It’s a completely profound type of magic when you see your old favorites morphing into wonderfully vegan, raw versions of themselves. Egg nog is a holiday favorite, and just because your raw or vegan (or simply eating healthy) does NOT mean you shouldn’t be able to enjoy it. Everyone will rejoice in this animal-free version this holiday season!
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 cup pitted dates
- 3/4 cup pecans
- 2-3 cups water
- 4-5 shots of rum (1 shot is about 44 ml) (completely optional)
- 1 can coconut milk** (optional but recommended)
- Blend everything together in your high-speed blender. Add the rum one shot at time to make sure you don’t make it too strong and render all your guests unconscious by the end of the evening.
**If you don’t use the coconut milk, just make up for it by adding 1/4 cup more of pecans and 1 cup more of water. But the coconut milk makes it really creamy and delicious… just saying. Change it as you desire… then CHUG!
