Living (No)-Egg Nog

Last year I created this living no-egg nog for my family over the holidays. This year, I prepared it at our monthly Raw Food Potluck...and everyone loved it.  This year, once again, we're headed out to see the GrandPrincess, and, once again, I'm packing the Vitamix Baby and taking it on the road. Another great holiday treat is cranberry and egg-nog  kale chips. These are divine. As always, feel free to interchange ingredients if you don't have any of them. I'm sure it will come out equally decadent! Here's my version:


Living No-Egg Nog
1 cup almonds (soaked overnight and peeled)
1/2 cup macadamia or pilli nuts
4 cups water (may use half of this as coconut water)
6 Medjool Dates (pitted)
1 young Thai coconut, meat or 5 Tablespoons Irish moss paste 
1/4 cup white chia seeds (for color)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract (6 drops *Medicine Flower Vanilla extract)
2 drops Medicine Flower Caramel extract (optional)
2 drops  Medicine Flower Rum Extract ( or 1/2 tsp liquid rum extract... or 3 Tablespoons real rum, if you don't mind the punch)
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon 
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/16 teaspoon or to taste, ground cloves
5 - 6 Tablespoons maple syrup (grade B or your favorite sweetener)
1/4 teaspoon tumeric (for color)
1/8 teaspoon sea salt    
ice   

Directions
Blend almonds and macadamia nuts with water until creamy. Strain in nut milk bag or cheesecloth to remove pulp. (Save pulp for other recipes. )

Blend milk with remaining ingredients.

Option: make this a Green Eggnog by adding kale or greens.

Add several ice cubes and blend to chill.

Pour into a glass, sprinkle with cinnamon and grated nutmeg, and serve.

**Mention Rawfully Tempting in the Shipping Comments, and Medicine Flower will include a Special Bonus Sample with any order.  Don't forget these extracts are super concentrated, so a little goes a very long way!

thank you..this was my first crack...i was thinking a bit of tamarind to make it more yellow..but hope it does not alter the flavor..as for simpler...you could eliminate the dates and just use maple syrup....you dont have to use cinnamon or rum extracts...but that one or 2 drops of rum really gives it a great flavor....you def want to keep the nutmeg and cinnamon powder....

def gonna try some tamarind for the yellow..let us know how you make out.
