Eggnog is a holiday staple. So much so that 122 pounds of it are consumed every holiday season, and it's the
top-searched holiday recipe
in multiple states.
Just like the name states, the traditional beverage is made with egg yolks, milk, and heavy cream—not exactly the most eco-friendly combo, as both
eggs and dairy
. But if you're looking for a plant-based version that's better for the planet, vegan eggnog is totally possible—and it only takes a minute or two to make.

that's just as delicious and creamy as the real thing—no eggs needed. Bodrug swapped the animal products for
oat milk
and coconut milk, giving it the beloved thick and creamy texture. Then maple syrup, vanilla extract, nutmeg, and cinnamon provide the sweetness and flavor.
Once blended, you get a drink that rivals any store-bought option you'll find. Want to give it a try for yourself? Here's everything you'll need to make vegan eggnog of your own. It's so tasty you'll want to sip on it all season long.
