After reading all the replies to my post on what I miss, I realized that the holidays are almost here. The thing I missed most last year was egg nog. (I'll admit to drinking a little bit of it.) I went on line and found tons of recipes using sugar-free vanilla pudding or egg substitue. Have any of you tried this and do they taste like the real thing?

I am not an eggnog drinker, but I know that my local grocery stores sell a light version which is what I buy for my family. It isn't thick like the regular. I have also known people to thin down the high test eggnog with skim milk. Might be worth trying.

its ok to try the fake egg nog if you like, I prefer to drink the real stuff, but in small doses. It wont hurt to drink alittle and get the full taste. Just dont overdo it.

Here is about what I do for one serving and then multiply for number of servings you want: 6 oz milk product (lactose free or 2% or whole, etc); 1/4 cup eggbeaters; slosh of rum (less than a shot, more than a tsp); fresh ground nutmeg to taste. Blend in blender. A little spritz of whipped cream on top is also a nice touch with more fresh ground nutmeg on top of that so the scent of nutmeg permeates the drinker's nose. Taste test but not so often that you drink up all the Christmas cheer before the guests arrive!!!

I make egg nog sometimes with egg beaters instead of real whole eggs. I've also made it with lactose free milk due to hubby's lactose intolerance. Always I substitute Splenda for sugar. Hubby loves egg nog so any variation I make that passes his taste test I consider a success. The key seems to use freshly ground nutmeg and a small amount of rum. As long I do that hubby is happy with the variations. Hope this helps. Merry Christmas!!!
