Peppermint-y goodness, minus the 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!
