Healthy Egg Nog Recipe

I LOVE egg nog, but the high fat, dairy version doesn’t love me back.

It makes me sick to my tummy, and it makes me feel bloated, so I had to design my own healthy version, using almond milk and my favorite sweet spices.

It’s awesome, and kids love it too.. so do husbands.
