Healthy Egg Nog

Wowowow… I’m sooo behind on my blogging.  I’m sorry, I promise I’ll do better!

It’s been a very busy, but wonderful, Christmas.  I am very blessed with everything in my life and I hope you all feel the same.

So, I don’t know about you, but my past two weeks have consisted of stuffing food in my face and I think I’ve eaten enough to last a lifetime.  Which is what you’re supposed to do, I think, because it happens every year.  Did you know the average person gains 8 pounds in the months of November and December? 

If you’re one of the statistics, don’t worry, this egg nog is good for you.  Well, actually, I don’t know how good for you it is, but it’s not bad for you like regular egg nog.  I was really skeptical about making this because egg nog seems like a really distinct, irreplaceable taste to me, but there was no reason to be because it was delicious.  It tasted just like egg nog. 

I really don’t even like egg nog that much, but I still get excited to buy some every year because I “might like it now”.  Am I the only person that does that?  Anyway… try it!  It’s very easy.  And good.

 Put all the ingredients in the blender.
 Drink with these snickerdoodles.
