I love eggnog lattes–more than pumpkin spice lattes. So when I was at Starbucks last week and saw eggnog lattes on the menu, I ordered one. That led to me ordering another the next day. Then I looked up the calorie count. OY! A nonfat eggnog latte was something like 264 calories. It was time to make them myself.
At Albertson’s I bought a carton of lowfat organic eggnog (Horizon Farms) and got to brewing. One quarter cup of eggnog in my frothing pot warmed up, espresso brewed in my IKEA expresso maker, and voila! An eggnog latte at 74 calories. And it tastes divine–better than Starbucks.
Here’s everything you need: A frother and espresso maker (bought at IKEA or Sur le Table or Amazon or wherever), a slim pot to heat the eggnog in and a big round cup from which to sip. I dust the top with nutmeg. Enjoy!
