Vegan Holiday Eggnog


  1. In a high-speed blender, combine dairy-free milk, along with coconut milk, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract, and Medjool dates.
  2. Blend on high until you achieve a creamy and smooth texture, which usually takes about 1-2 min. Taste it and tweak the flavors if necessary, adding more spices for that cozy warmth.
  3. When it’s time to serve, you can enjoy your “eggnog” cold over ice or heat it over medium heat until it’s warm and comforting.
  4. Serve it as it is or indulge with a dollop of coconut whipped cream and a sprinkle of extra cinnamon.
