For many egg nog is a holiday tradition. Now vegans can enjoy the taste of a vegan nog that will become your own holiday tradition.
1 cup raw cashews, soaked for at least 4 hours (overnight, preferably)
2 cups filtered water
1 13.5 oz can of full fat coconut milk
1/2 cup of almond milk
6 large dates, pitted and soaked for an hour
1/2 a medium sized banana
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
A pinch of nutmeg
A pinch of ground cloves
A pinch of sea salt
1. Blend the drained cashews on high speed with 2 cups of water for at least 2 minutes, or until you have a smooth cashew milk.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend again on high speed for about 2 minutes, or until smooth.
3. At this point, your “egg” nog will be hot, so cool it down in the fridge, and then serve it will a sprinkling of cinnamon or a splash of rum, if you dare!
Enjoy and happy holidays to you and yours!
