NOTHING says Christmas like eggnog! RTN’s vegan version uses dates, cashews and apricots, plus almond milk and brandy to reinvent this classic festive tipple.
PREP: 15 MINS (plus overnight soaking)
25g pitted dates
25g cashew nuts
25g dried apricots
¼ tsp mixed spice
1 vanilla pod, seeds only
1l sweetened almond milk
ice, to serve
nutmeg, to serve
Soak the dates, cashews, apricots and mixed spice in the brandy overnight.
The next day, tip the mixture into a blender and add the seeds from the vanilla pod and the almond milk. Blitz until smooth, then pour into eight tall glasses (use a sieve, if you like) with ice and grate some nutmeg on top.
