Dairy-Free Eggnog (Vegan + Paleo)

This delectably creamy, perfectly spiced eggnog is a healthier upgrade to a Christmas classic. Completely vegan, paleo and naturally sweetened, it’s every bit as delicious as the original!



1 ½ cups soaked cashews

1 13 oz can full-fat coconut milk

3  cups filtered water

⅓ c +1 Tbs maple syrup 

1 1/2  tsp vanilla extract

1 ½ tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg + more to taste

¼ tsp cardamom

¼ tsp turmeric (optional for color)

pinch of salt



Using a high speed blender like a vitamix for this recipe will create the smoothest eggnog. However, if you find your blender doesn’t blend the cashews completely, you can strain the eggnog using a nut milk bag or cheesecloth over a strainer for the smoothest consistency.
