How about some vegan drink recipes? Oh, yes. These drinks are non-dairy therefore vegan, and delicious. Quick and easy too.
You probably have these spices already in your cupboard or on your shopping list. Let’s go! We have two yummy recipes: one cold, one hot.
• VEGAN EGGNOG •
2 cups non dairy milk
— (Silk Almond Milk, plain or vanilla.
Silk Cashew Milk is also delicious, especially as a basis for lattes.)
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup brandy (1/2 tsp brandy extract for non-alcoholic version)
2 1/2 teaspoons maple syrup
Blend all ingredients together in a pitcher. Serve your delicious vegan eggnog over ice and dress with a sprinkle of nutmeg and a cinnamon stick for the perfect festive touch.
If you want to make a killer ‘nog, use fresh ground nutmeg. You won’t believe the difference till you try it. Oh, yeah!
