    Hi Cassey,

    I think I am going to make this before Christmas. I’m going to take out the honey and almond milk, and stick with a tablespoon of whole almonds instead. Also, could you please write the calorie content for each ingredient so we can take out the calories for things we don’t add when we want to calculate the updated calorie content.

    Thanks

    GREAT RECIPE!
    I actually used Agave Syrup instead of Honey just to cut a few more calorie corners, but otherwise tastes fantastic. I doubled the quantity so the whole family can enjoy :)
    Thank you for this recipe

    I made this and it turned out great! Definitely recommend it :). It makes me feel less guilty about my addiction to egg nog.

  • Asha

    Made it today and it’s really good :)

  • Your means of describing all in this post is in fact good, every one can effortlessly be aware of it, Thanks a lot.

    I found some great low-calorie cocktails. They are called CountryGirl Cocktails. They have a facebook page http://www.facebook.com/countrygirlcocktails … I had to request them to send some to a store near me and I was surprised how quickly they sold out! I drink them with my girlfriends and save tonnns of calories from margaritas!

    I just made my eggnog and now it’s waiting in the fridge :) I’ll tell you how it came out in the morning.

    • Montana

      It came out great! But I added too much nutmeg haha.

  • Halie

    Does anyone know good recipes for incorporating veggies into smoothies. I know you have to be careful with fruit smoothies because of the sugar. I was just wondering how to balance it out and make them a little more healthier!?

    • fitgal

      Hey there! Adding greens like spinach to fruit smoothies is a great way to ad more nutrients without losing flavor. Also, try juicing sweeter vegetables, such as carrots, to make great smoothies. Carrot and apple is delicious.

    • Asha

      You can add a handful of spinach or other salad greens (preferably with a very mild flavor) to your smoothies. If you use a green with a mild flavor, it wont even change the taste of your smoothie :)

  • I am really loving the theme/design of your weblog.
    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?
    A number of my blog audience have complained about my site not operating correctly
    in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any advice to help
    fix this issue?

  • Luca

    You inspirate me to do my own Snack :
    I mixed two bananas together and included some nuts , cinnamon , Vanille flavour and some coconut .
    It tasted nice :)

  • Emma

    Would regular milk be too thick?

  • Romana

    WOW! This looks delicious, like all the other recipes! It makes me hungry!
    I’m new at this blog, and i LOVE it! I even started exercising, so I hope i’m going to lose some weight!

    I know another healthy drink! It’s lemon juice! Right now i’m living in Suriname (in South-America, above Brasil) so when i’m really thirsty, I squeeze 4 to 5 lemon, I add some water and a tbs honey or stevia. DELICIOUS!

    The Eggnog i’m going to try when i’m back at Holland, because in Suriname they don’t have almond milk or vanilla-extract..

    PS: Don’t blame me for the bad English! :$

    • Asha

      You could use regular milk, soy milk, goat’s milk, coconut milk, or sheep milk to make it. (goat’s milk and sheep milk are both very healthy, so if they have those there that would be great). You could use the seeds from a vanilla bean, instead of the extract, if they have vanilla beans there.

  • Your health site is nice. I get me needed information about health in to your site. And garymbolton is also informative site for health. I also love it.

  • This is AMAZING! I love eggnog but hate the processed packaged stuff with the fat and sugar content. Where was this during xmas!

  • Tiff

    Delicious! I did end up straining out the egg white bits, but it doesn’t take away from the “egg” flavor of the drink.

  • Hmm…in step 1, did you mean blend in a blender for a few minutes…??

  • Elly

    Thanks Cassey! I’m going to buy some almond milk and try this!

  • Caroline

    Cassey I’m so excited! This morning I got the blue “be you-tiful” tank top for Christmas and I LOVE IT. I intend to use it tomorrow when I get back on track (after 4 days off). I’ll use it as extra inspiration! I love that it’s so lightweight and it folds up to nothing. It’ll be easy to pack for trips! I hope your Christmas is going phenomenal :) Merry Christmas Cassey!

  • Becca

    I will have to try this sometime, it looks simple and delicious! :)

    I also wanted to tell you I LOVE the new look to the blog, it looks so posh! *hugs* Merry Christmas!

    Cassey,

    Had a conversation with a yoga instructor today and I thought I would throw the question at you. Does eating too much protein (ie, focusing on eating more lean protein and drinking protein smoothies) make you gain weight if you aren’t incorporating weight training (mostly just bodyweight training and cardio stuff)?

    Thanks,
    Liza

    OMG can’t WAIT to try this – I love eggnog so now I don’t have to feel bad for drinking a day’s-worth of calories!

  • Ivori Rose

    I added 1/8th of a teaspoon of cayenne pepper because I’m crazy like that !

  • Ivori Rose

    Yummy !

  • Jennifer

    Never use raw eggs if you don’t intend to cook the food item. Pasteurized eggs can be used in place of raw eggs and you don’t need to adjust the recipe.

    • Jennifer

      My B. I should’ve read more because I would have seen the cook step.

  • Asha

    My comment didn’t show :/
    Can I use rice milk instead, or will it be too thin? I don’t have any almond milk right now, but I made a gallon of rice milk last night……

  • Tara

    What if you get pasturized eggwhites, do you have to simmer it?
