Yesterday morning I whipped up a batch of this extraordinarily excellent elixir, poured it into a Ball Jar, and then took it to a special friend. You should have seen the look of joy on her face. Share the love!
You can pour this Nog over ice, or drink it straight, pour in a shot of rum or brandy (if the spirit so inclines), or make it with hot water if you need warming up (and spirits won’t do the job). This delicious drink is seriously good, and you won’t need to spend even one speck of time wondering whether it’s good for you. It is. And in every way you can possibly imagine.
1 cup raw cashews (yes, they have to be RAW)
1 cup pitted dates
3 cups + 1 cup water
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 scant tsp. nutmeg
2 tsp. vanilla extract
Mix together all the ingredients in a high-speed blender, leaving aside the extra cup of water. Blend on high speed for 1-2 minutes until almost perfectly smooth. Taste, and add more water, one-quarter cup at a time, until it reaches your desired consistency. Cheers and happy holidays to you and yours!
