Oh my nog.
It doesn’t get better than this.
Creamy deliciousness topped with a high protein sweet whip… zomg take me away.
I did two things with my leftover homemade eggnog – pancakes and a smoothie.
And when all was said and done, I wish I had just made two smoothies and been done with it. The pancakes were good, but the smoothie was better.
Thankfully, I now know just how easy it is to make eggnog that making another batch doesn’t intimidate me. Maybe this time I’ll sweetened it with 2 medjool dates to lower the sugar content even further.
Until then, I’ll just stare at this picture and remind myself how darn tasty this was!

A high protein, low calorie whipped topping that’s sure to compliment any bar, cookie, cake or… smoothie.
Yield: 1/2 cup
- 2 tablespoon egg whites
- 1 drop vanilla stevia liquid concentrate *see note
- Combine ingredients in a small bowl and whip with hand blender or whisk for 1 minute.
note: if you don’t have stevia, or don’t like the taste, you could also use 1/4 teaspoon liquid sweetener like honey or maple syrup with 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Go an extra step by turning your homemade eggnog into a delicious breakfast treat!
- 1 cup homemade eggnog

- 1 frozen banana *see note
- 1 scoop protein powder – I used Jay Robb vanilla egg protein
- 1 tablespoon chia seed
- Place all ingredients in your blender and blend until smooth.
- Top with vanilla whip and a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg.
note: if you don’t want to use a banana, replace with 2-3 extra ice cubes depending on how icy you want your smoothie.
