Skinny Eggnog Latte and Frappe

Hi Everyone and Happy Black Friday!

As you read this, I will be running around Walnut Creek looking for fun Christmas presents for my Friends, Family and me!  he he  Since Thanksgiving is over, I think it’s the official beginning of the holiday season!  So to kick off the holiday season I have a drink for you!!

I totally had fun playing around with dressing the photo’s.  It looks cold doesn’t it?  Well maybe you need to warm up to a nice hot Eggnog Latte.  The eggnog latte is made with lite eggnog, skim milk and stevia.  I whipped it together on the stove, and poured my mixture into a cup of hot freshly brewed coffee and gave it to Jenny before she went to school.  I’ll be completely honest with you, I am not an eggnog fan!  I tried it last year and I tried it again this year and I am just not a fan!  However my family goes bonkers for the stuff!  My Husband asked me to make homemade eggnog and after looking at the ingredients, I thought, nah!  They can just buy it themselves.  But I did get an honest opinion for the latte from Jenny.  One thing about family, they are pretty honest.  No one cares about saving your feelings.  Sometimes I think were all a little to honest!  Anyway, I asked her what she thought and she said it tasted so good.  She told me she is picky about eggnog and she loved the drink.  She told me I needed to put it on my blog!  So there you go an honest opinion!  I’m glad it turned out!  I do have lot more eggnog recipes to share with you this holiday season, but I can’t make them till someone is home to test it because I am not the best tester for anything eggnog!!

The Eggnog Frappuccino is basically the same recipe as the latte, but chilled.  It’s made with lite eggnog, skim milk and cold strong brewed coffee.  I put it all together in my blender with a few ice cubes and presto I have a nice cold frappuccino.  Delish!!  Well according to Jenny it is!  For me, I’ll stick to my Peppermint Frappes!  They are my favorite drink right now!!

I have to tell you one thing I do love about these drinks is the nutmeg!  I love shaving it onto my drinks, so cute!!!  I also love the smell.  That’s kind of weird isn’t it.  I think nutmeg  is so winter and so are these drinks!  They scream Christmas!!!  If you want to be naughty, you can add a little bit of rum to the latte!  But shhhh, I didn’t tell you that!  :)

Now my Starbucks comparison to the latte.

Starbucks Eggnog Latte Short ( 8oz), non-fat milk:  Calories:  220,  Fat:  9,  Carbs:  27,  Fiber:  0,  Sugar:  24,  Protein:  8

PB&P’s Skinny Eggnog Latte, 8 oz:  Calories:  151.4,  Fat:  3.1,  Carbs:  25,  Sugar:  24,  Fiber:  0 Sugar:  24,  Protein:  7.1

Well let’s see here, it seems were kind of close in some categories.  Mine is fewer calories (by almost 70), less fat (more than half), a little less carbs and sugar.  So I think mine is better!  I like the less fat!!!

Hmmm, do they make a fat-free eggnog?  I’ll have to look into that!  If you know, let me know!  Until then it’s time for me to go, time to make dinner before my Husband gets home.  I’m excited to make the Eggnog Latte for him tonight.  I think he will be impressed!!

Have a lovely Friday!!  Hope it’s not to crazy and hectic for you!

Toodles,

P.S.  My question for you today is, Do you like Eggnog?
