Someone recently asked me if there was such a thing as vegan eggnog. The answer is YES! I found three different brands at Whole Foods Market in Orange County, CA.

The So Delicious coconut milk Nog has what I would call a medium-thick consistency, while the Califia Farms almond milk Holiday Nog and the Silk soy milk Seasonal Nog have more of a medium-thin consistency. All three brands were sweet, and had flavors very reminiscent of eggnog. Please be aware that although all of these products are vegan (and therefore cholesterol-free and animal-protein-free!), they do contain a fair amount of sugar (as does dairy eggnog I imagine). But this is still great news for nog lovers who want to indulge more consciously and compassionately.

Ryan and I both like pumpkin (actually me more than Ryan), so we also tried the Silk Pumpkin Spice, which we enjoyed a lot.

I believe all of these are seasonal flavors, which means they won't be around after the holidays.

Thanks for reading. Peace and love to all who live.
