A twist on a traditional drink to make a rich and creamy Vegan Eggnog which is made with cashews and almond milk.


  • 140g (1 cup) raw cashews
  • 750ml (3 cups) water
  • 750ml (3 cups) almond milk
  • 70g (1/3 cup) caster sugar
  • 5ml (1 tsp) vanilla paste
  • 1g (½ tsp) cinnamon
  • 1g (½ tsp) nutmeg
  • 0.5g (¼ tsp) ground cloves
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) bourbon
  • 15ml (1 tbsp) rum


  1. Pour freshly boiled water over the raw cashews in a bowl.
  2. Allow them to soak for roughly 5-10 minutes and then drain.
  3. Pour them to your blender and add the almond milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and ground cloves.
  4. Blend until silky smooth then transfer to your refrigerator for a couple of hours.
  5. Remove from the fridge and add the bourbon and the rum. 
  6. Serve in the glass of your choice and sprinkle a little cinnamon or nutmeg over the top for decoration. Enjoy!


  • You can substitute the cashews for other nuts, such as almonds. 
  • Feel free to experiment with alternative nut milks if you can’t find almond milk. 
  • You can serve this eggnog without alcohol or substitute it for alcohol of your choice.
  • If you have a nut allergy, then try silken tofu or coconut milk.
