Up until a couple of years ago, I hadn’t even tried eggnog. Frankly, it just never sounded or looked all that appealing. Who wants to drink something that contains raw eggs? I know store-bought eggnog is far from raw, but industrial egg nog means industrial eggs, and who wants their holiday libations to support factory farming?

I finally did try it a few times but wasn’t impressed. Once I converted to a vegan diet, the possibility of developing a liking for eggnog went completely out the window.

Surprisingly, as I was browsing a few foodie blogs for the upcoming holiday season, I came across a couple of eggnog recipes and thought of an idea. Why not create a vegan drink similar to eggnog, yet much better?

So, last evening I took a trip to the store to gather what I needed. I forgot nutmeg and had to go back, but that’s a story for another time. First thing this morning, I made breakfast for the kids, and then began to tackle my eggnog version.

Well, actually, “eggnog” is misleading, so we’ll call it “VegNog”. Sounds creative doesn’t it? I thought so too, until I looked it up and realized I was the 7 billionth person to “invent” this term. Oh well, I may not be original, but my VegNog still rocks!

It was really good. How good? It was so good that I made it a second time so I could write down my exact measurements and save it for future use.

VegNog: Vegan Egg Nog Recipe



  1. Not much mystery here. Place everything but the chocolate shavings into a blender, and blend at high speed until smooth. Be careful you don’t overblend and make the mixture as thin as water.
  2. Sprinkle your chocolate shavings over the top.

This is great on its own or spiked with a bit of rum or whiskey. Enjoy!
