I just made my life a bit better and because I'm just such a nice person, I wanted to share with all of you!
Holidays are about family and love but there is no doubt that food is big part of it. For me that included egg nog but have you looked at the side of the container of Egg Nog! 4 oz has 22 carbs! OH MY! 22 carbs for 4 oz was just not acceptable! Can't have that but I really love egg nog so I "Googled" the web for a recipe. I love all the information that is out there on the web now these days. Well, I found several recipes, but a lot of them involved cooking the eggs into a type of custard then cooling it all off before drinking. That was a lot of work to me so I decided to try my own. Here is what I came up with.
Low Carb Egg Nog
1/4 cup egg substitute (since it's pasteurized you can drink it without the worry associated with consuming raw eggs.)
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup Vanilla Almond Milk (un-sweetened)
Nutmeg to taste and Vanilla sugar free syrup to taste
Mix all in a blender and watch it because the heavy cream will become whipped cream fast. See how the straw stands up on it's own? If you have egg nog seasoning - use that too. Yum!
Oh - and I can have 8 oz of this for 2 carbs total
Sure is better than that 44 carbs for the same 8 oz of the "other stuff" don't you think? Try it and let me know what you think.
Life is better everyday! Enjoy Life!
Oh I almost forgot! Here is the Christmas shirt for today.
