How do you like your eggs? Skinny Eggnog cocktail

Naturally Thin Bethenny Frankel It’s the time of year to where eggnog tempts us. Even the low fat version is full of fat, sugar and fillers. Is there a way to make a healthier version of eggnog? Possibly with this recipe from Bethenny Frankel.

You probably know her from The Real Housewives of New York City. She’s also a natural-foods chef, the owner of the baked-goods company bethennybakes and author of Naturally Thin: Unleash Your SkinnyGirl and Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting. Bethenny also contributes to Health.com, which is where I found this intriguing holiday cocktail recipe.
