Today I have a simple seasonal recipe just for you! I was shopping along my grocery store and I was peaking in the dairy isle and I saw a ton of different kind of eggnog. I said it last year and I’ll say it again this year, I am not an eggnog fan. I don’t mind a little bit, like once a year. The taste of it is just too much for me. Now my family, they LOVE eggnog. So when this time of year comes around, I always make them eggnog recipes. So I made them today’s recipe, but guess what? It ended up for me!!! All me, muhaha…
I made a dairy free, vegan, gluten-free eggnog smoothie! Oh my gosh, it is creamy and so darn good. I am shocked on how much I like it! It doesn’t has that weird, almost alcohol taste that most eggnog have. I don’t know what that taste is, but I don’t like it. But my smoothie doesn’t have it! My Eggnog Smoothie has the most wonderful creamy flavor and topped with a dash of fresh nutmeg really took my smoothie to another level. I LOVE it!!
It’s made with three simple ingredients. So Delicious Coconut Eggnog, a frozen banana and a dash of nutmeg. It can’t get anymore simpler then that! When I was looking at the nutritional label I was a little disappointed in the nutritional stats, until I looked at my Husbands eggnog.
So Delicious Eggnog stats for 1/2 cup – Calories: 90, Fat: 3, Saturated Fat: 3, Sodium: 115, Carbs: 15, Fiber: 1, Sugar: 14, Protein: 0
My Husbands Southern Comfort Eggnog (It Traditional Eggnog, no alcohol) stats for 1/2 cup – Calories: 200, Fat: 9, Saturated Fat: 5, Sodium: 100, Carbs: 26, Fiber: 0, Sugar: 20, Protein: 5
I am now pretty impressed with So Delicious. I also googled other brand eggnog stats just to compare and they were just about the same Southern Comforts, give or take a couple of calories. So I am happy with my Dairy Free Eggnog! Yah!! Now I actually like eggnog, I don’t feel so bad drinking it and I did give some to my Husband and he really liked it too. Oh and I didn’t taste the coconut in it!!
- 2 cups So Delicious Coconut Milk Eggnog or Eggnog of your choice
- 1 banana, frozen
- 1 dash nutmeg
- Place coconut eggnog and banana in a blender and process until smooth. Top with a dash of nutmeg.
I thought I would share with you a few eggnog recipes that I have made.
First up my Eggnog Frappe
Eggnog Banana Bread with Boozy Rum Glaze
Wow, I didn’t make that much with eggnog. I probably should change that. Now that I have some of my eggnog left, I have a few recipes stirring around in my head!
One last thing, I wanted to let you know that I wasn’t asked to promote or share SO Delicious Coconut Milk Eggnog. I found it at the store and I really liked it and wanted to share it with you. You can of course make this smoothie with regular eggnog or homemade eggnog. Either way it will taste great! 🙂
Have a wonderful weekend!
P.S. I was drinking my Eggnog Smoothie in front of the fireplace. See my Sammy sleeping to the left of the picture. 🙂
Love this healthier version of nog! I can’t stand drinking my calories, so regular eggnog is not for me either!

It’s crazy how many calories are in eggnog. I’m with you, I don’t like to drink my calories!!
