Eggless nog nag
If we learn anything this holiday season, it’s that hipsters aren’t the only ones who like wearing ironic clothing—we see you, ugly Christmas sweater wearers at the office holiday party—and that vegan eggnog is not just a pipe dream, but easy to find and make. Soy nog by Silk and almond milk nog by Califia Farms are widely available to purchase, but the homemade version will be fresher and healthier without thickeners or stabilizers. So try this: Blend 1 cup of soaked (for four hours or more) and drained cashews with 2 cups of filtered water until smooth. Add one can of organic coconut milk; five to six pitted Medjool dates; half a vanilla bean; 1/2 teaspoon sea salt; and 1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, and blend it, Rudolph. To spice it up even more, throw in a pinch of clove or cinnamon, and to spike it, choose a vegan-friendly rum from www.barnivore.com.
