This High Protein Eggnog Smoothie is a healthy recipe to start off the holidays, or any day. A festive vegetarian and gluten-free breakfast on the go!
On a scale of Jewish to Rudolph, how much are you feeling the Christmas spirit right now?!
I’ll be honest, before this past weekend, it didn’t feel a tinsel like Christmas. Yet somehow, slapping on an elf hat, painting on rosy cheeks, and getting drunk with a hundred other Christmas spectacles at Santacon seemed to give me a hit of the holiday spirit.
Speaking of spirits, let’s start off with the one, the only drink of the season. NOG.
Love it. Hate it. It’s still the spirit of Christmas in a fat and sugar laden glass of eggs and cream. Topped with nutmeg. Festive!
But I love it. Mostly mixed into my morning glass of coffee since it’s just a little heavy. Not to mention a hefty 170 calories for HALF A CUP. AKA like two sips.
So I used my noggin to get a-noggin’, but healthy enough to drink for breakfast.
That’s where my first experience with Blue Diamond’s Almondmilk / Cashewmilk blend comes in. I knew cashew milk was a bit creamier than almond milk, which would work wonders on trying to replicate the 170 calorie richness of nog, with 25 calorie nut milk.
High in protein, but that creamy dreamy sweetness you know in love. Or hate. I’ll be changing that now. 😉
