Soy Eggnog



OK...I know this is an art blog- but sometimes you need to go off on a tangent and talk about other things.

Last night the husband and I were out at the grocery store getting some items to make dinner with. While walking through the dairy aisle we suddenly had a craving for eggnog! Strange craving I know..we never drink eggnog so it surprised us to!

Eggnog is soooo bad for you so we were looking for the light eggnogs. I discovered that Silk makes a soy eggnog! It only has 90 calories and 2 grams of fat per 1/2 cup...much healthier!

The husband was very skeptical at first...what could this eggnog be made with if it was vegan? When we got home we tried it and were pleasantly surprised at the taste! Yum! The only major difference to me was the thickness...it is pretty thin.

So this holiday season if you would like to try a light and dairy free version of eggnog...I am recommending Silk! Oh- it also makes great coffee creamer! I am drinking it now in my coffee and it is delicious!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend...I have been doing all of my Christmas shopping online but still have to do some in- store shopping (blah!) I am going to try and go on Monday when hopefully people will be at work. I have been doing most of my shopping at Amazon.com because you can find almost anything! You also can make wish lists and look at other people's wish lists. Amazing! I also have been doing a ton of shopping on etsy.com. My favorite place! Great unique handmade gifts to give people:)

Where are you doing most of your Christmas shopping?
