Wow, I can’t believe its only 2 weeks left till Christmas! December always flies by so fast. I recently went to a naturopath and got some food testing done…. It seems I am intolerant to a lot of foods, one of them being dairy. I have loved eggnog since I was a kid and since I have found that the store bought dairy free ones just haven’t seemed to taste anything like real eggnog, I decided it was time to make my own.
- 1 cup cashews (soaked in water over night)
- 1 tbs maple syrup
- ½ cup toasted coconut
- 1 can light coconut milk
- ½ pitted dates (soak in water for 30 min prior)
- 2 tsp vanilla
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp ground cloves
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- In a blender puree all the ingredients together util smooth, if the consistency is too thick, add some of the water you used to soak the dates.
- Serve over ice to chill and add Spiced Rum if desired!
I hope you like this dairy free eggnog recipe, it sure is tasty! What is your favourite holiday recipe?
