Easy Eats: Guilt-Free Eggnog SmoothieRecipe By: Kris Carr
In her new book, Crazy Sexy Juice: 100+ Simple Juice Smoothie & Nut Milk Recipes to Supercharge Your Health, wellness advocate and New York Times best-selling author Kris Carr shares her tips for creating fresh, lip-smacking smoothies and deliciously creamy nut and seed milks. We love her no-guilt version of eggnog – it’s dairy and refined sugar free, plus it’s packed with all the festive flavors we’re craving right now.
This smoothie, which first appeared in Kris’s book Crazy Sexy Kitchen, will make you the most popular guest at any holiday party. It’s sweet, a little spicy, and every bit as creamy and delicious as traditional nog (without the dairy, refined sugar, and booze). Nutmeg is a tummy soother, which means that you can indulge in this decadent treat while also keeping your digestive system happy.
