4 Low-Calorie Holiday Drinks

Slim-Style Eggnog


Eggnog is definitely at the top of Santa’s naughty list. An 8-ounce pour, made with a “triple threat” ingredient list of cream, whole milk, and egg yolks, will cost you a shocking 350 to 450 calories — and overload your system with 12 grams of saturated fat and more than 14 teaspoons of sugar. My slim-style version satisfies your holiday hankering for half the calories and sugar — and a fraction of the fat.


Combine 5 cups cold 1% milk, 1 (3.4 oz) package vanilla instant pudding mix, 3/4 teaspoon rum extract, and 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg in a blender; pour into a pitcher and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes to allow the eggnog to set up. When you’re ready to serve, pour into glasses and sprinkle on a little extra nutmeg. Makes 5 (1 cup) servings. 175 calories per serving.
