Festive and Creamy Oat Milk Eggnog Recipe (vegan)

by Kaitlynn Fenley

Enjoy festive and creamy eggnog this Christmas, but make it dairy free and vegan with my delicious oat milk eggnog recipe.

Homemade Vegan Eggnog for Christmas

I used to LOVE enjoying a rich glass of Pennsylvania dutch with my parents on Christmas. As a south Lousiaianian, I also used to drink eggnog daiquiris… because Louisiana. I, of course, felt like crap after drinking these things. lol.

When I was vegan, I decided to try my hand at making some homemade vegan eggnog. It was a success!

I could drink this eggnog for breakfast; it’s so good and quite healthy too.

I love that there are only a few simple and healthy ingredients in this recipe, and this eggnog still has all the delicious and creamy thickness of real eggnog. This recipe is not alcoholic, but if you want that, all you have to do is add a shot of bourbon to your glass.

How to Make Homemade Oat Milk Eggnog (Vegan)

This is a ridiculously easy recipe. Do you have a blender and an hour to spare for soaking cashews? Well, then you can make this recipe!

As long as you use RAW cashews and follow all the directions, you cannot mess up this recipe. Using raw cashews is very important. If you try to use roasted cashews, it will come out chunky with a terrible texture.

Traditional Vanilla and Nutmeg Oat Milk Eggnog

There are a lot of spice variations in eggnog recipes, so I went with a traditional flavoring.

Traditional eggnog has a rich nutmeg and vanilla flavor. I added a bit of cinnamon, but the prominent flavor is vanilla and nutmeg. You can add a tiny bit of ground clove if you like a little more “spice”.
