Better-for-You Tip: To all the naysayers who ever thought that it would be impossible to make a rich and creamy holiday egg nog without starting out with heavy cream, lots of sugar, and a boat load of eggs, it’s time to take notice. By thickening the base with cornstarch, cutting way back on the sugar, and using low-fat milk, we still get the rich texture we love, without all the calories, fat, and cholesterol. Plus, if we sip this in moderation, we most likely won’t end up with a belly like Santa.
