Happy Sunday! One and a half more days of work then I'm off for New Year's. One of my favorite beverages this time of year is egg nog, but it's so calorie dense. I know it's the holidays and it's a time to enjoy yourself, but a glass of nog here and there really adds up! You could use Monica's trick, or you can "healthify" your nog by making it into a smoothie. While this isn't a super low-cal treat, you can feel a bit better because you're adding some protein. I drank one of these smoothies this morning for breakfast and it hit the spot!
Egg Nog Smoothie
1 cup egg nog of your choice (I used Horizon Organic low fat nog)
1 scoop of protein powder - I used plain, but vanilla would be good
1/2 frozen banana
Handful of ice
Toss all items except nutmeg in a blender and whirl until combined. Pour in a glass and top with nutmeg, if desired.
