Homemade Eggnog Recipe?

I love eggnog but, like one other poster, can feel my arteries clogging just thinking about it. Anyone know of a homemade eggnog recipe that could be made with lower (not zero) fat, and somewhat less sugar, and still be delicious?

Thank for posting this fabulous-sounding recipe. Can't wait to try it. To cut calories and sugar, I sometimes use ZSweet (erythritol) instead of sugar, and it sounds like this would work great here. This will need no rum!

I've never seen anyone drink it with a shot chaser. That's interesting Babe. What type of booze do you chase it with?

lol, tim, i mean a shot of insulin. my statement wasn't clear. although that might be interesting.

Ha! Now I can see how you meant it, but I really did think you meant a shot of liquor. I know a lot of people like to put liquor in thier eggnog, but I could never stand the taste. I thought maybe you found a way to do both without mixing them.

another, even lower cholesterol egg nog substitute: Plain soy milk has a certain amount of viscosity in it that makes it "creamy". I've found that a cup of soy milk, combined with 1/2 tsp. of nutmeg, plus 1 tsp. of vanilla extract, plus sweetener of choice makes a beverage that tastes suprisingly like eggnog. It's not quite as thick, but sure tastes great. It could be made thicker by heating and adding just a little corn starch. But be careful with how much corn starch you use as I don't think egg nog flavored gravy would be all that appetizing. Oh, but wait, make it thick and you could call it egg nog pudding.

"Silk", the makers of one Soy Brand, already beat you to that one. They've put out a really good "Egg Nog" for many years. It's just not as thick.
