Skinny Eggnog Latte




There is something about grabbing a Starbucks Eggnog Latte before venturing out to do my Christmas shopping that puts me in the Holiday spirit. Well now you can make one in the convenience of your own cozy home at a fraction of the price and without all those added calories. This is so easy to make. If you have an espresso machine, make espresso with good strong coffee and steam your eggnog with a little milk to make it frothy and hot. Top with a dash of nutmeg and even some fat free whipped topping if you wish. If you don't have an espresso machine, no worries. Make your coffee a little stronger and heat your eggnog over the stove or in the microwave, then whip it in the blender.

  1. I have just discovered your blog and I think it's fantastic. So many wonderful recipes. I'm about to start a healthy eating regime and even though it's based on the Weight Watchers system, it's just as useful for those people who aren't with Weight Watchers.

    I'm so impressed that I'm going to do a post on my blog to steer my followers in your direction.

  2. This is a fantastic idea! I love holiday coffees, but you're right they can be pricey (not to mention full of fat and calories!). I love your version!
