This still has far too much fat and sugar in it for us.
For a quick and easy and healthy version, why not just make an old-fashioned egg-flip with your choice of alcohol added?
I start with well-chilled skim milk, chilled eggs, nutmeg, vanilla extract and sugar substitute of choice, whisk thoroughly (a must) with a stick blender or in a blender. Cover and chill until needed, blend again and serve with extra nutmeg. It may not be as thick or even as creamy but, if you're coming to this site for your health, then you will appreciate not putting on weight/fat along with your eggnog. This has helped my diet every christmas. Enjoy!

Try using Stevia powder to sweeten. Sugar should be not adding anything to the lowfat eggnog recipe as far as texture, just sweetness. Stevia is great in liquid recipes where sugar does not have to interact with refined flours or fats to create texture (as in leavened baked goods like cakes). A tiny bit goes a looooong way with Stevia.

Making a custard requires attention to the process. If this is too much work, then yes, buy commercial eggnog with the artificial thickeners and odd flavors. If you have never had homemade eggnog, it is a real treat.

Delicious :-)

I like preparing recipes at home to enjoy with family and friends and this one's a bonus with less calorires than the usual one. Where we live they don't sell eggnog, we usually had to do with something 'similar' (or not so much).

Just great for the ones who can't buy the lowfat one.

Try splenda instead of sugar.

A half hour is to much work?

A half hour is to much work? Why cook at all, then. Just do store-bought everything. Guess you don't really enjoy cooking.

Good eggnog isn't fast! That's why you make it at home. It's way better than store bought.This is actually a really easy recipe compared to some I've seen.

Does anyone know how to reduce the sugar in this a little bit without affecting the texture/taste? Maybe 1/2 sugar, 1/2 agave syrup or something like that? Thanks.
