Not everyone likes eggnog - but those who do love the hell out of it - and if you’re off dairy then the idea of the holidays sorta sucks without it. Have no fear - I’m here with a solution!!! … unless you’ve got a nut allergy - then you’re still fucked…
Serves: Ummmm like 4 or 5 I think… assuming you drink 1/2 cup at a time. Your call!
2 cups cashew milk (see tips below for alts) 1/2 cup coconut milk (go for full fat for full flavours - or do whatever your waist line is telling you)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp nutmeg, ground
1/4 tsp Cinnamon, ground
1/8 tsp Cloves, ground
4 medjool dates, (6-8 regular ones)
Before starting put your can of coconut in the milk for an hour.
Put everything into a high speed blender. Blend the fuck out of it.
Pour into glasses and sprinkle with nutmeg.
Cashew milk is the thickest options that made it feel rich, but if you’ve got a nut allergy perhaps try oat milk? You can use any type of milk in theory, but you want something with some volume to it.
If you want to thicken it even further soak 1/3 cup cashews the night before and add that in. Mmmmmm.
Want to make it boozy?! Go for it! Spiced rum, bourbon, brandy or whiskey are all excellent fucking choices? How much do you put in? Well, that shit is entirely up to you. Maybe start with a single shot and move up from there.
