I always think of eggnog as a holiday drink that can only be consumed in the month between Christmas and New Years. I saw the first eggnog latte of the season slide across the counter at Starbucks this morning, though, so I thought I’d better get this posted sooner rather than later.

If you are making this tasty concoction for lattes, omit the rum. Or not, depending on the time of day…


1 1/2 cups soy milk or other non-dairy milk
2 dates
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup raw, unsalted cashews
1/8 tsp grated nutmeg
2 ounces spiced rum

Blend  everything except the rum in a high-powered blender until smooth. Combine with rum and pour into two glasses. Sprinkle on a bit more nutmeg for fun.
