Quick Bite: Banana Nog

Confession: I've never had eggnog. It was never a holiday tradition in our house & by the time I grew old enough to buy it for myself, the apprehension of wasting money on something I wasn't sure I'd like was too daunting. Now, as a vegan, I guess I've missed the boat entirely [though I am mildly tempted by the So Delicious version that appears on the shelves during the holidays], but I still crave a drink with a bit of warm, holiday spice every now & then.

Enter: Banana-nog

This little concoction has similar flavors to eggnog...or what I would imagine eggnog tastes like...compliments of cinnamon & clove.


1 frozen banana 1/4 c So Delicious coconut milk, added to desired thickness 1 tbsp vanilla 1 tsp cinnamon 1/4 tsp ground cloves [or less, to taste] 1 ice cube

Place all in ingredients in blender [adding more or less coconut milk as you go] & process until smooth. Top with more cinnamon & serve in your favorite mug.

Tip: if you want a drink that's a little less smoothie-like, try unfrozen bananas to warm things up a bit.
