It's back!!!!

Silk's version of Egg Nog. I loved this last year and it's back in the stores. Get it while you can it's only available till about January. Look for it with the soy milks or refrigerated egg nogs. It comes in the quart size only (why oh why). It contains no milk or eggs so it's lower fat, calorie, and cholesterol then the classic version. If you are lactose intolerant or just want a yummy alternative to the fattening holiday treat. Try some.

Serving Size: 1/2 cup
Calories: 90 (versus 200+ of the classic)
Fat: 2g
Carbs: 15g
Sugars: 12g
Protein: 3g

If you dump easily watch it (sugars).

How I use it: Egg Nog Protein Shake 4 oz. water, 4 oz. Silk Nog, 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, 2-3 ice cubes, blend. Dash nutmeg on top. It's Christmas in a glass.

Make Egg Nog Protein Ice Cream or freeze this concoction in some of these to make Protein Popsicles.

A great way to get the egg nog flavor (nutmeg spice wonderfulness) without consuming too much is to splash some in your coffee or espresso to make your own homemade version of Starbuck's Egg Nog Latte. I won't tell if you splash some Rum or Kahlua in too.
