Vegan Peppermint Nog Recipe

Peppermint-y goodness, minus the raw eggs.

Peppermint nog

Peppermint drink – without raw eggs

Eggnog is one of those drinks that I take a token sip once a year. I mean, drinking raw eggs is just gross to me. Who is with me on this??? I’ve never liked the stuff.

I am happy to report that I have found a vegan nog that is festive and yummy and ¬†obviously egg-less. You can also buy vegan nogs (here’s a review of dairy free nogs)¬†these days – Silk makes a pretty decent one if you want to save time and hassle.

This drink has a creamy texture and just a hint of peppermint, making it the perfect enlightened holiday nog.

You soak cashews in boiling water, blend them with a milk of choice and add in crushed peppermint candies as desired. Sweet peppermint flavor replaces the egg-y nutmeg taste.

A toast to you all this Christmas Season!
