Dairy-Free Raw Eggnog Recipe: Featuring Almond & Coconut Milk

Dairy Free Raw Eggnog

I still remember our dairy-free days like they were yesterday. Although I enjoy raw dairy now, there are some dairy-free recipes that I have grown to love. This yummy and high-fat dairy-free raw eggnog is one of them. It’s a great way to start your day whether it’s the holiday season or not!

It is very simple to make, too. I find it tastes best with ingredients that are very fresh. Pin this recipe so you don’t lose it…you won’t regret it!

  • Separate 3 eggs

Notes

Coconut milk: If you cannot source fresh coconuts, you can make coconut milk using 1/2 cup warm water and 1/2 cup shredded coconut or coconut flakes. Find my favorite brand of coconut flakes by clicking here.
