Raw Food Recipe: Holiday Eggless Nogg

Happy Healthy Holidays!

Today I’m going to share a holiday raw food recipe Egg Nogg Sans Egg from RitaMarie’s book Healthy Holiday Traditions. In the video below, I’m inside the Clement Lodge in Tahoe making this recipe for the first time.

The drink turned out really good! I don’t mind chunks of almond in my almond milk, so the texture was fine for me – but you may want to run the blender longer or strain the tasty holiday treat with cheesecloth or a nut milk bag.

We have plenty of unhealthy options around this time of year, so for a refreshing treat try the eggless nogg recipe and let me know your thoughts!  It’s a holiday recipe you can enjoy without the side helping of guilt.

1c raw almonds (any nut will be okay, macadamia would be pricey but good)
2c water
¼c  agave nectar (or date paste)
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cardamon

pinch of clove (optional)

Toss everything in your VITAMIX or other high speed blender and blend until smooth.

Happy Holidays,

My son is an egg-nog fanatic, so I really love finding great ideas for making it vegan. Thanks. I make my almond milk by soaking the almonds overnight. In the morning, I blanch them quickly in boiling water, rinse, and pop the skins right off. Then I blend them in the high powered blender and add my flavoring, vanilla and agave or stevia. I learned this trick through Ayurveda. For some reason they don’t use the peels of their almonds. Makes homemade almond milk without the grit, anyway. No need to strain.

Hi Sue,
This looks great! I really want eggnog for new years eve, and love having lots of options to try. This is my go-to soy-free raw vegan recipe for nog:
Raw Almond Holiday Nog
Yield: 4 servings
• 2 cups Almond Milk
• 1/3 cup raw macadamia nuts
• 2 tablespoons date paste (see note)
• 1 teaspoon maple syrup or dark agave nectar
• 1 teaspoon flaxseed oil
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg, plus additional for garnish
• 1 frozen banana, thawed 5 minutes and broken in two or three pieces

Place 1 cup of the Almond Milk, the macadamia nuts, and the date paste in a Vita-Mix or high speed blender and process until smooth. Add the maple syrup, flax oil, vanilla extract, and nutmeg and blend. Add the remaining Almond Milk and the banana and blend again until smooth. Serve immediately, sprinkled with additional nutmeg.

Note: To make date paste, place 1/3 cup water and 1 cup soaked pitted dates in a food processor and process until smooth. Yield: 1 cup. Stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator, date paste will keep for 2 weeks.
