Nothing tastes better on a bone-chilling day than a piping hot beverage. The problem is many popular coffee shop concoctions hide loads of calories in whipped cream, fatty flavored syrups, and sugary toppings. These warm bevvies, stripped of unnecessary calories and saturated fats, offer deliciously healthy alternatives made with good-for-you ingredients.

Made with whole eggs and heavy condensed milk, most eggnogs sneak hundreds of extra calories into your diet. Give this festive brew a nutritious makeover—without sacrificing its signature velvety texture—by incorporating skim milk and stevia.
1 egg yolk, beaten
1/4 c. skim milk
1 tsp. stevia
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Ground nutmeg to taste
1/8 c. light whipping cream
Beat the egg yolk, skim milk and stevia in a bowl. Pour in a pot and cook over medium heat. Stir in vanilla and ground nutmeg. Right before serving, beat light whipping cream into the mixture until soft peaks form. Sprinkle with ground nutmeg.
Makes one serving.
