HG’s No-Nonsense Nog!
HG’s No-Nonsense Nog!

Nog Heaven!

First there was Silk Nog -- great stuff with less than half the calories of regular egg nog.  Then along came Vitasoy with Holly Nog -- another delicious, guilt-free version.  And while we love those, Hungry Girl decided to whip up a super-easy make-at-home version that has just 88 calories per 8-oz. serving.  And wow -- the result is a super-thick & creamy nog that tastes as good as the real thing (we tested it out on 11 people...we know!).  So dust off that blender of yours and go NOG WILD!

 

Ingredients:

5 cups 8th Continent Light Vanilla Soymilk (or another light vanilla soymilk**)

1 package (1 oz.) JELL-O Sugar Free Fat Free Instant Pudding mix, Vanilla

6 packets SPLENDA

1 tsp. rum extract

1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg

Directions:

In a blender, combine all ingredients and blend on high until mixed thoroughly. Refrigerate for a few hours to allow it to thicken.  Makes five 1-cup servings!

Bad Egg

460 calories and 20g of fat for a cup of anything is just ludicrous.  Only a fettuccini alfredo shake could rival those frightening nutritionals (um, don't get any ideas!).  Alta Dena's Holiday Eggnog is a big fat no-no. This stuff is a thick, gloppy mess.  And that's without rum.  If you decide to get a little nutty and spike the stuff with an ounce of alcohol, don't forget to tack on an extra 70 - 100 calories or so.  Eeeek!  Skip this nasty nog and whip up some of HG's No-Nonsense Nog instead.  (And, yes, we've heard about Alta Dena's so-called "lite" eggnog.  It still has 340 calories per one-cup serving.  No thanks.)
