This Vegan Eggnog is rich, creamy & easy 5 minute holiday drink recipe no one will believe is vegan! Better than store bought! Nut free, Soy free and healthy too!
Christmas and New Year’s is approaching and it wouldn’t be complete without Eggnog! Am I right? and my vegan eggnog recipe kicks butt on the dairy version! If you love eggnog this is a must make recipe!
It's just the right thickness and not too sweet and easily spiked for a holiday treat! You’ll be blown away how good it is! Says me and everyone else who’s tried it!
What is vegan eggnog made of?
Vegan Eggnog is a plant based alternative to traditional eggnog which is made with dairy milk and eggs. My recipe is prepared with whole food ingredients: coconut milk, oat milk, dates for sweetness and to thicken, maple syrup, warm spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, vanilla and a pinch of salt- that’s it and it’s delicious with coconut whipped cream for kiddos or with a shot of booze- rum, brandy or bourbon for the grownups. Perfect holiday beverage for the whole family!
My husband loves his rum and eggnog so he’s an excellent judge! He was blown away by how good my homemade vegan eggnog tasted and was super pleased he could have more than one without feeling sick from so much heavy cream, eggs and sugar!
And if you’ve tried brands like silk, so delicious, or califia farms eggnog, this is so much tastier and budget friendly- no expensive raw cashews needed!
I guarantee you’ll adore this eggnog recipe. And it's ridiculous how quick and easy it is to whip up! It’s already mid December- let's do this!
How to make vegan eggnog:
- Add dates to a bowl. Cover with boiling water to soften.
- Add the coconut milk, oat milk, maple syrup, vanilla, spices and salt to your blender (I recommend good quality blender). Drain the dates and add them in. Blend until smooth. Chill in the fridge.
- Serve cold in a hiball glass with a couple of ice cubes, sprinkle of cinnamon, tiniest pinch of nutmeg if you like and for a spiked eggnog add in an ounce of rum, brandy or bourbon. A dollop of coconut whipped cream topping is lovely too. Enjoy with a Christmas cookie! For full recipe ingredients and instructions see recipe card below
