Recipe: Skinny Eggnog
Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Yield: 6 servings

Serving size: ½ cup


2½ cups unsweetened almond milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 eggs

1 egg white

⅓ cup sugar

1 teaspoon cornstarch

cinnamon, to taste

nutmeg, to taste

*Optional ingredients are not included in nutrition calculations.


Heat a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the almond milk and vanilla, and heat until it almost simmers (do not bring to a boil.).

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg white, sugar, and cornstarch until frothy.

Temper the eggs into the heated almond milk. To do this, add about ¼ cup of the almond milk to the egg mixture, whisking quickly. Add another ¼ cup, and whisk again. Tempering allows both liquids to come to the same temperature before combining them, so the eggs do not curdle.

Add the cooled-down egg mixture to the almond milk, and whisk to combine. Stir frequently until it begins to thicken, about 6-8 minutes.

Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg, to taste.

Serve warm or chilled and top with optional whipped topping as desired.
