spiked pumpkin "nog" + cinnamon whipped cream

SMBP // Spiked "Nog" + cinnamon whipped cream
I had never experienced eggnog prior to meeting Justin, as I may have mentioned before, growing up we never ate anything that my Mom + Dad didn't eat- my Mom was a pretty finicky eater and my Dad's only real dislike are peas (even chickpeas!) + lima beans. Needless to say they were never on the eggnog band wagon.

Justin on the other hand loved it! He introduced me to eggnog spiked with rum one Thanksgiving, I fell hard and fast in love with the slightly sweet creamy spiked nog.....for a total of one day. You see, we celebrated a bit early while I was cooking our HUGE Thanksgiving Feast, needless to say neither of us enjoyed our Thanksgiving Dinner on the day it was made, we were so full and pumped up on Eggnog there was no room left for anything else. 

When we became Vegans Eggnog, of course was out for the both of us. 

Until we came across Justin's favorite Holiday Beverage veganized!


SMBP // Spiked "Nog" + cinnamon whipped cream
Justin could hardly contain himself  the day I brought home Vegan Nog, this was probably  3 years ago. So it was a no brainier when So Delicious contacted me to sample their Holiday Beverages which is very similar to Eggnog in thickness and festiveness! 

Given the pumpkin madness I thought what better way than to celebrate with a Spiked Pumpkin Pice Nog. It is the perfect beverage to complete a day of raking leaves.

Can you agree that whipped cream makes everything better?! So Delicious has a brand new Coconut Whipped Topping on the Market- this stuff is amazing! I am all for whipping up your own coconut whipped cream, however I am sure we all have forgotten once or twice to place the can in the fridge the night before or just plan got a dud where the cream never separated.

Let me tell you, this will be your saving grace. It stores in your Freezer and you take it out the night before and store it in the fridge to thaw (I had mine in the fridge for like 4/5 days before using) , take the cover off and whip it up nice and fully with a spoon before serving. 

I love dressing mine up with a hit of cinnamon.

Rum was out liquor of choice but feel free to use Brandy or whiskey- a shot of Kahlua would be pretty fantastic too.

  1. Ahhhhhhhh this is the best discovery ever!! Eggnog is one of those things I just assumed would never be vegan. This sounds great!

  2. I have been searching for the coconut whip everywhere. I can't wait to get my hands on it. I will probably devour it with a spoon in one sitting.

  3. I've been meaning to go out and try some of these products! Now I HAVE to!

    I loved Eggnog as a kid. We always had it around. But I never understood the lure of adding rum....until last year. Oh man that's some good stuff ;)

  4. I never grew up with eggnog either, nor did I particularly like it when I first tried it, but this looks like something that will have to make an appearance at Thanksgiving this year - it looks so tasty! Thanks so much for sharing!
