Missing egg nog this holiday? No worries! Make up some of your own egg free and Dairy Free Egg Nog, 2 ways: lighter/lower calorie and extra creamy! - @TheFitCookie #vegan #glutenfree

No Christmas holiday is not complete without a good dose of eggnog. But what can you do if you are allergic to eggs? Sure, Silk and some other brands have vegan eggnog on the market, but it is much more fun to make your own Holiday “Egg” Nog that’s egg and dairy-free!

First, you know exactly what is in your drink because you made it yourself. Second, some store bought egg-free eggnogs are still high calorie and have a lot of sugar in them, not so great if you are watching your diet. Third, you can have fun with the recipes and make them uniquely yours!

Here are two egg-free eggnog recipes to try out: one is a leaner version for those watching their diet, and the other is a higher calorie (but still yummy!) version. Both can be made any way you like and can be whipped up in a pinch!

If you still want something nearly calorie free, look no further than eggnog flavored tea! I like this tea with a splash of milk and a little stevia. The Bigelow Eggnogg’n Tea is gluten free, but it does contain soy lecithin as part of the flavorings.
