A Nod to the Nog

I love nog. I loved it before going vegan and we used to make our own vegan version (just for special occasions) before they came out with the pint cartons of vegan nog. Some days I feel like I should change my blog name to "Vegan Oldtimer" since I'm always droning on about the old days when we had to walk uphill both ways to the health food store for the bite of tempeh. Anyways, now we have so many different vegan nog options there will actually be vegan nog tasting at our local co-op's owner appreciation day next week. Is life good or what?
I recently tried So Delicious Coconut Milk Nog (thanks to VeganMoFo it didn't cost me anything!) and I have to say...it is soooo delicious! I don't like a nog that is skimpy on the nutmeg and this is the nutmegiest (this really should be a word) nog I have tasted to date. I want to marry this nog or maybe Rob and could have a threesome because I'd really like to keep him. The kids are fans (I cut it with regular soy milk so their pure little bodies wouldn't have too much sugar, or so I could make it last longer and have more to myself bwahahaha!). For adults, I have to say it tastes pretty fantastic with some Kahlua. I mean move over brandy - Kahlua is the spike for my nog from now on. I also baked up some East Coast Coffee Cake from Vegan Brunch to test out the baking magic of So Delicious Coconut Milk. I was right, this is the bomb for baking. I wouldn't buy it just to drink. I prefer my other plant milks for everyday use, but it is worth buying a carton for special holiday baking.

Thank you for the tasty review, Linda! We're delighted that you and your family are enjoying our new coconut milk nog so much! (We think nutmegiest should be a word, too!) And how did we miss your Persimmon Smoothie post? (YUM!) Now, where's that Kahlua?

Gail, Thanks for making a great nog! (And for donating coupons to the VeganMoFo giveaway.)

I think So Delicious is the best vegan nog out there, although I haven't tried it with Kahlua yet. I've been spiking mine with rum, which is pretty darn yummy too!

That Was Vegan,
I think So Delicious has the best vegan nog, but I'll know for sure after the tasting next week.

The unofficial winner at the co-op nog tasting (with five of us trying them at the time)...So Delicious! It beat out Silk and Earth Balance.
