Skinny Eggnog Cake

Need an easy dessert to bring to a Holiday party?

This cake is easy and delicious. Simply combine a yellow box cake mix with nutmeg, Chobani, water and egg whites and you’ll have a deliciously light cake ready in no time. Top the cake with some whipped topping spiked with rum or rum extract and dessert is ready!

I used Truwhip[1] as a healthier alternative to Cool Whip, which contains no HFCS, hydrogenated oils, transfats
or GMOs. I heard Trader Joe’s also carries a similar whipped topping if you are lucky enough to have one near you. Happy Holidays!!
