Back in the blogging saddle again soon

Hello there. It has been a wild and crazy month. We have been so busy since the beginning of the year we have hardly had time to catch our breath let alone blog.

We even put Patsy our vegan bloggist on assignment so that’s why you haven’t heard anything from her. But she’s been saving up some goodies for you.

We have so much to share but we will not bombard you with it all at once. Just a bit at a time.

Hope you have had a good start to the year. Thank you for staying with us.

P.S. We aren’t on Instagram. Do you want us on Instagram? We’ll jump on it if you do. Let us know in comments or email us at horsefund@gmail.com.

Wishing you the very best for 2019

Vegan eggnog

One of my all-time favourite drinks for the holiday season is eggnog. And it is something I make often and drink a lot at Christmastime and into the New Year.

This is a very nice recipe. It’s by Tasty Yummies.

I like to make my own cashew milk. But you can use Silk.

Vegan Eggnog Recipe

Ingredients

2 cups homemade cashew milk or other non-dairy milk of your choice
½ cup full fat coconut milk
⅓ cup raw cashews, soaked overnight or for at least 30 minutes (optional)*
4-6 Medjool dates
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
pinch of ground cinnamon
pinch of ground cloves
pinch of sea salt

Instructions

Add all of the ingredients to your high speed blender and process until smooth and creamy. Serve immediately, as is or add spiced rum, bourbon, brandy or whiskey, for a spirited version. Add a pinch of freshly ground nutmeg on top.

By Tasty Yummies. Tasty Yummies has a great How To section too!


Cashew Milk

To make your own cashew milk:

Place raw cashews in a bowl and cover with cold water. Allow to soak for at least one hour up to overnight, then drain and rinse. Combine soaked cashews and filtered water in a blender. For a whole milk texture, use 3 cups of water to 3/4 cup cashews. This works for me very nicely.

Cheers!
