Toast in the New Year with Egg-Free Eggnog

eggnog (gluten free and vegan)by elana’s pantry

To all my readers- all my long time readers of  TheGardenLady blog and new readers, young of heart and old of spirit readers, TheGardenLady wishes you all a happy, healthy New Year with wonderful, successful gardening in 2013.

May I offer a toast to all with my favorite nonfattening, nonalcoholic, egg-free eggnog.

Why would I leave the best ingredients out of my eggnog? I don’t know about you, but this GardenLady’s annual New Year’s resolution is always to lose weight: so after a December of celebrating, I am going to try to avoid heavy whipping cream; since I am the designated driver on New Year’s Eve, I don’t want to consume alcohol; and I always worry about eating raw eggs and possibly getting salmonella. [For more information about how to prevent salmonella when eating eggs, read this website.

What is my favorite recipe for this nonfattening (well, really a much less fattening drink), nonalcoholic, egg free eggnog that everyone of any age can use to toast in the New Year?

Mix 1 (3oz) package of instant French vanilla pudding or instant plain vanilla pudding or vegetarian instant pudding with 1 cup milk. I use Skim Plus Skim milk. Beat until pudding is thick.

Then add:
1/2 sugar, more or less to taste or use Stevia to taste
2 tsp. vanilla plus 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg and 7 more cups of the milk. [This will make a total of 8 cups of fake eggnog.]

Chill and Sprinkle cinnamon on top before serving.

I look forward to hearing from my readers with comments, photos of plants and gardens, and questions.

May 2013 be the best year ever.
