Decadent and velvety, this egg-free, dairy-free nog is sure to be the hit of the party. The season. The year! Cashews, coconut milk, dates, vanilla, nutmeg, and a pinch of sea salt make up this glorious situation. Rum optional!
215-ounce cans lite coconut milk
2tablespoonsfreshly ground nutmeg + more for garnish
2tablespoonsvanilla bean paste or pure vanilla extract
1/4teaspoonfine-grain sea salt
Optional cinnamon rims:
Place all ingredients, starting with 8 of the dates, into the pitcher of a large high-speed blender. Puree until smooth. Taste; add and puree additional dates if you'd like it a bit sweeter. Refrigerate for at least an hour to chill. Serve, adding a bit of rum to each (adult!) serving if desired. Keeps refrigerated for 4-5 days.
For optional cinnamon rims, mix sugar and cinnamon in a saucer. Pour a bit of water in a second saucer. Lightly dip the rims of the glasses first into the water and then in the cinnamon sugar mix. Voila!
