Skinny Eggnog recipe

This is a calorie-wise Eggnog recipe, so it’s a dream. Only 109 calories per 250 ml (1 cup / 8 oz), compared to 150 to 200 calories for most store-bought eggnogs.


  • 1/2 cup Egg Substitute Egg Beaters, Egg Creations, etc, or egg substitute brand of your choice – not pure egg white
  • 1 cup Skimmed Milk or low-fat milk or milk substitute of your choice
  • 2 tablespoons Instant vanilla pudding mix or custard powder sugar free, fat-free
  • 1/8 teaspoon Cloves ground, optional
  • 1/8 teaspoon Nutmeg ground
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon ground
  • 1/4 teaspoon imitation rum or brandy extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon Stevia liquid to taste, or calorie-free sweetener of your choice to taste
  • 4 tablespoons Egg White pasteurized egg white from carton or egg white from 2 large eggs


  • Blend, whisk or beat all of the ingredients EXCEPT the egg white together until they are well combined.
  • Refrigerate 30 minutes to an hour to chill and allow to thicken.
  • Take out of fridge and whisk, scraping bottom to mix in any pudding blobs that have settled on the bottom.
  • In a separate bowl or jug, beat or whip the egg white to stiff peak, then whisk into the eggnog to blend.
  • Serve immediately, or store covered in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  • If it separates a bit (that’s natural for homemade eggnog), just whisk lightly to reblend
  • TIP: to reduce separation, you can add 1/8th teaspoon Xanthum Gum to the ingredients when first blending.


Adjust flavours as desired for your family’s traditions: sprinkles of fine lemon or orange zest done with a Microplane, served with a cinnamon stick, dusted with cocoa powder, etc, etc… Sweeten more to taste as desired.
