Egg Nog sounds totally gross in English, but it is even worse in French “Lait de poule” [Chicken Milk.] But Père Noël has to have a drink to go with his cookies, so this is what we whip up chez moi.

So go and get your “noggin” ready [old English word for small cup] and create a batch of this creamy holiday beverage.
     
Recipe:
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/3 cup macadamia nuts
  • 2 tbls cashew butter 
  • 2 pitted dates
  • 1 tbls agave
  • 1 tsp vanilla flavor or fresh vanilla bean
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 frozen banana
Place all ingredients in a blender and process at high power until nice and smooth. Pour into glasses and sprinkle with cinnamon, nutmeg or cocoa powder.
