It’s that time of year! I’m an eggnog lover and for the trillion calories per half cup, I’m all set. So I came up with my best version of it that wouldn’t cause you to gain 8lbs sniffing it. Yes I used raw pasteurized egg yolks and I’m still alive! Give it a try. I think it tasted pretty amazing. You can also adjust sweetness to your liking.


Healthy Pumpkin Eggnog Smoothie Recipe


  • 1 cup milk or milk alternative (I used almond milk)
  • 1 egg yolk (raw)
  • 1.5 teaspoons gelatin
  • 137 grams roasted pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup sweetener of choice (I used Splenda but honey, stevia or anything would work)
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

Put all items in blender and blend, voila!
*If using puréed pumpkin you may need to add ice to thicken it up a bit.
