Classic Egg Nog
Low Carbohydrate Recipe
This truly has a classic egg nog flavor. Splenda replaces real sugar which is what cuts the carbs. Makes a rich and creamy non-alcholic eggnog.
1/2 cup Splenda plus 2 tablespoons Splenda
2 eggs, separated
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups heavy cream
2 cups water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Brandy or rum flavoring to taste
1 teaspoon eggnog flavoring
1/2 cup whipping cream, whipped with sweetener of choice
Ground nutmeg and/or mace
Beat 1/2 cup Splenda with egg yolks. Add salt, stir in 2 cups cream and 2 cups water. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture coats a spoon. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Beat egg whites until foamy then gradually add remaining Splenda, beating to soft peaks. Add to cooked mixture and blend thoroughly. Add vanilla and flavoring(s). Chill at least 3 to 4 hours.
Pour into punch bowl or cups. Dot with "islands" of whipped cream. Sprinkle with nutmeg and/or mace.
