  • 4 cups non-dairy milk my favorite is soy
  • 1/3 cup raw cashew pieces
  • 2-3 tbsp maple syrup or agave or date syrup
  • 2-3 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Xanthan Gum (optional)
  • 1/8 tsp tumeric
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • 1 pinch salt


  • Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth!  
  • Enjoy immediately or chill for several hours before serving.  Can also be served warm!
  • Serve with a swirl of vegan whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon!


Pro tip:  If you don't have a high powered blender, you may want to soak cashews in HOT water for five minutes or so to soften, then drain and proceed.
For warm and frothy eggnog - be sure to use room temp non-dairy milk and drink it right away!
For cold eggnog - start with chilled non-dairy milk or refrigerate an hour or two before serving.
