Vegan Eggnog Recipe

Vegan Eggnog: This Dairy-Free Version of Your Favorite Holiday Drink Is Hella Tasty

A version of this story by Jessie Snyder was originally published on her blog Faring Well.

Last year, I came up with this recipe in hopes of reclaiming eggnog as a holiday tradition I could once again be a part of — sans the guilt of a heavy, sugar-laden drink with half of an ingredients list I couldn't pronounce.

My hope is to reclaim the holiday season with a new sense of what it means to have joy this time of year — to have a healthy body and an intentional mind, celebrate all of the delicious flavors of the season using quality ingredients, and be intentional about the balance between decadence and nutrients. I hope to pay more attention to people than to-do lists, take away some stress from my life, rather than pile it on and try to just "get through it."

If we are to be honest, the people we love and want to create positive, meaningful memories with do not benefit from our being stressed out, unhealthy, burdened, etc. So far I haven't found an item on my list that if not completed would mean the end of the world, except for if the people around me did not feel loved.
