½ cup raw cashews
1 ½ cups unsweetened coconut milk
5-6 soft pitted medjool dates
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
¼ tsp nutmeg (optional: + more for sprinkling)
⅛ tsp cloves
⅛ tsp salt
½ cup ice cubes
Place cashews in a glass bowl and cover with very hot water. Soak for them about 10 minutes or until they soften a little. Strain them and discard the water. (If your dates are hard, you can add them to the water.)
Blend all ingredients on high speed until the consistency is very smooth and everything is blended together.
Sprinkle a dash of nutmeg on top and serve immediately.
Now it won’t taste the same as traditional eggnog, but as the old cliche goes, some traditions are made to be broken.
