- 1/4 cup raw, unsalted cashews (you could probably use blanched almonds if you are allergic to cashews.
- 4 cups vanilla soymilk (or other milk-like beverage, coconut would probably be awesome)
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp rum flavoring
- 1/4-1/2 cup dark brown sugar
Put cashews into a blender. Add nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla extract, rum flavoring, dark brown sugar, and salt. Then pour enough vanilla soymilk to allow it to blend (at least a cup) and blend it until the cashews are completely dissolved into the drink. Decant it, pour in the rest of the quart and stir. Chill and serve topped with grated nutmeg. Or use as a coffee creamer. This was a hit with everyone at our family winter holiday gathering last year, from the vegan 5 year old to the omnivorous eggnog connoisseurs. It does mix well with alcohol, I like brandy or amaretto, but rum would work too.
