Vegan Nog is easy to find these days with so many brands coming out with vegan options. If you want to make some from scratch, this is an amazing version for you. Add spices to preference, add liquor or not and make this holiday drink.

Honestly, I don’t think I ever actually liked eggnog in my pregan days. Those days feel so far away that I cannot remember why I didn’t like eggnog. But this vegan version has me hooked.

This Vegan Eggnog is all creamy and foamy with no eggs. Chickpea flour adds the egg like flavor and texture. Chickpea flour (or use regular flour) is cooked up into a thick custard, that is blended into non dairy milk and spices. I like this chilled when using almond milk since some almond milk brands dont do well with boiling. For a hot version use soy milk or other non dairy milk. Fold in some whipped aquafaba for more foamy texture.

Ingredients 
 

For the egg mix:

  • 1 tbsp chickpea flour or besan, or use all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp all purpose flour, or use 2 teaspoons more chickpea flour
  • 1 cup non dairy milk
  • 1 to 2 whole cloves, or 1/8 tsp ground
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, optional
  • 1 tbsp sweetener, sugar or maple syrup

For the nog:

  • 2 1/2 cups non dairy milk, such as almond, light coconut, soy or oat
  • 2 tbsp or more sugar or sweetener
  • 3 tbsp cashews or macadamia nuts, soaked for 15 mins in hot water (Use coconut cream to make nut-free)
  • 1/8 -1/4 tsp ground nutmeg (to preferred flavor), and more for sprinkling
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon , and more for sprinkling
  • 1-2 tablespoons rum or bourbon, or other liquor to preference

Instructions 

Eggy mix:

  • Blend the flours and milk in a blender until well combined. Transfer to a saucepan over medium heat. Add the clove, vanilla, a pinch of salt, sweetener and bring to a boil. Add a pinch of turmeric for color (optional).
  • The mixture will start to get lumpy after coming to a boil and become like custard. Whisk really well. Reduce heat to medium low. Continue to cook for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally to avoid burning. Carefully taste the mixture to check if the chickpea flour is cooked and does not taste raw *. Remove the clove and discard or use as mouth freshener after a meal. Cool the mixture slightly. ***

Nog:

  • In the same blender add the custard and the rest of the nog ingredients except liquor. Blend for 3 or 4 cycles of 30 seconds to foam up the mix. Taste and adjust sweet, spices and blend again. If the mixture is thick to your preference then add liquor and blend again and serve. If the mixture isn’t thick enough then transfer to a saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer over medium low heat to thicken, taken off heat, cool for a few mins and mix in the liquor.
  • Transfer to serving glasses or cups. Sprinkle nutmeg and cinnamon and chill. (Or heat until just about to boil and serve hot eggnog and serve)
  • You can also fold in 1/4 cup or more of aquafaba that has been whipped into soft peaks into the mixture. Fold in gently and chill or serve.

Notes

For Turmeric nog, add 1 tsp turmeric to the chickpea mixture and cook. 
For Chai nog, add 1/4 tsp cardamom.
 
* Important, this custard should be edible as is at this point. If it tastes off, bitter or raw, the chickpea flour hasnt cooked yet or it didnt dissolve well. Cook the mixture thoroughly. If you dont like the flavor profile even when cooked through, discard and use regular flour.
*** No Custard: omit the flours, use 1/2 cup cashews instead of 3 tbsp and blend everything (3 1/2 cups total non dairy milk) and the rest of the spices and ingredients. Then bring to a boil to thicken slightly. Taste and adjust. Serve hot or chill and serve.

    I can barely remember egg-based nog but compared to all the vegan store-bought versions I’ve tried, this is so much yummier! I used mostly oat milk with a little unsweetened vanilla almond milk, syrup for sweetener, and cashews. Delicious. Thank you.

      Glad you enjoyed it!

  2. Julie says:

    I made this eggnog today and loved it! It’s got a more complex taste and is less sugary sweet than store bought brands. If you like it sweeter it’s easy to add another tablespoon of maple syrup. I plan on making more this weekend!

    I can’t have nuts or coconut, is there anything else I could replace the nuts with? Thank you so much for always providing so many substitutions! It is a major help!

      Use oat milk and 1 tsp more flour for the custard
