Eggnog is full of saturated fat, says Maya Feller, MS, RD, CDN of US-based Maya Feller Nutrition.

That’s mainly because it consists of whole milk and heavy cream. “It also serves up a good dose of sugar, as much as five teaspoons per one cup serving,” Feller adds.

Instead of eggnog, she recommends an eggnog latte with a non-dairy base (like almond milk) and no added sugar. 

You can also use non-dairy milks in your Christmas baking. Check out these Christmas baking hacks.
