Power Nog

The holidays don't have to be a fitness train wreck. Come enjoy a cup of this protein rich Power Nog without the saturated fat, artificial flavors, added color, corn syrup or preservatives often found in processed eggnog cartons, and maintain your muscle gain throughout the holidays instead.

1 1/4 cup nonfat milk
1/3 cup liquid egg whites
1/4 cup vanilla protein drink
1/2 tsp cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
A dash of nutmeg

1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together milk, egg whites, protein drink and cornstarch
2. Stir continually over medium-high heat until hot and bubbly (about 7-10 minutes)
3. Remove from heat and add vanilla 
4. Pour into mugs and froth with an electric whisk
5. Sprinkle with a dash of nutmeg

Makes two servings 

To make this healthy, holiday workout recovery drink, I used Premier Protein from Costco, which comes in a liquid sweetened form, but any brand of vanilla whey protein will do. Just keep in mind that if you use an unsweetened vanilla protein powder you may need to add an additional 1/4 cup milk and sweeten to taste with maple syrup or agave.
