Vanilla Eggnog Protein Shake

Eggnog is delicious, but also loaded with fat. Try this healthier version, even better in the form of a creamy Shakelogy smoothie, that will still have you feeling festive. This vanilla eggnog protein shake gets its holiday flavor – without the accompanying tipsiness – from rum extract and ground nutmeg. Look for rum extract in the baking aisle of your supermarket, or online (click for link).
