Copycat Eggnog

This is a perfect drink for the holiday season. It only takes a couple of minutes to whip up, and it looks and tastes crazily similar to true eggnog thanks to turmeric, frozen banana and nutmeg.

Turmeric gives this drink it’s yellowish colour and frozen banana adds natural sweetness and creaminess. A spice blend of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and vanilla adds warm, festive flavour and masks the banana taste. What you’re left with is a thick, creamy perfectly spiced drink.

This eggnog only has 8 ingredients (6 of which are spices), and it’s ready to drink in 5 minutes. It’s sweetened with banana, but if you find that it’s not sweet enough you can add 1 or two spoons of maple syrup or agave.   

This drink is best enjoyed served with holiday cookies or other festive treats, while cuddled up in holiday pajamas with a good book and Christmas music in the background. 

I hope you enjoy this drink! If you give it a try, snap a picture and tag it #peacemealxo on instagram. I’d love to see your creations!

Instructions
  1. Put all ingredients in a blender, starting with just 1 tsp of turmeric. Blend until smooth and adjust spices to taste.
