Bootleg eggnog latte recipe

I made this up yesterday and I'm really digging it. I don't think I've said here that I started Weight Watchers a couple months ago. I've lost 13 pounds so far. The eggnog latte at The Coffee Shop That Shall Not Be Named is 11 Weight Watchers points. For one grande! My drink is probably not even a full point since a whole cup of soy milk is 2 points.

It's not exactly the real thing, but it works for me. Here's the recipe:

strong coffee
generous splash soy milk (as much milk/cream as you may usually like in your coffee)
1 pk Splenda
dash cinnamon
dash nutmeg
splash vanilla extract
splash imitation rum extract

Tasty!

My first reaction was to tell you what store brand of eggnog to go by and how much Armagnac to put in it, but I haven't lost an ounce. So, I'll follow your lead on this one!

Merry, Merry Christmas to you and yours! And, I wish you the brightest New Year!
