Love That Nog, But Not the Calories

Are you a lover of nog? Yeah, we are too!

But oh my, it's so high in caloric values and fat grams when it is of the full-blown form. That full-blown goodness will put a full-blown something or another right onto the body in the worst of places.

However, we can still love nog without blowing out our hips and thighs with our lower calorie recipe for holiday egg nog, just one diet egg nog recipe that you'll find at Diet Bites.

Diet Egg Nog Shake Recipe Ingredients

1/2 cup of skim milk
1/2 cup of reduced fat egg nog
1/3 cup of reduced fat or regular egg nog ice cream or frozen yogurt
egg nogpinch of ground nutmeg - and only a pinch as it can be lethal in high doses
1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon OR pumpkin pie spice

How to Prepare This Recipe

Place all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until thick. The shake contains about 175 calories - so this should be an occasional treat.

Lowering the Fat Without Sacrificing Flavor

Egg Nog Diet Tip #1

Take 1 cup of skim or reduced fat milk and add 1 Tablespoon of Coffee-Mate Eggnog flavor creamer found in the dairy case at your local market.

Yes, this will contain about 35 Kcals but it will add that classic flavor without adding a significant amount of dietary fat. Keep in mind that it's those fatty acids which are responsible for bumping-up the energy content of foods and drinks.

If you need more sweetener, add some Splenda which contains zero values.

Blend the liquid until it is nice and foamy - much like a latte appears.

This recipe serves one for about 120 calories when the skim milk is used.

Add just a bit of grated chocolate and crushed peppermint for a skinny shake with a little kick.

Egg Nog Diet Tip #2

Lucky for we-dieters that are watching our waist-line, the markets have reduced calorie nogs popping up in the dairy section of most local markets. We've seen the calories go as steep as 450 in regular egg nog. The diet or low fat varieties that we've seen hold as little as 150 calories. That's quite a bargain, calorie wise were nog is involved.

Egg Nog Diet Tip #3

If you like coffee, try out the low fat egg nog creamers.

Egg Nog Diet Tip #4

If your family only likes the regular full-fat nog, you can add 1/2 of it to a small glass. Fill the rest with reduced fat milk. If you like your nog stronger, use 3/4 cup and 1/4 cup of the milk.
