creamy sip of this Mexican-inspired low-fat eggnog and you will know winter is
here again. In Mexico, a utensil called a "molinillo" is twirled in
the cups to make each drink creamy. This drink is best served hot with whipped
cream and nutmeg.
4 cups fat-free milk
3 egg yolks
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon imitation rum extract
Chocolate-flavored syrup to taste for each glass
Fat-free canned whipped cream or real whipped cream
Freshly ground nutmeg
In a large bowl, whisk the milk, egg yolks and sugar.
2. Set a 1 1/2-quart double boiler with about a 1/2-inch of water
in the base over medium heat. Water should come to a gentle boil
and should not touch upper pan. Sieve egg mixture into the top pan,
cook until thick, stirring
rum extract. Refrigerate until needed, then reheat.
3. Serve with chocolate-flavored syrup to taste, then top each
glass coffee cup with whipped cream and nutmeg.
