This Skinny Low Carb Peppermint Eggnog is rich, creamy and decadent without any eggs (or guilt!) This is perfect for those with egg allergies and it takes only a few minutes to prepare. This post is sponsored by truwhip.
The kitchen is almost done and I am SO ready to create recipes for you guys!
I knew I had to think of a fun and festive holiday recipe since it’s December and I am so excited to share this with you!
Sooooooo....let's talk eggnog. Do you love it?
I feel like most people love it, am I right?
We always made our family's special Italian Eggnog recipe every Christmas Eve.
It was handed down from my grandparents on my mother's side of the family and it was always one our family Christmas traditions.
My father made it the day before because it always was a process of steps you would have to follow.
We had the big, fancy glass punch bowl, large glass ladle and all of the matching glass mugs (or glasses).
It was always a huge hit. Everyone loved it!
Shocking, I am sure.
It just seemed so heavy and thick and, well it just wasn't my thing.
I mean, I don't want to ruin your fun, but aren't there raw eggs on there? Gulp.
But everyone I know LOVES eggnog, so I thought I would make a lightened up, easier version.
If you are like me, you don’t love eggnog because of the raw eggs.
Now don’t get me wrong, I ADORE eggs, just not in my drinks. And preferably not raw.
Obviously this isn’t your typical, classic eggnog recipe, but thanks to truwhip, it is still rich and creamy!
Truwhip is unlike the other store bought whipped toppings you will find in the grocery stores, filled with nasty chemicals and GMO’s.
Truwhip uses real ingredients, no high fructose corn syrup or GMO’s and has a similar silky smooth texture to real whipped cream.
Sounds like the perfect alternative to raw eggs and heavy cream, doesn't it?
I used truwhip Skinny, which has only 25 calories and only 2 grams of sugar per 2 tablespoons. As you know, I am mostly sugar free so this is perfect for my low carb lifestyle.
And I realize that it is the holiday season and we indulge way more than usual, but I am always looking for ways to cut back on unnecessary calories if I can.
The best part about this eggless eggnog is that you just put everything in the blender, whip it up and chill for a few hours.
It’s perfect for holiday parties and family get togethers! I topped these babies off with truwhirl, which is squeezable frozen whipped topping.
It’s light and airy and easy to use!
I am all about easy these days.
This goes without saying but you can easily leave out the alcohol for a kid friendly drink or even a mocktail. They are still light and festive and kids can be part of the celebration!
Top it with fresh cinnamon or nutmeg and you have yourself a delicious, festive cocktail (or mocktail) for the holidays!
