Raw Egglessnog

Our holiday raw food recipe quest continues with dairy free, healthy “eggnog”. Christmas has always been magical for me. Every room of our home was decorated with beautiful garlands and Christmas cheer. My mother turned into the Christmas Angel and our home was stunning with it’s magical transformation. Along with the decorations, came the food and drinks. Tom & Jerry’s (made with vanilla for me), eggnog, dozens of different cookies. Christmas wasn’t just a holiday, it was a month long event.


Raw Food Recipe: Eggless Nog


I have continued this tradition for my family. Boxes of decorations and ornaments make their way out of storage and our home begins it’s own transformation. Pine garlands, lights, and wreaths on every door, inside and out. As the decorating starts, I find myself craving the traditional holiday beverages. But the traditional recipes are not exactly healthy. Milk, cream, sugar and eggs. Sounds divine but not for my heart or my waist. So, with the inspiration from my friend, Joanna from Fresh Blessings, I give you the raw food, healthy version of eggnog. Dairy free, sweetened with dates, a little agave, and loaded with healthy ingredients and nutrients. I have served this to my non-raw friends and they love it. Toast the holidays to health with this wonderful beverage.


  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1 young coconut (flesh from)
  • 3 dates
  • 3 tablespoons agave (or liquid sweetener of your choice)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1 teaspoon rum extract (not raw but completes the eggnog flavor)
  • 3 cups water
  1. Place all ingredients in blender and blend until very smooth.
  2. Strain through nut milk bag.
  3. Top with a sprinkle of extra nutmeg. You can serve this warm or cold.

    I was surprised to find eggnog in my local grocery store. It is only the middle of October! The ‘season’ seems to sneak in earlier every year! I am excited to make my own raw ‘nog’ . However I can’t eat coconut anymore as it makes me ill. Do you have any suggestions that I could try? I am going to have so much fun making all of your recipes! Me, the person who does not like cooking!!
    Thank you Susan.

    Thanks so much for your amazing recipes ( I’ve purchased alla your ebooks), i can’t wait to make it… where cani buy organic extract rum? I’ve found an Organic Rum Flavor Extract, is it fine for this recipe?
    Thanks again.

      I have seen it as organic rum extract powder. You can google that.

    I’m looking forward to making this for New Year’s Eve. I didn’t buy the rum flavoring though because it had too many artificial ingredients and didn’t sound healthy. Do you know of a brand that may be organic?

    Thank you!

    Why wouldn’t you use the water from the young coconut in place of plain water? I know there aren’t three cups of water in a coconut, but I would think you could use whatever coconut water you had and then the balance that was needed with plain water… Right?

      Louise, It has to do with flavor profile. I wanted this to taste more like an egg nog. Too much coconut flavor will make a coconut nog. :-) But you are free to use it if you like. I always just drink any extra coconut water I have.

    The eggless nog sounds great, can’t wait to try it. I buy Birds Eye fresh frozen Coconut and will try it as I can’t seem to crack the fresh ones and they are hard to find here. (Texas Panhandle) I am fighting stage 4-B Cancer that has spread and your recipes are very helpful. God has the last word in my life and has kept me alive almost two years. All of you who try and eat as God created are blessed.
    Thank You Joni

    I have not tried this, but will this holiday season – looks yummy, would canned coconut milk work? I have a hard time finding young coconuts where I live.

    Also – I love this photo :)
