5 Dairy-Free Eggnogs so Good Your Guests Won’t Even Know They’re Vegan
Eggnog is a staple for many households during the holiday season. If your family is like mine, store-bought eggnog has always been the only option because of busy December schedules. Plus, does anyone really want to sip on a drink with raw egg as an ingredient? Luckily, vegans and non-vegans alike can now find delicious, egg-free nog that mimics the creamy, nutmeg-y taste of everyone's favorite winter drink. Now that you're plant-based you might be thinking that you have to take some time to make homemade vegan eggnog, but that's not the case.
Almond Breeze Almondmilk Nog
Almond Breeze is the classic eggnog all vegans are looking to drink on holidays. Almond Breeze milk alternatives have never failed us and their eggnog lives up to all expectations we had. It's one of the most allergen-friendly since it's not only dairy-free but also soy-free, lactose-free, peanut-free, casein-free, egg-free and gluten-free.
We loved this one served up plain, but we also think this is a tasty option for your spiked eggnog. Almond Breeze is another allergen-friendly nog that will fool your non-vegan guests into thinking they're drinking the real thing. Serve it up and then show them the carton after!
Trader Joe's Almond Nog
Trader Joe's almond-based eggnog was an office favorite. If you don't like overly sweetened eggnog with a thinner consistency, this one is for you. A true eggnog lover will search for the spice and sweet flavors in a traditional eggnog. The thin consistency makes this the perfect choice for a nog latte.

Califia Farms Holiday Nog
The office was divided on Califia's Holiday Nog. Some found the spices and taste to resemble the exact taste of eggnog whereas others thought Califa tasted like bubblegum. This nog is for anyone who likes the flavors of nutmeg and ginger. The creamiest option of the bunch makes you feel like your indulging in a sweet treat but with only 1.5 grams of fat and no saturated fat, it's a treat that isn't too bad for you.
Good Karma Dairy-Free Holiday Nog
Good Karma's Flaxmilk Holiday Nog is perfect for anyone who is nut-free or who doesn't like almond milk. This nog is the most allergen-friendly since it is free of the top eight allergies including, gluten, dairy, and nuts. The holiday nog is made with flaxseed oil and has a resemblance to the egg texture seen in traditional nog.

So delicious is another great alternative to almond milk-based eggnog. The consistency of So Delicious mimics regular eggnog perfectly. This nog is described as a rich taste that has the same thickness as real eggnog. The coconut flavor is perfect in this eggnog but treat this nog as an indulgence since it has 2 grams of sat fat and 15 grams of carbs. If you go crazy for a sweet nog, put this dairy-free eggnog on your grocery list.
