View Full Version : Raw Nog
12-01-2008, 04:43 AM
Hi, it's getting closer to the holidays so I was wondering who has made raw nog, was it good/not good/ similar to the real egg nog? what was the recipe...
Also has anyone made or seen recipes for some peppermint chocolate treats?
I'm trying to get some ideas for the holidays :) :)
Thanks for anyone who shares!

Here's a Recipe from My Files as I copied it. I haven't made it.
2 cups Almond Cream (see below)
1/3 cup raw macadamia nuts
2 tablespoons date paste (see note)
1 teaspoon maple syrup or agave nectar
1 teaspoon flax oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg, plus additional for garnish
1 frozen banana, thawed 5 minutes and broken in two or three pieces
Place 1 cup of the Almond Cream, the macadamia nuts, and the date paste in a Vita-Mix or high speed blender and process until smooth. Add the maple syrup, flax oil, vanilla extract, and nutmeg and blend. Add the remaining Almond Cream and the banana and blend again until smooth. Serve immediately, sprinkled with additional nutmeg.
Note: To make date paste, place 1/3 cup water and 1 cup soaked pitted dates in a food processor and process until smooth. Yield: 1 cup. Stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator, date paste will keep for 2 weeks. Makes 4 servings.
*Thank you to Cherie Soria for this recipe.
1 cup whole, raw almonds, soaked 8-12 hours, drained, and rinsed (about 1 1/2 cups after soaking)
2 cups water
2 tablespoons date paste
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Place the almonds, 1 1/2 cups of the water, the date paste, and the vanilla extract in a blender and process until smooth. Add the remaining 1/2 cup water and blend again. To separate the “cream” from the almond skins and pulp, squeeze the blended mixture through a double layer of cheesecloth or a mesh bag. Serve at room temperature or chilled. Stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator, Almond Cream will keep for five days. Makes 2 cups.

I got an idea, let me know if this doesn't sound like an idea to anyone else.
I have Grezzo's pumpkin ice cream... What if I mixed it with one of the raw nog recipes??? Either a cold pumpkin raw nog or let it settle to room temp for a super thick pumpkin raw nog.... anyone..? :o
Anyone tried the pumpkin ice cream..??? It kinda taste like egg nog.. or is it just me? :D

1 Medium Banana (not overly ripe) you want a semi sweet to a more bitter banana. 1 Vanilla bean peeled and scraped. Blend on high with 1 cup of Almond mylk. (Add more almond mylk to liking). It should be room temp.
