Eggnog is one of my favorite Holiday drinks! I am so happy to share this recipe for Vegan Eggnog! This recipe is gluten free, dairy free and vegan which means there are NO eggs in this recipe. I cook with eggs but the thought of drinking raw eggs just makes me gag! Silk has a wonderful Vegan Eggnog available at the grocer but wouldn’t you like to make your own eggnog and not have to think about it sitting in grocers for months on end before being purchased??
This Vegan Eggnog is made from coconut milk, cashews and spices – how easy and healthy! Easy because this recipe is made in a blender making it nice and frothy and you are done! Healthy because it has cashews!
Cashews are one of the lowest-fiber nuts that are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They contain the vitamins E, K and B6. They pack minerals such as copper, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium, iron and selenium! Our body needs all these vitamins and minerals to function. One study even shows cashews reduce blood pressure and raise “good” cholesterol levels. So Cheers! And drink up this holiday season.
Photos below show easy it is to make this delicious holiday Eggnog! Recipe follows the photos. Enjoy!
