Dairy Free Eggnog “Smoothie”


This is my own version of the traditional “Eggnog”, except it’s dairy free, 100% RAW and tastes absolutely amazing! I have been experimenting with new recipes using my favorite Vanilla Warrior Blend Raw Protein Powder by Sun Warrior, and the blend of spices and flavors in this smoothie, combined with the delicious creaminess of the vanilla protein powder resulted in — well — your traditional Eggnog. So yummy.

  5. Pour and enjoy!

I like to sprinkle some extra cinnamon and nutmeg on top (it looks pretty) and I’ve also tried it with some slivered almonds sprinkled on top which was so yummy, but you really don’t need to add anything else to this – it has such lovely flavors you will want to savor every last sip!
