I have loved eggnog for as long as I can remember. My Dad would always buy a big can of it, and I would happily sip a cup of it during the holidays. I had never had homemade eggnog until last year. Our neighbor and good friend bought it over. It was her father’s recipe. Actually she made it, but it was her husband who brought it over for our Christmas party in a gorgeous punch bowl. They were so excited to share it with us, and I was so excited that I absolutely adored it. This memory is a little bitter-sweet now, as Rich passed away suddenly this year. Every time I think of eggnog, I see Rich, a very tall man with a big smile on his lips underneath his mustache, at my door. Rich was always popping over with something. He loved to give. I doubt he knows what an impact he made in our lives, and that we will fondly think of him this year and say a toast to him.

While I love homemade eggnog, the calories make it prohibitive for me. When Silk asked me to try their Silk Nog, I jumped at the chance. A serving is only 80 calories, yes 80. Boy do I love that. We happened to be out of milk one morning so I made a Dairy Free Eggnog Latte out of it. Oh my, was that good. You will be getting that recipe very soon. What I really wanted to do with it was make cookies. I want the flavor of eggnog in everything. It was love at first bite of cookie for me. I was not anticipating it would be love from the rest of my family. They like eggnog, but I love it. How wrong I was! I had to share, in fact I had to fight to have another. My husband, who is not a sweet lover, was gobbling them up. My daughter, who had professed to hate eggnog before trying one, kept begging for more. Apparently Lucy, our dog, also loved them. The last two were left in a bag on the table. I came home to find a ripped up bag and the cookies gone. NO! I was looking forward to them. Next time I am doubling the recipe; next time will be next week. I cannot wait to make them again.

You can do so much with Silk Nog, beside just enjoying a glass. You can find more delicious recipes, a digital holiday recipe book, coupons and more at Silk.  Silk products are dairy free, egg free and has no saturated fat. I do not have to worry about dairy or eggs, but I love that it has no saturated fat.  I often turn to Silk products, because they are delicious and often lower in calories.
