Raw Vegan Eggless Nog
Difficulty 5 minutes Serves 5 cups
This delicious raw vegan nog can be enjoyed as is or with a splash of fresh OJ! It makes a great breakfast drink, snack or even post-meal dessert. The secret ingredient? Earl grey tea!
Ingredients 2 cups soaked Cashews (start with 1.5 cups pre-soaked as they expand)
3/4 c Coconut Crystals
1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tsp ground Cinnamon
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 tsp ground Allspice
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 c Earl Grey Tea Water
1 c *Water
*3 c Water (Add this additional water in after above ingredients have blended. See note below about water portion)
Directions 1) Place ingredients in blender and blend until smooth (blend on high for 20-30 seconds) Pay special attention to the *water portion of this step. Once blended add in your additional 3 c of water and blend for another 30 seconds or so.
1) Over a large deep bowl position your Fine Mesh Strainer - in small batches slowly pour your Nog through the Strainer, stirring the nog as it passes through the strainer (this helps to move along the process)
Depending on how well you've blended your Nog you may need to stop in between straining each batch to rinse out your Strainer -- and continue!
It's as simple as that!
