Raw Vegan Eggnog

Vegan Eggnog

This raw vegan eggnog recipe is from Incredible Smoothies.

Check out Tracy’s website. She has over 400 green smoothie recipes.

Tracy also shares her inspiring story of how she and her husband transitioned from the Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) to a mostly raw vegan diet. Tracy suffered from high cholesterol, frequent heartburn, chronic acne, and weight issues and now has abundant energy, a flat stomach and glowing skin!

With the help of daily green smoothies, raw dishes, and a healthy exercise routine, Tracy and her husband both lost about 30 pounds and are so much healthier.

They are now on a mission to help other people achieve optimum health with the power of green energy smoothies and raw foods.

There are step-by-step instructions on how to begin making green smoothies, and lots of posts about using various leafy greens. It’s a fantastic resource for green smoothies.

Because it’s the holidays, I didn’t choose a green smoothie recipe, I wanted to share this raw vegan eggnog.

This raw vegan eggnog is gluten free, dairy free, egg free, soy free and refined sugar free. This recipe yields about 16 ounces, which is good for 2 standard glasses. But I don’t think you will want to be sharing! I gobbled up the whole batch in minutes. If you’re planning on serving this at a party, I would quadruple the batch!

I added more cinnamon to Tracy’s original eggnog recipe. Start with her recipe, and add more to taste.

Do not miss making this vegan eggnog. It’s amazing.

  1. I love how healthy this is – I can’t even stomach the real deal – definitely giving this recipe a try!

  2. Wow, an eggnog that doesn’t have oodles of fat in it. Now, that’s an eggnog I can stand behind. I honestly have always loved the holidays for the unique traditional foods that they bring, but eggnog is definitely one of those that I love but drink sparingly. This is a recipe that I don’t have to drink sparingly, as in a juice glass. With such healthy ingredients in it, I can actually drink a real glass’ worth of nog! Love that! I also like Tess’ idea of having more “kick” to it, so I definitely would use the cinnamon more lavishly. This is now a recipe I can add to my Christmas family collection of traditions. Thanks for sharing it, blender girl!

  3. I am EGGstatic (Ho ho- See what happened there?) that someone has finally created a fantastic, healthy, vegan alternative to Eggnog at last!!!!!! This is a wee holiday miracle with no guilt! Dates are the perfect sweetener and the banana gives this super treat a terrific creamy texture!!!!!! It’s not too rich but still so full of flavour!!! I’m going to choose this eggNOT (Wink, wink) over hot chocolate any day of the week!!! Happy Holidays!!!

  4. On the 1st day of Christmas The Blender Girl gave to me…An awesome Egg Nog recipe! (If you sing it…It does actually rhyme. 🙂

    1. Hey Zenzi,
      You just soak the dates to soften them and make them easier to work with. It also brings out the sweetness in really dry dates.
      But you don’t need to soak them to enjoy this recipe. I have been in a hurry tons of times and not soaked the dates and the recipe is delicious!

  5. I’ve had several raw vegan egg nogs, & just made yours. I have to say, it’s not my favorite. Perhaps too banana flavored & not sweet enough & not strong enough in its spices. It’s yummy, don’t get me wrong, & super healthy especially compared to the regular kind, but i think this recipe needs tweaking.

    1. Thanks Kaye, I really appreciate your feedback. This is a recipe from the Incredible Smoothies website. I loved this recipe. But, it’s always great to get different opinions. I’d love to taste some of your other recipes.

    2. If it tastes too much like banana, try using bananas that are just barely ripe. The more ripe it is, the sweeter it will be, but also has more banana flavor. Hope that helps.

  6. i don’t want to be the scrooge here, but although the recipe is great, it is technically not raw vegan. lol it is vegan, just not raw.

    1. Sorry Kelly, what isn’t raw about this recipe? Technically, if you don’t use alcohol-free vanilla extract, that would not be raw. But, are you referring to something else? This is a raw recipe.

  7. Just tried it! It really is delicious! It really does taste just like the traditional Egg Nog! Thank you!

    1. Yes, bananas help make it creamy and sweet. This recipe does contain a lot of carbs and sugar, but it’s so wonderful for a holiday treat.

  8. Made this tonight…good recipe but I must say a little too light on the spice as they were barely detectable. I added 1/2 tsp of each instead of 1/4 and it was much better.
