Plant-based Eggnog

Eggnog is a popular drink during the holidays. Traditional eggnog is made of milk or cream, sugar, raw eggs, an alcoholic spirit and spices. It makes you wonder: How did humans first think downing a spiced and spiked egg-yolk-milk mixture was a good idea? Anyway, as you might expect, we’ll make our own plant-based version of eggnogis- virgin for the kids, strong for the parents :).

The first president of the United States, George Washington, was quite a fan of eggnog and devised his own recipe that included rye whiskey, rum and sherry. It was reputed to be a stiff drink that only the most courageous were willing to try.

For my version of eggnog you don’t have to be courageous at all 🙂 Just enjoy it!
