Vegan Egg Nog

VeganEggNog330Do you love the flavors of the holiday season, but not the way you feel after indulging in heavy sugary treats loaded with dairy? If you’re guilty (like me! GASP!) of purchasing eggnog in a carton, you might be aware that they are still highly processed and loaded with sugar.(Yes, EVEN IF it’s the soymilk, almond milk or coconut milk kind.)

But you’re in luck! I created my own version that is so rich, creamy and comforting it’s hard to believe it’s healthy, too!
I hope you enjoy! Happy Holidays!

    It looks so delicious! I would like to try this awesome recipe soon. Thank You for sharing your own version 🙂

  2. Mmmmm. Sounds great, Abb. I recall reading that typical eggnog has like 800 calories or something. But if you can drink yours and still keep your amazing body then I guess I’ll try making it for my family’s Pittsburgh, Pa. new years extravaganza! thanks.
