This recipe tastes so nostalgic but doesn’t contain any refined sugar or processed products! All that you need is a blender to make your own rich, silky, smooth nog with cashews, coconut milk, dates and a touch of vanilla extract. Serve it spiked if desired for a fun holiday cocktail!

Serves 4


  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 6 medjool dates (pitted)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice


  1. Soak cashews for at least 30 minutes, overnight if possible.
  2. Add all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend until smooth. 
  3. Serve chilled over ice, or heat gently in a saucepan for a warm eggnog. It will thicken upon heating, and you may want to re-blend to remove any lumps. Garnish with cinnamon stick and star anise.
  4. Stored in a sealed container, eggnog will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.
