VEGAN "NO EGG" NOG

VEGAN "NO EGG" NOG

I came up with this recipe because all the recipes for vegan “no egg” nog I could find were ridiculously high in calories, fat and sugar. This lightened-up version has all the rich creaminess and sweet spice with only 1 gram of net carbs and only 85 calories per cup (compared to 220 calories for most!). My girls chugged their nog in no time, but I didn’t have to worry because there’s almost no sugar and no raw eggs in it. Adults, feel free to spike yours with rum for the ultimate nog! 😉

Did you know? Most egg nog recipes call for raw egg, which poses a risk for salmonella! However, store-bought egg nog is pasteurized, killing potentially harmful microorganisms (such as salmonella).

I started with unsweetened vanilla almond milk (any non-dairy milk will do), and added one half cup of KetoseSweet+, which is a natural sweetener made with allulose, monk fruit and stevia. It tastes like sugar, but has only 5% of the calories! You can follow KetoseSweet+ on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter to keep up with their latest products! I am submitting this recipe as part of their Steviva Holiday Recipe Challenge (wish me luck).

If you don’t have any KetoseSweet+, you can sub an equal measure (half a cup) of baking stevia, erythritol, or regular sugar. You can also use half as much (one quarter cup) Pyure organic stevia blend or Truvia spoonable sweetener. Add more if you like it sweeter!

Next, I added just a little full fat coconut milk to up the creamy factor. If you’re not a fan of coconut (the flavor is slight), you could add one half cup of soaked cashews to the nog and blend until creamy! Doing so will add about 40 calories per serving.

Even with the vanilla almond milk, I felt it need more vanilla so I added a tablespoon of pure vanilla extract. If you’re not adding alcoholic rum, I’d also add one and a half a teaspoons of rum extract. It adds so much richness and flavor!

For the spices, I added one and a half teaspoon of ground nutmeg and three quarter teaspoon of ground cinnamon. The dominant flavors in egg nog should be nutmeg and vanilla, not cloves or cardamom which is more like chai.

Here’s the printable recipe! I hope you’ll rate and comment below if you try it 😉
