I have a confession to make. I love eggnog… In my coffee. I’m normally a black, no sugar kinda gal but now that it’s cold and December and I’m feeling ever so slightly less grinchy I’ve started spiking my morning coffee with eggnog. Oh the shame!

I was looking at the ingredient lists for commercial eggnog and it’s really not all that appealing. I think that, if I ever finish this carton, I may make a batch of my own. I’m actually a little bit grossed out by the eggs in the nog. I’m sure they add some protein, iron, and vitamin D but I thought I’d see if I could find a vegan recipe just to be completely blasphemous. I’ve no idea if these taste any good (or anything like eggnog) but I found a couple that look pretty yummy and much healthier than traditional eggnog:

Vegan Eggnog, Vegan Eggnog 2 – bonus, they’re made in the blender so no cooking!
