My kids, okay-okay & I, love the eggnog milkshakes that are available this time of year. However, my rule of thumb is that it’s a ‘once in a while kind of treat’. I try to teach, and live, a lifestyle that keeps in step with my grandfather’s philosophy of ‘everything in moderation’ who lived a very long & healthy life. When I searched the internet, I was not surprised to learn that the McDonald’s small sized eggnog milkshake was 420 calories (Yikes).
As a solution I have created a version of this drink and am sharing my Eggnog Fake Shake for a little taste testing fun. We plugged it into the My Fitness Pal calorie calculator, this recipe serves three of us at one time & is only 348 calories for the ENTIRE BLENDER, which means it’s only 116 per glass. This means DOUBLE YUM on this recipe because it’s full of delicious flavor & cuts the calories when we are already indulging more than usual.
So, grab the blender & the kids, and give the recipe try for an experimental sip. It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s festive & it’s delicious.
