Perfect for the holidays!
This Nog is a rich and frothy blend of nuts that will be an absolute favorite with family and friends. The folks at Hippocrates Health Institute were kind enough to share and I am thrilled to whip this up for the holidays! This is vegan ‘egg nog’ made with nut milks. If you don’t yet make your own nut milks, no stress, just do a search for my nut milk post. I have included links below to amazon for quick and easy shopping.
2 C. Almonds
1 C. Pine Nuts
3 Medjool Dates
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1 Tbsp Vanilla
Nut Milk Sack (The link takes you to the ones I use, into my 2nd year of use, they work great and wash up easy peasy too!)
Blender This is Glass….Stainless, rather than plastics all around! Glass is always going to be safer than your plastic.
First you will need to make two separate batches of nut milk. (see my blog on how to make almond milk, which is pretty much exactly how you make all nut milks, with a minimum 4 hour soak, add water, blend, then strain. Very easy and way better than store bought, so fresh and full of vitamins and minerals!)
Combine 2 cups of almonds with 2 cups of water, blend and strain through a nut bag.
Next combine 1 cup of pine nuts with 1 cup water, blend and strain through a nut bag.
Combine both nut milks in a blender, add 3 Medjool Dates, 1/2 tsp Cinnamon, 1/2 tsp Nutmeg, and 1 Tbsp Vanilla.
Blend and serve!
Note: This is a thicker and richer recipe than our regular nut milk, you can use stevia in place of the dates if you want a sugar free recipe.
