Vegan Eggnog

I can’t count the number of times I’ve been asked for a vegan eggnog recipe.  This gluten free, dairy free (egg free) eggnog is not too challenging to make and full of filling rich yumminess.

Unlike other eggnogs, it’s not too sweet and has a nice delicate nutmeg flavor.  If you want to decrease the sweetness further, go with only 1 tablespoon of agave in the recipe below, or eliminate it entirely.  You’ll still have the natural sweetness of the almonds and the rich round sweetness of yacón.

As you all know, I love almonds.  I wrote an entire gluten free cookbook on them called The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook.  So it was a lot of fun when I found this very positive article on almonds over at Men’s Health Magazine.  Men’s Health is on the almond bandwagon!
