Holiday without Eggnog? NEVER!!!!

Want the warm creaminess of eggnog but don't want to ingest the the chemical laden commercial preparation?  This raw eggless nog is awesome - sweet, warm spices, creamy, and delicious!  The addition of the Thai Coconut give great flavor and a little body to the beverage.  Serve it slightly warmed, with your morning cereal, or use it as a milk base in a your Hot - or warm - Cacao!

**Extra note - after straining the nog keep the delicious spiced nut pulp to use in holiday raw cookies and cakes!

1/2 C Almonds
1 Young Coconut (flesh from)
3 Dates
3 T Agave
1 1/2 t Cinnamon
1/2 t Nutmeg
1/2 t Cloves
1 t Rum Extract (not raw but completes the eggnog flavor)
3 C Water
Place all ingredients in blender and blend until very smooth. Strain through nut milk bag. Top with a sprinkle of extra nutmeg. You can serve this warm or cold.
