Eggnog ...
 
My recent post in the thread on dairy vs. soy, about how I found that soymilk-based nog is so much less calorific than real or imitation dairy-based eggnog, got me to thinking: How come you can get eggnog-flavored Ensure @ any time of the year but you can only get eggnog during the Xmas season (and I think I saw some once in a grocery store around Easter)?

Hey, I see I just went past 200 posts! Yea me

That is an interesting question. I make my egg nog home made. There are a couple of brands I have tried that I like but home made is best :)

Just got this eggnog alternative recipe from Hungry Girl today: :xcheer:

Ingredients:
5 cups 8th Continent Light Vanilla Soymilk (or another light vanilla soymilk**)
1 small (4-serving) package Je ll-O Sugar Free Fat Free Instant Pudding mix, Vanilla
6 no-calorie sweetener packets (like Splenda)
1 tsp. rum extract or imitation rum extract
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg

Directions:
In a blender, combine all ingredients and blend on high until mixed thoroughly. Refrigerate for a few hours to allow it to thicken. Makes five 1-cup servings!

HG Alternative! For some "over 21" eggnog, add 5 ounces of rum to the recipe. With 153 calories and a POINTSŪ value of 3* per serving, that's WAY better than an ordinary eggnog cocktail!

Serving Size: 1 cup (1/5th of recipe)
Calories: 88
Fat: 2g
Sodium: 350mg
Carbs: 11g
Fiber: 0g
Sugars: 5g
Protein: 6g

POINTSŪ value 2*

Yes that is much lower than what I make. Mine has 5 grams of fat and 40 carbs per cup. But has milk and sugar in it too.

I ask questions like that all the time. Why eggnog only at one certain time of year? It doesn't make any sense. It must fall under that stupid reason of: "But we've always done it this way."
I think we should make a new "rule." July 16 is Official Eggnog day.

Oh I agree. There should be a mountain dew day too. Don't forget the dew

The Ensure may be available all year because it is canned and not perishable like milk products are.

I like eggnog. However, I want about a half cup and I'm done. :lol:

I want about 1/2 a gallon at a time lol.

I don't think eggnog should be had at any time of the year, the thought of raw eggs grosses me out.

I would drink the soynog though but I tried their Pumpkin spice soy drink... oh it is soo good... pumpkin should be a year round thing.

:barf: pumpkin :barf:

I love eggnog! Soy or otherwise (some recipes do cook the eggs.) I've decided this year to limit myself to one glass on Christmas, because it just doesn't taste right without a shot of bourbon and a generous grating of nutmeg. YUM!

I beg to differ, that sounds yummy. nelie, is that a Silk product? I'll have to check it out next time I go to the store

nelie 12-11-2007 05:44 PM

Yeah! Silk Pumpkin Spice... nummilicious. I've also heard they have Silk Peppermint Chocolate... I haven't tried it or seen it though.

Spinymouse 12-11-2007 06:08 PM

Pumpkin spice soy drink year round sounds good too!

OMG that's right, I forgot about the SURGEON GENERAL's WARNING: RAW EGG IS HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH [screeching Psycho strings] YEEK YEEK YEEK [/screeching Psycho strings] ::hunts in vain for a skull-and-xbones smiley:: !!! Course I don't drink the real full-cholesterol eggnog anyway, and I suppose commercial brands are made with pasteurized eggstuff
