Give Eggnog Coffee a try! Eggnog itself is just too thick for my liking. I have never enjoyed drinking it straight. It's like drinking heavy whipping cream. I just can't justify how many calories are sliding down the hatch. In coffee though, used as a creamer, it is perfect!
I am not a creamer person... Let me restate that... My plump behind and "sturdy" thighs do not allow me to indulge in creamer on a regular basis. Therefor, to prevent unwanted growth, I drink my cup-o-joe straight up. The blacker the better. Thick, strong, take it out of your cup - stretch it and put it back type of coffee....Diesel fuel.
But! Curiosity killed the cat...and has also put a temporary kink in my New Years diet and exercise plan. This stuff is gooooood. I suppose I can always press the restart button on the elliptical as soon as the 1/2 gallon of eggnog in my fridge is gone. Until then I will live in stretchy yoga pants and enjoy every sip!
If you don't have any leftover, you can probably find it on sale now that Christmas is over. I found my 1/2 gallon eggnog at the grocery store on clearance for 99 cents! Yippee!! Eggnog supplies the right amount of sweetness for my personal taste, but if you are needing a bit more, slip a little sugar or Splenda in there:)
