Spiced Eggnog (Egg and Dairy Free)

I love this version of eggnog. Can I still call it eggnog if there are no eggs in the recipe?  Traditional versions of this wonderful holiday drink are, of course, delicious, but they just don't sit well with me. Too rich, too much dairy.

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)
(serves 4)

1 1/2 cups almond milk
1 13.5 oz can coconut milk (full fat not low fat)
1 tablespoon coconut oil

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 not let boil. When hot, whisk in vanilla, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg and maple syrup to taste. Remove nutmeg and cinnamon stick.

    I have been in financial mess for the past months, I’m a single mum with kids to look after. My name is REBECCA MICHAELSON, and am from Ridley Park, Pennsylvania. A couple of weeks ago My friend visited me and along our discussion she told me about DR BENJAMIN OWEN FINANCE of that he can help me out of my financial situation, I never believed cause I have spend so much money on different loan lenders who did nothing other than running away with my money. She advised, I gave it a try because she and some of her colleagues were rescued too by this Godsent lender with loans to revive their dying businesses and paying off bills. so I mailed him and explain all about my financial situation and therefore took me through the loan process which was very brief and easy. After that my loan application worth $278,000.00USD was granted, all i did was to follow the processing and be cooperative and today I am a proud business owner sharing the testimony of God-sent Lender. You can as well reach him through the Company Email
