Nothing says Christmas like eggnog! Just one sip is enough to put us in the holiday spirit. We鈥檝e already shown you how to whip up the ultimate holiday version of eggnog (loaded with eggs, sugar and cream), so this year we wanted to put a twist on the classic for all of our dairy-free friends out there! Our vegan eggnog is made with fresh almond milk and sweetened with dates. It鈥檚 so good we promise you won鈥檛 miss the real thing! Read on for the recipe.
