Foodie Friday : Vegan friendly eggnog - 2 ways!

Caitlin of Real Swanky invites us into her little teal kitchen to make a holiday favourite, eggnog!, while skipping on the eggs. This eggnog is dairy, gluten and egg-free while still packing a flavourful punch.

4 pitted medjool dates + 3/4 cup raw cashews, soaked in 1 can coconut milk for 30+ minutes
1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla bean paste

optional - 1 tbsp agave
optional - dash of turmeric, for colour

1 cup water

Blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy. Add the one cup water in last, and slowly, and blend again. Chill before drinking. That's that!


More reminiscent to the So Delicious variety.

Method Two

1 ripe banana, chopped into coins
2 cups sweetened vanilla almond milk
1/4-1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon

optional - dash of turmeric, for colour

Place chopped bananas on parchment paper and set in the freezer until frozen. Pop in a blender with remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Serve ice cold.
