Dairy-free? Allergic to eggs? Trying to avoid gluten or refined sugar, but still want to enjoy the holiday season? You’ve come to the right place! With this decadent vegan cashew eggnog, you can indulge your sweet tooth while still treating your body right!
This eggnog is made of whole foods like cashews and sweetened with banana and maple syrup. Not only is it loaded with potassium and magnesium, but this eggnog contains healthy fats, protein and cinnamon, which help to stabilize blood sugar.
And the best part? This deliciously creamy eggnog can be served hot or iced! Use a frozen banana and add ice cubes to thicken the eggnog and create a cold, creamy smoothie. Or, blend these ingredients and then simmer for 5 minutes in a small saucepan to heat. Be sure to add an extra dash of cinnamon and nutmeg on top before serving!
