A very cool comedian asked the audience for a show of hands, who was in their twenties. And then she said,”Yer all soft this generation. I could take an entire row of ya out just by feeding you eggs or sumthin’.”
I’ve got a few people in my household with allergies but 100% of us love egg nog at Christmas time. The math just won’t add up tho.
Christmas Eve is our busiest day production wise. Amongst all the cooking and baking today I was getting through with my mum, I was handed a recipe for dairy free egg nog by my dad. But it contained egg yolks, a no go for another person in my family. And you needed to do this thing with a saucepan and heat things up and oh gosh, I just wanted to throw things in a bottle, shake it a little and shove it in the fridge.
Which is kind of what I ended up doing and it was a success!!! You’ll want a blender but if you don’t have one just shake the mixture in a bottle to make it frothy.
I shall name it NOG.
Ready for it?
Here we go, VEGAN EGG NOG or NOG
Makes 1 litre ish
1 litre of dairy free milk, I used half almond milk and half coconut milk. UNSWEETENED
Splash of maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract, or 2 tsp if you like vanilla, I used 2 hehe
Put all the above in a blender (or the bottle) and blitz until frothy. With the cinnamon and nutmeg just shake in as much as you like, you might like it more nutmeggy than cinnamoney or vice versa.
Pour into a container and store in fridge to chill.
When you want to serve, give it a shake (the spices tend to settle at the base) and you can add a dash more nutmeg, cinnamon or both on top.
Of course you can make it alcoholic if you wish, I’d suggest something like Frangelico maybe? (But I don’t think you really need it.)
Merry Christmas! x
Here’s me at four in the morning wielding saucepans with mascara under my eyes which is weird, I haven’t worn mascara for three days and I wash my face all the time.
