If there’s one drink that stands out to me during the Christmas season it’s gotta be eggnog! 

Traditionally, eggnog is made with, well eggs, of course, milk, cream sugar, and spices. Definitely a decadent drink, but may not be the best if you don’t like to consume raw eggs or don’t drink dairy. 

This homemade vegan eggnog is a great dairy-free and egg-free alternative to a traditional eggnog, that also happens to be made with super healthy ingredients, and no added-sugar. So it’s basically a Christmas miracle!

A few notes on this recipe: 

This homemade vegan eggnog starts with a base of raw cashews, which are blended up into a cashew milk. I use Sunfood Superfoods raw unsalted cashews in this recipe, which are my go-to for making cashew milk! If you don’t like cashews, you can also use almonds, macadamia nuts, or even just go with some coconut milk if you’re looking for a nut-free option. 

The eggnog then gets sweetened with Medjool dates, which are naturally very sweet and give a caramel-like flavour to the eggnog. 

For the spices, we are using a blend of nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. The nutmeg is definitely essential to making the eggnog taste like a classic eggnog, but if you don’t have the other spices on hand you can leave them out. 

You also have the option to add some bourbon or rum (or any type of alcohol you like) to the eggnog to make it a little more indulgent! 😉 

I like to chill the eggnog in the fridge for at least an hour after blending it up so it’s nice and cold when I serve it.
