There is nothing yummier than a glass of eggnog at the holidays (shout out: my dad makes exceptional eggnog!) but it can be a bit rich for everyday drinking… So, I am particularly grateful to Kris Carr for sharing this delicious smoothie recipe for a vegan eggnog that you can do equally for breakfast or an after dinner treat. Save the real deal for Christmas/New Year’s only!


For the Love of Nog

3 cups almond milk (or nondairy milk of choice)

1 banana

1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg (secret: nutmeg is a tummy soother so this is awesome for this time of too-much-rich-food)

1/2 Tbsp cinnamon

1 tsp almond extract

2 dates, pitted

Blend in a high-speed blender until frothy and smooth. Cheers!
