Wait...Beyond Diet EGGNOG?

I know it sounds crazy, but even eggnog can be fat-loss-friendly.

A couple days ago, I asked what holiday recipe you wished were "Isabel Approved." Just like I did for Thanksgiving, I'll be making over a few holiday favorites between now and Christmas...and then sharing them with you, of course!

One of the most common requests was for an "Isabel Approved" eggnog recipe. I've never been a huge eggnog fan myself, so I asked Coach Taryn for some help.

Many of you know Coach Taryn from the Beyond Diet community, so you won't be surprised to hear that she was very helpful in creating a 100% BD-friendly recipe for us to try. This one had everything we wanted...no cow's milk, no bad sugars, and plenty of that holiday spice you gotta have to feed the need for nog.

But the final test came when she gave it to her boyfriend, who is a self-proclaimed lover of eggnog...and when he finished the entire glass, we knew it had to be a winner!

So here it is...a tasty, healthy version of the holiday classic that you can serve to guests or just whip up for yourself (who's telling?)!

Ingredients

  • 4 egg yolks
  • 3 cups of almond milk or coconut milk (or a combination of the two)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (or other sweetener)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

Whisk egg yolks in a small bowl and set aside.

Combine almond/coconut milk, maple syrup, vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat to low.

Add the hot liquid to the egg yolks a little bit at a time, whisking continuously, until you've added about 1 cup of the hot mixture to the yolks. Then pour the egg mixture into the pot.

Increase heat to medium. Whisk while simmering for 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Serve hot immediately OR pour into a covered container and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
