Vegan Eggnog (It’s Made With Hazelnuts!)


Eggnog, a classic holiday drink. Either loved or reviled. If you followed me on Miss Epicure, this recipe might look a little bit familiar. However, it’s so good I had to repost it. Enjoy this recipe for Vegan Eggnog!

This eggnog is a vegan, cleaned up version of the traditional with heavy cream (and little too much rum). Sugar was replaced with maple syrup and medjool dates. I achieved the creamy consistency by blending hazelnuts and water, and running the milk mixture through a cheesecloth.

This recipe makes a great basic drink, so you can spice it up any way your like. I added a splash of bourbon. If that’s not your style, you can use this as a creamer for coffee. Or, if you are feeling adventerous, you can bake or cook with it. (Here are some good recipes.)
