Eggnog Ramblings

As the weather starts cooling and the Holidays approach, I have found myself dreaming of eggnog! Unfortunately, sometimes my stomach doesn't do well with dairy, so last year I found some alternatives. I tried Silk Nog, and found that it was quite pleasant. It was definitely lighter than the real thing. Lactaid also came out with a lactose free version of eggnog! This one tasted closer to the real thing, but was also a bit lighter. I am just so happy that I have alternatives, so I can enjoy the wonderful taste of a holiday treat. My favorite thing to do with eggnog is to add it to my oatmeal in place of milk! I also like to substitute it for milk when making French toast.

Here are some of my favorite eggnog recipes:

I love eggnog! This year I had to give up milk so I will be looking for your alternatives. Eggnog cheesecake sounds really good!

omg Lactaid eggnog is heaven in a glass!!!! i have turned all my milk-drinking friends onto it :) (or at least given them a hard sell...)

Hmmm egg free eggnog? Well isn't that kinda cool :) I'm gearing for the holidays too, and I know they'll be here in a flash.

And speaking of the chocolate drizzle comment you left me, how about chocolate drizzle on eggnog? That would make for some happy oatmeal too :)

Silk's Spice is also to die for! I like it warmed up on a cold evening. Oooh...you're making me eager for winter and the holidays. :-)

You know what, I have real issues with Egg Nog. It's just not something I ever developed a taste for. Weird, I know, yet, there you have it!

Ooh yum! My husband and I love eggnog! We always get so excited when stores start carrying the holiday stash!

Juliet said...

Oh wow. It is time to start thinking about eggnog again. Yum! I'm a huge silk nog fan. We call it sog around here. :)

I think this year I may actually have to try making eggnog!

VeggieGirl said...

Never had eggnog OR the vegan version. Ah well ;0)

Tina said...

Eggnog! Yes! I can't wait! Thanks for the highlight! :)

I love the eggnog flavor. Can't wait for it this year! My problem with it is that it is just too thick to drink straight. I like the lowfat versions and the silk is awesome, especially in coffee. Speaking of coffee love the eggnog latte from Starbucks. Thanks for the recipes!

I'm not sure you can get eggnog in England which is a shame, I really want to try it!
