Eggnog-Dairy Free and Egg Free

 Eggnog – Dairy Free and Egg Free

Eggnog, either you love it or you hate it. It not only includes cream and milk, but also gets its frothiness from whipped egg whites, and additional richness from beaten egg yolks. To keep tensions low at your holiday party, skip the eggs (and the milk and the cream while you’re at it) and make this vegan eggnog, also known as eggless nog. With a mixture of creamy non-dairy milks like almond, cashew, and coconut, plus a seasoning blend of cinnamon, allspice, and cloves, you’ll nail the flavor of a classic eggnog without any of the dairy. Anyone putting up a fight about drinking something vegan? Just tell them to add another splash of bourbon to their cup.
