When I was a kid one of my favorite things to do with Mom was make egg creams. I have fond memories of stirring the concoction with a large tablespoon and drinking the frothy result. Mustache and all. :)

I also remember asking her why in the world they were called egg creams when we didn’t use any eggs or cream to make them. I’m not quite sure she knew and after a little research I’m not sure anyone really does.

Mom's Egg CreamTonight I just had a craving for one and while making it I realized… what a fun lite treat! Especially with a few simple substitutions.

  • 1 tbsp lite chocolate syrup (35g)
  • 4 oz Skim milk
  • 6 oz of unflavored seltzer (although cherry would be good!) :)

Put all ingredients in a glass and mix well until you get a frothy top.

Unfortunately my seltzer wasn’t to fresh so I didn’t get many bubbles but it tasted just like I remembered and it’s been at least 20 years since I had one.

By the way I have gotten a new camera, Canon EOS Rebel T1i. I’m still learning how to use it so bear with my as my pictures may not be up to snuff for a few weeks. :)

Oh! and I have to say… the kid was NOT a fan. I think he was expecting regular chocolate milk so the “fuzziness” through him off. lol

    Have you ever tried Moose Milk? I think that is what it is called. Root beer and milk. It tastes like a root beer float! I use skim milk and diet root beer – yum!

    The Moose Milk I have tried before had LOTS of liquor in it and Icecream! LOL! It is supposed to be a Canadian specialty (or so they told me)!

    I think they call it egg cream because the foam at the top of the drink looks like semi-whipped egg whites? Don’t quote me on this lol it was a shot in the dark.
    This looks super yummy. When I visit my grandparents in Rhode Island they have a coffee syrup in store and you just mix it with milk for a… coffee milk (that’s what they call it).
    I really want coffee milk now and I want to add the seltzer water to it.
