One of my favourite Christmas traditions is eggnog. Just imagine a creamy, thick perfectly spiced eggnog, doesn’t it sound delicious? This creamy, egg-free eggnog is a balance of non-dairy milk, coconut milk, vanilla and spices. It has that thick consistency we all love! 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 want. Now, all you need to add is a sprinkle of freshly grated nutmeg and your favourite liquor. For me, this vegan, gluten-free eggnog is more like a dessert, it brings back happy memories from my childhood at Christmas time. Happy holidays and thank you for supporting my blog and all the great feedback on my recipes, tips and ideas.
