Meatless Monday: Soy Nog

Nutmeg was the ingredient today for the Meatless Monday A to Z (over at Better With Veggies), and when I think of nutmeg, I think of egg nog. Here's a quick and easy way to make a vegan version of this classic holiday drink.

Soy Nog

INGREDIENTS:
Soymilk
Extra-firm tofu
Maple Syrup
Vanilla

Spices:
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Ground cloves
DIRECTIONS:
Add ingredients to desired sweetness, texture, and amount, adjust spices accordingly. Combine all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Refrigerate before serving.

We made a few slight adjustments to the recipe, in that we used extra-soft tofu, which is what we had on hand and we did not refrigerate before trying. The nog may have been thinner in consistency versus one made with extra-firm tofu, but tasted great pre-refrigeration, as well as post. Super simple recipe just in time for the holidays!
