I love eggnog! But the traditional version contains heavy cream, eggs, and milk, the most common food allergens. Although eggs and dairy have beneficial properties, the proteins can be difficult to digest, and many people have sensitivities to these foods. Why should they have to sit out eggnog season?
Enter the vegan nog!

I love this recipe! Thank you Rose. I just got her holiday e-Cookbook. All of the recipes are sugar, dairy, and gluten-free. It’s so good!
This recipe sounds great, except for the bananas, can you recommend a substitute?
