Let’s kick off with this delightful beverage. Have it hot (if you’re in Denmark), or cold (if you’re in NZ); in a hand-me-down mug, or a posh fluted glass; by a roaring fire, or on a sandy beach. Whichever way you have it – this egg-free egg nog is the business.

  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch black salt (or regular salt)

Recipe Notes

  • To sweeten i’ve used whole dates, but you can also use 1 tsp liquid sweetener (brown rice syrup, coconut nectar, maple or yacon syrup), 1 tsp coconut sugar, or a pinch of stevia.
  • If you have no black salt, use regular (although the black salt gives the drink a eggy sulphurous flavour).
  • You can add ½ tsp maca powder as well for a hormone balancing boost, or 2 tsp cacao for a chocolatey version.
