Traditional holiday eggnog is made with rich, high calorie, high fat ingredients. Although this traditional recipe is non-alcoholic, many recipes also call for 1+ cup of rum or brandy.
The Eggnog Wassail made-over recipe trades the whole milk and heavy cream for nonfat eggnog. Spicing it with apple cider, this eggnog blends fall and winter flavors together, making it a special nog for the holidays!
Combine eggnog, cider and spices in a large pot. Heat on low, stirring occasionally. Remove cloves and pour into glasses.
Can be served warm or cold.
Can replace the nonfat eggnog with an equal amount of soy/rice "egg nog" (such as Silk Nog), or reduced-fat honey-sweetened eggnog, if desired.
