No-egg Eggnog

One of my favorite indulgences this time of year is eggnog and enjoying a glass of it around the holidays always brings back good memories.

Unfortunately, some of those good feelings faded when I looked at the nutritional facts on the side of the carton, so I went searching for a healthier version. This is one of my favorites, and it uses almond or soy milk as the base instead of heavy cream, so it saves quite a bit of calories and I feel better about enjoying a cup of holiday eggnog.
