Here is a recipe for Virgin Vegan Eggnog.  The recipe will need to be modified for the Nutribullet because it is written for many servings and for a regular blender.  Any other Christmas Blast recipes out there?

Ingredients:

4 cups raw almonds

Filtered water for soaking nuts

8 cups filtered water

1/3 cup pure maple syrup

¼ cup raw almond butter

1-1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

½ tsp. ground nutmeg (I prefer buying the whole nuts, then milling them fresh!)

1/8 tsp ground cloves

2 tsp. rum extract (or to taste)**

Preparation:

  1. Soak almonds overnight in water
  2. Rinse and drain soaked almonds
  3. Place soaked almonds and 6 cups of filtered water in blender or food processor (may need to do in 2 batches).  Blast for about 1 minute.
  4. Strain milk through a fine mesh strainer or cheese cloth; discard solids.*  (This is one step I think you can disregard, as the recipe is written for a blender).
  5. Place almond milk back into blender; add almond butter, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.
  6. Blend again for 30 seconds; pour into large pitcher with cover.
  7. Cover and refrigerate until cold.

Tips:

  1. *Solids can be dried out in the oven at a low temperature (225 °F) and used as almond flour in baking recipes.
  2. **You can hold off on the rum extract if you think the kids won’t like it, and then add a few drops to your individual glass of eggnog.
  3. Vegan eggnog can be stored in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.
Happy Holidays! This sounds like a knock out. Love that it's great for the kiddos, too! :) Don't know what this is..guess it serves as a great virgin Sangria substitute! Boil 3 cups of pure cranberry juice (cranberries + water in the NB, then strain!) 1 cup fresh-squeezed orange juice, 1 cup water, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1 cinnamon stick, and stevia to taste altogether for about 10-15 minutes and serve!
Happy Holidays Laura! Wow that sounds good too, especially the orange juice and cranberry!
Awesome recipe! Perfect for the holidays!
