When the holidays come around,
I don’t really get excited about the presents…
I get excited about what I’m going to eat and drink!
Egg nog is one of my favorite holiday
treats, but it’s traditionally made with
loads of sugar, cream and even whipped raw eggs.
Not Be Well with Arielle approved.
And, the healthy versions typically have bananas in it — yuck!
So instead of depriving myself of my favorite
holiday treat, I did a lot of recipe testing and healthified it into
the healthiest, most delicious egg nog ever!
This Healthy Egg Nog is made without
refined sugar, cream, milk, raw eggs or banana.
Instead, its sweetened with dates and coconut water,
and made with avocado and coconut milk and almond milk
to add the perfect amount of creaminess.
It’s spiced just right
with some of Simply Organic’s cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla
and a splash of almond extract.
Healthy enough to drink for breakfast on-the-go,
sweet enough to indulge in for a holiday dessert
