Ok, friends, the holidays are here, and I’ve got you covered with an incredible DIY Creamy Vegan Eggnog. This festive drink is thick, creamy, and packed with all the spices you’d traditionally find in regular eggnog – nutmeg, cinnamon, and in my version – a touch of cardamon too. And, if you want to give it a little boozy twist, I highly recommend adding bourbon.
I grew up on store-bought egg nog, and I actually love it. Egg nog is one of those drinks that scream Christmas – it’s traditionally made with eggs, milk, heavy cream, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and bourbon (or rum). And make no mistake, it’s a heavy, creamy, and decadent drink. This year I decided to create a lightened up version; one that still screams Christmas, but won’t leave your belly feeling like you just drank a gallon of cream.
If you are new to eggnog, it reminds me of a thick, custardy ice cream that’s super smooth and packed with spices. And in versions that contain alcohol, now you’ve got a boozy custard ice cream packed with spices 😉 Doesn’t that sound amazing? I think so!
To make your own vegan eggnog, all you need is the following ingredients and a high-speed blender.
To make this DIY Creamy Vegan Eggnog, it couldn’t be easier! All you have to do is add all of the ingredients to a high speed blender and blend away! In under 2 minutes, you will have the perfect dairy-free version, that you can then transfer to a container and save in the refrigerator for up to one week.
I love drinking eggnog chilled, with no ice. However you can definitely serve it over ice or warm, or even in your morning latte. And, since this is basically spiced almond milk, sometimes I add it to my smoothies! You can even pour it into an ice cube tray and make eggnog ice cubes. And my favorite way to enjoy eggnog is spiked with bourbon or rum. As you can see, so many fun possibilities, so little time!
