I wanted to make an eggnog that was healthier so I used this recipe as a base. I'm sorry I'm going to be one of those people who totally changes the recipe and then writes a review... I really didn't change it that much, though. :) Instead of egg, I used egg beaters to cut back the calories and cholesterol. I beat the sugar into the egg beaters, mixed in a dash of nutmeg and tsp of vanilla and a TBLS of Rum. I heated the skim milk in a double boiler with cornstarch to thicken (I used a tsp this time, but next time I might use a little more [mix equal parts cornstarch and cold milk before adding to the double boiler]). Used the double boiler so I wouldn't scald the milk and change the taste too much. heat just until you see a few little bubbles. remove from heat and let the milk cool enough so when you add to the egg mixture it doesn't cook the eggs. mix everything together and chill until cold. garnish as desired and voila...healthier and thicker version of this recipe. Still not as awesome as the real stuff from the store but a pretty decent alternative.
