The Best Vegan Eggnog
- 3/4-1 cup raw cashews, soaked for 30 minutes
- 2 cups fresh water
- 1 15 oz. can of full-fat coconut milk
- 6 medjool dates, pitted
- 1 tsp. Kahlua or vanilla extract
- 3 Tbsp. spiced rum (optional)
- 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
- 1 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp. xanthan gum (optional)
Place the cashews in medium bowl. Cover completely with boiling water and allow to soak for at least 30 minutes. When the time is up, drain and rinse the cashews then place in a high-speed blender.
Add in the fresh water and blend with the cashews on high for about 2 minutes or until very well blended and smooth.
Now, add in the remaining ingredients and blend on high again for another two minutes or until the dates are completely blended.
Stir before serving if being chilled. Garnish with additional freshly grated nutmeg.
6 egg yolks
1 c. sugar
1 c. orange liqueur
1/2 c. dark rum
1/2 c. brandy
4 c. whole milk
4 c. heavy cream
With a hot pad in hand, in a double boiler over simmering water, whisk the egg yolks until they are well beaten.
Add the sugar slowly and continue to whisk until the mixture is pale yellow and quite voluminous.
With a towel in hand to dry the bottom of the bowl, remove it from the water.
Whisk in the orange liqueur, rum, brandy, and milk.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, or in a large bowl using a beater, whip the cream until it is doubled in volume.
Fold the cream into the egg and milk mixture.
Divide the eggnog into two pitchers.
Cover it tightly with cellophane and refrigerate overnight.
