Yes, You Can Make a Delicious Lower-Fat Eggnog! (Recipe)

 

Is it really possible to make a lighter, but still delicious, eggnog? I wasn’t so sure. I was really pleasantly surprised by this recipe, though; it does a really great job of mimicking the full-fat version. Now the only problem I’ll have this holiday season is not making too much of it!

Lighter Eggnog.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Large eggs yolks only
  • 3 1/2 Cups 1% milk
  • 1/2 Cup fat-free sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 Tablespoon flour
  • 1/4 Teaspoon grated whole nutmeg, plus more for garnish
  • 1/8 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Cup burbon
  • 2 Tablespoons brandy
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions:
1. Add the egg yolks in a medium bowl. Set aside.
2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisk milk, condensed milk, flour, nutmeg and salt constantly until it comes to a boil. Temper eggs; whisk 1/3 of the milk mixture into the egg yolks, and pour the mixture back to the saucepan. Cook until slightly thickened, about 1 minute. Turn off heat. Pour mixture into pitcher. Add bourbon, brandy and vanilla. Stir to combine. Cover pitcher with wax paper and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. When serving, garnish with a little grated nutmeg.

Eating eggs raw is a dangerous and extremely unhealthy practice eggs are very often the source of salmonella outbreaks.
