I combined almond milk and coconut milk and added some coconut oil for richness. The spices scream "the holidays are here!" and the tiny bit of turmeric adds a bit of color to resemble the real thing. I used maple syrup to sweeten to stay away from sugar, but honey, organic sugar or a healthy sugar substitute can also be used. And, to me, it wouldn't be eggnog without the rum...but this is totally your call. Enjoy!
Spiced "Eggnog" (Egg & Dairy Free)
1 1/2 cups almond milk
1 13.5 oz can coconut milk (full fat not low fat)
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 stick cinnamon
1 whole nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1-2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, plus more for dusting
rum to taste
Add almond milk, coconut milk, coconut oil, cinnamon stick, whole nutmeg, sea salt and turmeric to saucepan, Heat until small bubbles begin to form...do not let boil. When hot, whisk in vanilla, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg and maple syrup to taste. Remove nutmeg and cinnamon stick.
Pour into mugs and add the amount of rum you want...usually 1-2 tablespoons. Dust top with grated nutmeg and serve.
