Low-Fat Eggnog Recipe

Try This Eggnog Cocktail With a Healthy Twist

Nothing says holiday happy hour like a classic eggnog cocktail. While this thick and frothy drink may be a holiday tradition, its heavy cream base offers nothing friendly to your waistline. For a lighter take on this creamy drink, we turned to Richard Blais, the winner of Bravo's Top Chef All-Stars. Blais lightened up this drink using protein-packed Greek yogurt instead of heavy cream. Finish with nutmeg, vanilla, and a pinch of cinnamon for a reduced-guilt drink that is just as decedent as it is delicious!
