Just like Mam Claus would make. Only BETTER! Make it hot (if you're in Denmark), 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 do it - this egg-free nog is the BUSINESS (and if you splash it with rum, I won’t tell)

Kia ora!

Or should I say – ‘I wish the essence of life on you’.

I thought a dash of our local Māori language might be an adept way of starting our exchange today. Given Christmas is on its way, and is – at its core – a celebration of life.

Are you excited? I AM!

Life, love, food. That’s what I imagine Christmas to be all about.I’m in the process of putting together a master Xmas menu for you, which I’ll share next week. All my tried and tested favourites, that I know will be cherished (and demolished) on your family table.

Til then – a brand new beverage addition – which is so tasty, it sure doesn’t need to wait til the big day!

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.

And… it’s oh so easy! In fact, here are 5 reasons you should try this Christmas Eggnog THIS VERY WEEKEND. Think…

  • Deliciously dairy-free (with no egg either);
  • Very low in sugars (and only from whole food sources);
  • Done in 2 mins (in the blender… into your mouth);
  • Every so slightly eggy, thanks to a magic ingredient (any guesses?); and 
  • Easily spiked with a dash of rum, if you’re that way inclined.

Servings 1
Prep Time 5 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 c plant-based milk (soy, oat, nut, coconut)
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 medjool date pitted
  • 1/4 nutmeg
  • 1/4 cinnamon
  • 1/4 vanilla extract
  • pinch of black volcanic salt

Instructions

  • Blend all ingredients in a blender until super smooth.
  • To serve hot: heat on the stove until warm
    To serve cold: pour over ice (or add a few ice cubes to the blender)
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon & nutmeg. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • To sweeten I’ve used a Medjool date but you can swap 2-3 regular dates or 1tsp liquid sweetener (brown rice malt or coconut nectar or yacon syrup) or 1tsp of coconut sugar, or a pinch of stevia.
  • If you have no volcanic salt, use regular (although the volcanic salt gives the drink a eggy flavour)
  • You can add ½ tsp maca powder, also for a hormone balancing boost
  • You can make a chocolatey version with 2tsp cacao too!
  • Freeze to make ice blocks for the kids!
  • Traditionally a eggnog is milk, egg, sugar & nutmeg! So I’ve subbed the egg for cinnamon, vanilla and pinch of volcanic salt`
