{Lightened Up} White Chocolate Pumpkin Nog

Egg nog is sort of one of those love it or hate it kind of things.

I love it.

Maybe a little bit too much, considering I could drink a carton of it by myself in just a matter of a few days.  And I am a person who doesn’t like milk.

Well, unless it’s chocolate.  Or noggy.

Even if you’re not a fan of eggnog, you should seriously try this. I made it last year during the holiday season as an experiment to see if it was a decent substitute for my favorite Southern Comfort brand.  And it is.

It totally is.

We made this no less than half a dozen times last season, and we’re well on our way to at least that this year.

Also?  I don’t feel one bit guilty drinking it.  This drink uses light vanilla soy milk, dry pudding mix, pumpkin puree, and lots of seasonal spices.  The pumpkin and the pudding mix thickens it up nicely, and the vanilla soy milk makes me feel like I’m drinking something healthy.  🙂

No cooking required, no worrying about salmonella.  Just five minutes and a blender, and you’re good to go!

{Lightened Up} White Chocolate Pumpkin Nog

  • 5 cups light vanilla soy milk
  • 1 small package sugar-free instant white chocolate pudding mix

      I know, most people either love or hate eggnog! My husband is impartial, but he does really like this version.

      Thanks, Sally. I’m an eggnog fanatic, but this version is simply to die for (it’s not bad with some rum thrown in, either!).

    And it’s healthy! Eeeeeeek. I’m in love with this for so many reasons, and I could count the ways, but eventually it’d just end up with me saying a bunch of gibber-gabber because I was too busy licking my screen. That aerial shot with the cinnamon–hubba, hubba. And I can’t believe you used pudding in the nog! No wonder you’ve made this so much 🙂

      Jocelyn, you are so kind! I am still using PicMonkey–I’ve just had some good luck with my lighting lately, I think. It’s often hard for me since I work an 8-5 job, which leaves little time for daytime pics–especially now that the days are getting so short! You totally have to try this nog–it really is so good!

    Oh. my. gosh. I am SO embarrassed! When was the last time I was here?? I LOVE THIS DESIGN and I am GREEN with envy that you got a Nifty Thrifty design!!!!!!! GREEN! As soon as I can afford it, I’m heading Vanessa’s way!

    Just so you know BTW– I totally keep up with your stuff on FB/Pinterest (even though I miss important stuff like AMAZING design changes actually ON your site!) and this recipe has been nagging at me every since I saw it! I HATE eggnog, but this looks amazing. Totally trying it!

      LOL. Vanessa is totally amazing, that is for sure. Now I’m just crossing my fingers I don’t do something to screw up her gorgeous design.

      And Ashton–I’ve sooooo been in awe over your pictures lately. Seriously, girl, you are getting SO GOOD.

        So sorry this is a late reply 😉 You are so sweet!! I’m always jealous of YOUR pictures– so it just goes to show, I guess 🙂 Plus– I feel like mine are so hit or miss. It’s like as soon as I start feeling really good about them, I’ll have 10 horrible shoots right in a row! Ah, well…. such is the life 🙂

10 EASY SLOW COOKER MEALS RECIPE BOOK

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
