Holiday Nog [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Soy Free Vegan




  • 1/4 ripe pear, cored (no need to peel)
  • 1 cup (240 ml) unsweetened plain or vanilla rice, almond or soymilk*
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) lucuma powder (optional, but highly recommended)
  • 2 heaping Tbsp (35-40 ml) raw cashews
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) chia seeds**
  • 1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp (1 ml) nutmeg
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp (1 ml) rum flavoring (optional)
  • 8-12 drops plain or vanilla stevia liquid, to your taste up to one ounce (30 ml) bourbon or rum, if desired/permitted


  1. Place all ingredients in a high-powered blender** and blend until perfectly smooth.
  2. Refrigerate until ice cold, at least an hour (this will also help it to thicken up considerably).
  3. To serve, whisk once more and top with a sprinkling of cinnamon; serve immediately.

If you use soymilk, the recipe is, obviously, no longer soy-free.

If you don't have a high-powered blender, grind the seeds to a fine powder first, in a coffee grinder.
