One of my favourite Christmas traditions is eggnog. Just imagine a creamy, thick, perfectly spiced vegan eggnog. Doesn’t it sound delicious?

this eggnog is vegan, this is why,

Thick creamy, egg-free eggnog balances almond milk, coconut milk, vanilla and spices to perfection. This vegan eggnog is insanely delicious, and you can’t tell it is made without eggs and dairy.

The best part is, you can adjust the sweetness. Since I don’t like anything too sweet, I used a little less maple syrup, but feel free to make your eggnog as sweet as you like.

to complete this vegan eggnog recipe you will need more nutmeg,

This is a must, a sprinkle of freshly grated nutmeg! And, if you like your favourite liquor. Just be sure to use gluten-free alcohol. Rum is generally gluten-free, but be sure to check the label.

For me, this vegan, gluten-free eggnog is more like a dessert, and it brings back happy memories from my childhood at Christmas time.
