Happy Fall, y'all!  One of my favorite things about Fall ... aside from the wonderful weather we enjoy here in North Carolina ... is pumpkin everything.  We see pumpkin everywhere we turn as soon as the Fall season hits.  And I love it.  At our house, we turn to favorite fall recipes like Pumpkin Banana Bread,  Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins, and even Pumpkin-Apple Waffles.

So when I came across a recipe for pumpkin nog, I just knew I had to try it.  Because I was totally intrigued.

I mean, Pumpkin Nog?  Who would have thought?

Better yet, White Chocolate  Pumpkin Nog?

Even better still, Skinny  White Chocolate Pumpkin Nog?

Oh yes, it had to be tried.

I came across the original recipe for this idea in Where Women Cook magazine , who was sharing it from the cookbook Hungry Girl 1-2-3: The Easiest, Most Delicious, Guilt-Free Recipes on the Planet.  The recipe takes advantage of sugar-free white chocolate pudding mix and vanilla soy milk to keep the pumpkin nog lower in calories and fat than traditional nog.

And, oh man, is this stuff good.

With the pudding mix, the texture of the nog turns out quite thick, pretty much just like you would expect with traditional egg nog.  The pumpkin flavor is prominent, with great notes of spice from pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon and nutmeg, and a good level of sweetness from the white chocolate pudding.

While the recipe as-is is plenty sweet enough for me, if you want it just a tad sweeter, simply add a bit of Stevia, Splenda, or granulated sugar.

You don't have to wait until Christmas to enjoy nog.  Nope.  You can enjoy a rich and delicious 'happy Fall' glass of nog with this easy White Chocolate Pumpkin Nog.  Oh, and without the usual nog-induced guilt too, because this fall version is even skinny.  Bonus!

So if you love egg nog, and you love pumpkin{and like yummy stuff}, give this White Chocolate Pumpkin Nog a try, for sure.  It's such a fabulous fall treat you'll definitely want to add to your "pumpkin everything" list.

Happy Fall, y'all!

No need to wait until Christmas to enjoy a glass of nog.  Whip up Skinny White Chocolate Pumpkin Nog for Fall.

White Chocolate Pumpkin Nog
(Printable recipe)
  • 5 c. light vanilla soy milk {regular milk can be used just fine}
  • 1 small package instant sugar-free white chocolate pudding mix
  • 3/4 c. 100% pure pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • pinch salt
  1. Combine all ingredients and whisk until smooth. Refrigerate for about 2 hours before serving to chill and allow the mixture to thicken slightly.
  2. When ready to serve, sprinkle each serving with a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg.  For a spiked version, add a splash of rum.
NOTE:  The result, as is, is plenty sweet enough for me.  If you'd like it a tad bit sweeter, add about 1 tablespoon Stevia, Splenda, or granulated sugar.
