Holiday smoothie & Almond eggnog
Other than lots of work and good eating, holiday cooking in this house means getting creative and innovative.
Almond Milk Eggnog
Similar in taste & texture to a boiled custard, this almond eggnog is sure to please. Optional half & half and whipped egg white garnish!
I had been craving eggnog ever since it appeared on the grocer's shelves. Dairy-free almond eggnog was available, but never anywhere as dairy-free and sugar-free (Unless it contained an artificial sweetener - worse than sugar!). So, I checked out recipes online, found one that looked simple and played with it until my almond milk eggnog passed the taste-test. (I decided to add a little half and half, but that's optional) Best of all it passed my husband's too. He came back for seconds!
The holiday smoothie resulted from left-overs and fruit whose life-expectancy was about to end. But I'm not sure whether it is a sweet potato smoothie or a coconut-strawberry colada. By either name, it's delicious. Just follow this link for my tasty and healthy sweet potato smoothie with strawberry colada overtones. It was just what we needed for a mid-afternoon snack.
