Vegan Holiday Egg Nog

Just can't wait for the season of nog to officially begin? Wait no longer!

Okay, we know this recipe seems a little on the light side, but trust us: one sip of this splendid libation and you'll forget that the word "nog" was ever preceded by the word "egg." Want to know our extra-super-secret trick? This rich, creamy concoction is completely raw. That's right—everyone from your stodgy, meat-and-potatoes-eating Aunt Griselda to your astral-soul-vibrating cousin Sunbeam McMoonshine can swill to their heart's content and fill their glasses again and again. Serve this knock-out nog chilled, and make sure to have an extra batch or two on hand, just in case Aunt Griselda claims the punchbowl as her own personal mug.
Serves 4—6
What You Need:
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup dates, pitted
  • 1/2 vanilla bean, split and scraped, or 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon grated nutmeg

What You Do:
  • In a blender, place all ingredients. Blend until smooth and serve.
