Welcome to the Christmas season!
December is almost here and we’re well into the holiday spirit. If you haven’t caught the Christmas bug yet, make a cheery cup of this – vegan eggnog!
It was sometime around February or March this last year when we realized how creamy and delicious coconut milk would be in an eggnog drink. We love coconut milk for it’s extra creamy consistency and flavor – it mimics cream or half and half so well! We clearly couldn’t make eggnog after January so this recipe was saved until now! While we may have let go of the dairy and eggs in this drink, there isn’t any unique ingredient alternatives used, making this eggnog seriously the easiest drink ever!! Even though it’s vegan, it tastes pretty similar to the traditional recipe. It may not taste exactly like the eggy stuff, but that is one reason we love it so much. It is completely creamy and flavorful – creating the tradition of classic eggnog so well. Cheers!
Vegan Sugar-Free Eggnog
2 cups Light canned Coconut Milk
1 cup Almond Milk
4 Tablespoons Maple Syrup (mostly for flavor so please don’t substitute)
1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg, divided
1/8 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Liquid Stevia
In a small mixing bowl, combine the two milks together. Whisk in all the other ingredients, reserving 1/4 teaspoon of Nutmeg for garnish. Pour into glasses and sprinkle with remaining nutmeg.
