A classic holiday beverage homemade that is completely vegan, gluten-free, paleo, and sugar-free! I call this Homemade Vegan Eggnog a Hempnog masterpiece, one that will be a standout drink recipe to introduce this holiday season! Even the non-eggnog drinkers will fall in love with this one!
The classic and traditional Christmas holiday beverage was just begging to be made "free-from" and enjoyable for all!
Let me start off by saying I've always loved eggnog for as long as I can remember. My grandmother always had some around the house when I was growing up, non-alcoholic of course! Now that I've started a healthy living journey I always look for ways to make my old school favs into a new vegan healthy dish.
This little drink recipe is 100% homemade, and super fast to make. How you may ask? Well, let me introduce you to one of my new favorite kitchen appliances. The vitamix is a one-of-a-kind appliance that will make it super easy for you to create your own alternative kinds of milk and butters right at home in a short amount of time! If you don't have one, google it!
This "hempnog", vegan eggnog, is a combination of fresh hemp milk, Japanese sweet potato (for extra creaminess and sweetness!), and some cozy spices and sweetener. It's the perfect level of creaminess and smoothness, with just the right amount of sweet, but also warming and cozy with those seasonal spices (hello, cinnamon and nutmeg)!
This recipe is made without gluten, soy, nuts, dairy, or eggs, making it absolutely vegan, gluten-free and paleo. If this isn't a Christmas miracle...I don't know what is!
