4 cups skim milk

1 package Jell-O sugar free instant vanilla pudding

mix -- (4 serving size)

"Eggnog MUST be served at all holiday functions.
Isn't that the law of the land? Well here's my
version--prepared without eggs, sugar, fat, or liquor, it
still tastes exactly like traditional eggnog." JoAnna Lund

1. In a large pitcher, combine skim milk, dry pudding
mix, rum extract, and nutmeg. Mix well using a long
spoon. Refrigerate 5 minutes. Gently stir again.
Serve at once. Makes 4 (1 cup) servings.

HINT: If you like thinner eggnog, add 1 cup of cold
water when adding skim milk.
