Wellness Wednesday – Coconut Milk Egg Nog!

by Arielle J on December 28, 2011

My new fave holiday treat…a dash of So Delicious┬« Coconut Milk Egg Nog
in a cup of Black Tea! (It’s also a delicious treat to just drink on its own, cold, in glass with ice.)

yummmmm!

yummmmm!

INGREDIENTS: Organic Coconut Milk (Organic Coconut Milk (Water, Organic Coconut Cream), Organic Dried Cane Syrup, Natural Flavors, Annatto for color, kosher salt, carrageenan, guar gum, locust bean gum, spices (nutmeg).

It does have sugar in it (see the ingredients above) and some “stuff” I normally wouldn’t drink, but you won’t need to drink much to satisfy your holiday sweet tooth. Just a little and your taste buds (and tummy) will be happy!

I actually prefer the soy version (Silk Soy Milk Egg Nog)- its a little more creamy, and less thick than the coconut version above, but for those who don’t like to consume soy, the coconut milk version is a DELISH option.

also yum, yum, yum!!

also yum, yum, yum!!

INGREDIENTS: All Natural Soymilk (Filtered Water, Whole Soybeans), All Natural Evaporated Cane Juice, Natural Flavors, Sea Salt, Carrageenan, Turmeric and Annatto (vegetable color).

An even better option, is to make your own Egg Nog! I haven’t had the chance to try it out yet (I was in Florida for the past few days and wasn’t craving egg nog there), but I encourage you to experiement and try out this recipe! I LOVE most of Elana’s recipes…and this recipe just looks SO YUMMY!
