And more leftovers . . .

Not to beat the leftover topic to death, but I've just got to use more things up around here.  I bought a carton of eggnog for my guests that never got opened.  What to do, what to do . . . mmm . . .

After thinking awhile, I pictured a creamy breakfast smoothie with hints of holiday flavors as the holidays begin to drift away for another year.  A sprinkling of nutmeg on top completed the picture and my delicious breakfast began.

Eggnog Smoothie

1/2 cup (light) eggnog
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon ground flax seed
2 medium bananas, cut in chunks
Sweetener, to taste
6 ice cubes
Ground nutmeg for garnish, optional

Pour eggnog and water into blender container.  Add flax seed, then bananas and sweetener, if using.  Finally, add ice cubes and blend on high speed 30 seconds until smooth.  Pour into two glasses and sprinkle with nutmeg, if desired.  Each serving has 2 points plus for Weight Watchers or 170 calories.
