Creamy Veggnog

Vegan EggnogEggnog is the official beverage of December. It’s rare to encounter it any other time, and truly is Christmas spirit in a cup.  We were so pleased when we whipped up this vegan eggnog mixture and created an egg-free version to sip with some spiced rum or on its own. Extra nutmeg always welcome!

Serves: 4 to 6

  • 1 cup soaked cashews
  • 1 cup soaked dates in 1 cup water
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg + more to garnish
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste (or extract)
  • Pinch of sea salt

Pour all ingredients into a blender (including the water you soaked the dates in) and blend until smooth and frothy. This can take a few minutes in an older blender. Transfer to a container and chill in the refrigerator until needed.

When ready to serve, place back into blender to allow more frothing because mixture can separate. Pour into a mug and garnish with fresh grated nutmeg.
