Celiac/Gluten Free

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free Egg Nog

SERVES 6 (MAKES 24 OUNCES)

 

Here's a delicious alternative to traditional egg nog. This allergy-friendly egg nog, made without dairy and eggs, is sweetened naturally without processed sugar. It's as rich and creamy as the real thing. Serve cold with a cinnamon stick, sprinkled with nutmeg or topped with dairy-free whipped topping.

Meat from one young coconut, fresh, or 1 cup frozen
    young coconut (drained if frozen in water)
½ cup raw almonds or 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    or 1 teaspoon gluten-free imitation almond
    extract, more to taste
3 medjool dates, pits removed
3 tablespoons agave syrup or liquid sweetener of choice
1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon ground cloves
3 cups water or canned coconut milk* or combination

1. Blend all ingredients in a food processor or VitaMix until smooth.

2. Pour mixture into a colander or sieve lined with clean cheesecloth and strain. If you like egg nog with a bit of texture (pureed bits of almonds, if tolerated, and dates), enjoy without straining.
