Vegan Creamy Eggnog

Vegan Creamy Eggnog


Rich, creamy, and it's totally egg-free and non-dairy! This luscious vegan eggnog is super easy to whip-up and the perfect drink for holiday gatherings!

Eggnog also known as a milk punch or a holiday sludge when liquor is added, is a rich, chilled, creamy, sweetened beverage. It is traditionally made with milk, cream, sugar and whipped eggs which gives it a frothy texture, and its name. 

Let's make an egg-free, dairy-free vegan eggnog. 


Prep time: 4 hours + 10 minutes
Serves: 3 people



1 cup raw Cashew Whole, soaked in water 4-8 hours, drained and rinsed
1 cup water
1 small overripe banana or 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg, plus more for serving
Pinch salt
⅓ cup bourbon or rum (optional)
Dairy-free whipped cream, for serving (optional)





  1. Place the cashews, water, coconut milk, banana, maple syrup, nutmeg, and salt into a blender and blend until smooth*.
  1. Taste-test and make any adjustments as needed. Add the rum or whiskey if using, and pulse the machine again to combine.
  1. Optionally, top with vegan whipped coconut cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg.



*If your blender isn't high-powered, start by blending the cashews with ½ cup of water, until relatively smooth, then add the remaining ingredients and blend again.

*Most liquors are vegan but it doesn't hurt to check, we usually use Barnivore just to be sure

*Brandy, rum, whisky or bourbon are often added as an ingredient to make this beverage more fun. 

*This recipe is by Connoisseurus Veg with a little bit of twist.
