Jackie's Forget Me Nots

No vase can overflow if you never fill it up.

Originally posted on Jackie’s Bookbytes 

I love Eggnog! When I pour myself a cup,  it’s an immediate pleasure. The rich, thick, creamy substance made with cloves and nutmeg puts me in a trance until the last drop, and I close my eyes in ecstasy. I am not vegan but this replacement raw healthy version is something to consider.

Holiday Nog

1 cup almonds, soaked for 3 hours
¼ cup cashews, soaked for 3 hours
2½ cups filtered water
3 frozen bananas, cut into chunks
8 dates, soaked and pits removed
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon vanilla flavor
? teaspoon Himalayan salt


1. Blend the nuts and water, and strain out nut pulp using a nut milk bag.
2. Add the remaining ingredients to the nut milk and blend until creamy smooth.

Sprinkle a dash of nutmeg on top, and enjoy!

Happy Holidays!

    I didn’t try egg nog until well into my adulthood. Somehow something called nog seemed less than appealing to me! But yum! Good stuff!

    I’ve never made my own eggnog before. Might be worth a shot!
