Thisraw vegan eggnog recipe by Anna Speaks of Raw Guru is creamy, comforting, and indulgent. Unlike traditional eggnog, this reinvented version will leave you feeling light.

Do you get stressed out around the holidays? If so, you’re certainly not alone. There’s the last minute holiday shopping, long lines basically wherever you go, events to attend, food to prep, finances to keep balanced, and your own health goals to look after (and it’s not always easy… another plate of fudge in the break room…really?!) And while spending time with family is wonderful, we think it’s safe to say most of us could use a little support (and some good old fashioned deep breathing) to help get us through this time of year as peacefully and gracefully as possible.

Yep, the holidays are a busy, bustling, emotionally and even spiritually complex time. But also a magical time. The key is to see the beauty in the chaos, be gentle and compassionate (with ourselves and others), slow down enough to fully enjoy the moment and memories, and drink lots of egg nog. Speaking of which….*wink*

This recipe may look and taste a whole lot like the “real deal”(creamy, sweet, and spiced with nutmeg to perfection), but it’s much lighter on the tummy and will leave you feeling like a million bucks. Not only that, but it also has a super secret, stress-reducing, anxiety-squelching superfood ingredient. And no, we’re not trying to classify rum as a superfood. We’re talking broad spectrum, cold processed Hemp CBD extract.

What Is CBD?

Hemp CBD is short for cannabidiol, just one of over 113 different cannibinoids which have been isolated from the hemp plant (Cannabis Sativa). Unlike THC – the cannibinoid responsible for marijuana’s high – CBD doesn’t interact with the same cannabinoid receptor sites in the central and peripheral nervous system, and has no psychoactive effect. In contrast, CBD’s effects are more health-oriented and holistic. Two of CBD’s main claims to fame are its anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties. Many have also reported less anxiety, deeper, more restful sleep, and a calmer nervous system while ingesting CBD over time. Like many other herbs and superfoods such as reishi mushroom, ginseng, and ashwagandha, CBD has been shown to have adaptogenic properties, meaning it may help regulate and support all systems of the body, promoting balance and resilience.

Beyond CBD, a few drops of therapeutic grade nutmeg essential oil gives this recipe an additional functional twist. Nutmeg oil, while lending that classic egg nog flavor, also lends anti-inflammatory benefits, and is known for its calming, mildly sedative effect on the nervous system. We’re feeling more zen already.

Not only that but, this recipe also leaves out all traces of dairy products and eggs, so it’s completely suitable for both vegans and omnivores alike. Instead of leaving you feeling queasy from too much sugar, it’s also refined sugar-free, relying on the mellow, delicious sweetness of real maple syrup. While the therapeutic grade nutmeg oil really takes the flavor to the next level, you can also use nutmeg spice in powdered form (preferably freshly ground from whole nutmeg – that flavor tho!).

Cheers to a happy, healthy, downright blissful holiday season!

Stress-Free CBD Infused Raw Vegan Egg Nog

*Makes 2, 8 oz servings

Ingredients:

  • 16 oz fresh hazelnut milk (see recipe below)
  • ½ cup young Thai coconut meat (you can also find frozen pureed Thai coconut meat at many health food stores. If using this, use about ¼ cup)
  • 3 TBSP. maple syrup, or use 2 Tbs + 3 drops liquid stevia to lower sugar content
  • 2 tspn. raw chia seeds
  • 3 drops therapeutic grade nutmeg oil (we used Young Living)
  • 1 dropperful (or more!) Veggimins Organic Hemp Oil with Hemp Extract – any strength
  • 1 tspn. vanilla extract
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • Pinch of Himalayan sea salt
  • LOVE

Directions:

Blend ingredients until smooth and creamy – for about 15 – 20 seconds to allow chia to fully break down and coconut to get ultra creamy.

Raw Hazelnut Milk

  • 1 cup raw hazelnuts, soaked
  • 4 cups purified water
  • Pinch Himalayan sea salt

Ingredients:

Directions:

1. Soak hazelnuts for a minimum of 8 hours (you can simply soak them overnight). Blend soaked hazelnuts with 1 cup of water until a paste forms, then add in the additional 3 cups of water and a pinch of salt and blend again. This 2 step process will help ensure all of the hazelnuts blend down properly, especially if you aren’t using a high speed blender.

2. Strain milk through a nut milk bag, removing the milk from the fiber.

3. Store milk in a glass, airtight jar (we love quart sized mason jars!) in the fridge for up to 7 days. It is perishable, but the pinch of salt will help preserve it a bit.
