The Origin of Eggnog: A Brief History

The origins of eggnog can be traced back to medieval England, where it was a popular wintertime beverage among the aristocracy. The name “eggnog” is believed to be a combination of “egg” and “nog,” a type of strong ale that was often served during the holiday season. The traditional recipe consisted of eggs, milk, cream, and spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon. As it made its way to the colonies, it was adapted to include rum, whiskey, or brandy, and it became a popular holiday drink in the United States.

Ingredients & Substitutions: What Is In A The Vegan Eggnog Smoothie Recipe

To make a delicious and nutritious vegan eggnog smoothie with protein powder, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ cup of raw cashews
  • 1 tbsp of maple syrup
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp of ground nutmeg
  • 1 scoop of vanilla vegan protein powder
  • 1 tbsp of chia seeds (optional)
  • 1 tbsp of flax seeds (optional)
  • 1 tbsp of hemp hearts (optional)
  • ½ tsp of cinnamon
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2 large pitted medjool dates (make sure they are large medjool)
  • 3 ice cubes
  • 1 heaping tbsp of all natural peanut butter
  • ¼ tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of plant milk (Coconut is my favourite)

Adding Protein and Other Nutrients

By adding a scoop of vegan protein powder to your eggnog smoothie, you can increase its protein content, which is important for building and repairing muscles. Additionally, adding chia seeds, flax seeds, and hemp hearts can provide your smoothie with essential fatty acids, fiber, and antioxidants, which are important for your overall health and well-being.

Protein Powder: To make this smoothie vegan, use a plant-based protein powder. I use orgain vanilla bean organic protein. Whatever protein you choose, make sure it’s vanilla flavored. 

Sweeteners and Flavors

To sweeten and flavor your vegan eggnog smoothie, you can use maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg, which are common ingredients in eggnog recipes. You can also add a pinch of salt to enhance the flavor and balance the sweetness. Finally, adding Medjool dates and peanut butter can provide your smoothie with natural sweetness and a rich and creamy texture.

Plant-Based Milk Options

You can use any type of plant-based milk that you prefer, such as almond milk, soy milk, or oat milk. Coconut milk is also a popular option because it provides a creamy and tropical flavor that complements the eggnog spices. However, you should avoid using sweetened or flavored milk, as they can add unnecessary sugars and calories to your smoothie.

Helpful Tools

Use a high-powered blender: A powerful blender will help ensure that all of the ingredients are fully combined and that the smoothie is smooth and creamy.

Tips & Tricks For This Vegan Eggnog Smoothie Recipe

  • This recipe calls for only 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract. It may seem so small that it’s tempting to skip. But don’t skip this ingredient! A little bit adds a lot of flavour. Vanilla is one of the key ingredients in eggnog.
  • Medjool dates are used in this recipe as a sweetener. They have a sweet caramel flavour and are a healthy alternative to processed sugar.
  • Whatever protein you choose, make sure it’s vanilla flavoured.
  • It may seem strange to have peanut butter in eggnog. But this ingredient adds an element of fat and makes the smoothie thicker and creamier.
