Holly Nog Pudding

At Christmas time I bought a container of Holly Nog. This was for my daughter who was sad that she couldn't enjoy eggnog like her brother and father (lactose intollerant). We had already tried the Vitasoy peppermint drink, which dd thought was great. Along came the Holly Nog, and no one would touch it. It was pushed to the back of the fridge and forgotten. Until today. I brought it out and made it into pudding. It turned out well enough that the dc want to buy more 'Nog!
( I understand that there are lots of people who actually enjoy this drink, but it didn't fit our tastes. Don't be put off trying it out just because we didn't care for it- I've been assured that some people like it a lot better than regular eggnog.)

3c Holly Nog
4 egg yolks
1/2c brown sugar
1/4c corn starch
1Tbsp Earth Balance
2tsp vanilla

Whisk first four ingredients together in a large pan, then place over medium heat. Whisk constantly as mixture heats, and bring to a boil. Continue whisking boiling mixture for two minutes, and then remove from heat. Add Earth Balance and vanilla, and stir well. Cover the pan (or pour pudding into bowls and cover), and when cooled, place in fridge until chilled.
