How To Make Low Fat Eggnog

Reminisce childhood Christmas joys with this classic and low fat eggnog recipe that is creamy and rich, better than the store-bought eggnog.

Preparation: 5 minutes
Total: 5 minutes



  • 3cups1% milk
  • 1vanilla bean
  • 2largeeggs
  • cupsugar
  • 1tspcornstarch
  • nutmeg,freshly grated, to garnish
  • spiced rum,or bourbon, optional, extra points


  1. Heat 2-½ cups of milk in a medium saucepan.

  2. Split the vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Add the seeds and pod to the saucepan, and simmer over medium heat.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, sugar, and cornstarch until it turns light yellow.

  4. Temper the eggs by gradually pouring the hot milk mixture, about 1 cup at a time, into the egg mixture, whisking constantly (this is important, otherwise, you’ll make scrambled eggs).

  5. Pour the mixture back into the pan.

  6. Place over medium heat and stir constantly with a wooden spoon until the eggnog begins to thicken, in about 6 to 7 minutes.

  7. Remove from the heat and immediately stir in the remaining ½ cup milk to stop the cooking.

  8. Remove the vanilla pod, let it cool, and transfer to a pitcher. Chill until ready to serve.

  9. Spike the eggnog with liquor, if desired, and garnish with nutmeg.
