“Vegan Eggnog?” I hear you ask.
Yes, I know eggnog is usually made with milk, cream, sugar, eggs. But this version here is really healthy and because it’s vegan, gluten-free and refined sugar free, it also suits a wide range of dietary requirements!
I came up with this recipe because I love eggnog but can never be bothered to make it properly as there are so many steps involved.
So, I recreated one without eggs which made it so much quicker and easier – all you have to do for this version here is heat up your milk of choice and mix in some spices. You can even make it in a microwave if you want!
My secret for making this Vegan Eggnog so delicious is this unsweetened cashew milk, which I’ve absolutely fallen in love with! It’s become my go-to milk for making hot drinks because it becomes deliciously rich, creamy and slightly frothy when it’s heated up.
I like to sweeten this Vegan Eggnog with a little maple syrup or date syrup, both of which add a deliciously cosy, slightly festive taste. But feel free to use sugar or any other sweetener you like, to taste.

This Vegan Eggnog is ready in just 5 minutes, super delicious and refined sugar free.
- 1 cup any kind of milk (I recommend unsweetened cashew milk)
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon mixed spice (or a mixture of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg)
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup or date syrup, to taste
Add all ingredients to a saucepan on medium heat and mix well (if you want, you can use a whisk to ensure it’s all mixed properly)
Turn off the heat once it’s thickened up a little and started to bubble, and pour into a mug
You can also add some instant coffee/freshly filtered coffee/chicory powder to make it into an eggnog latte, or add rum/brandy/Bourbon to add an alcoholic kick!
