I am happy to report that although finding a really good dairy free, egg free nog recipe is very challenging, this recipe shows it is possible!
I have tried several store bought dairy free egg nog drinks, but there were issues, so I stopped buying them. Either the taste was off or I did not want to consume the unhealthy ingredients that were necessary as preservatives.
Here is a fresh and easy dairy free egg nog recipe with no unhealthy additives that tastes really good. Try it with a splash of rum for some fun! Add a fun garnish like pomegranate seeds for holiday color. I have also added a sprinkle of ground nutmeg, but ground cinnamon would work as well.
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend for several minutes. I really like this coconut milk and maple syrup in this recipe. Don’t forget a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg on top! I have also placed a few pomegranates on top for some festive holiday color. (Affiliate Links)
With the weather in New England unseasonably warm, it’s hard to imagine that Christmas is only a few days away. However, the evenings are cool and a little egg nog at a gathering and the holiday spirit comes alive in no time.
What are your plans for the holidays?
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/8 cup coconut milk (I use canned full fat)
- 1 frozen banana (cut in chunks)
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon (I like Ceylon Cinnamon)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- cloves pinch (optional)
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional depending on your sweetness level)
- Splash of rum
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend for a few minutes until completely combined and a little foamy and frothy.
Garnish with sprinkled cinnamon or nutmeg. I have garnished with a few pomegranates for holiday color. Optional: add a splash of rum.
