix the rum extract and reduce the soymilk to 4 1/2 cups -- then add 5 oz. rum to the recipe. Just tack on an additional 58 calories each serving.
In Your Coffee! A generous splash of any of these nogs will add creamy flavor to your java. Mmmmm!
Nogsicles! If you've got one of those ice-pop molds for making freezy treats at home, pour in some nog and freeze until solid. Or just use small plastic cups, cover 'em with foil, and slide a Popsicle stick thru the foil to make your pops. Sooo good!
