Cost $10/ 7€
For the Rest
- 1 litre oat milk I use Oatly, the barista version
- 1 tsp cinnamon ground
- 5 rasps nutmeg whole
- 1 pc star anise
- 3 tbsp brown sugar
- 4 pc clove
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
- 1/16 tsp xanthan gum optional
- dark spiced rum to taste, optional
Soak the cashew creams in cold water for at least 2 hours or preferably overnight a container with a lid in the fridge.
Heat the oat milk in a saucepan with everything except for the xanthan gum. Heat until steam starts to release from the milk - just under a boil. Remove from heat and let cool.
When the milk has cooled slightly transfer to a jug and refrigerate for 2 hours or until completely chilled.
Strain the infused oat milk with a fine mesh strainer.
Drain the water from the soaked cashews and discard. Blend the cashews with a ladle or two of the infused oat milk until smooth.
Mix all of the cashew cream with the cooled and infused oatmilk and the xanthan gum in a large jug. Blend until smooth and frothy.
To serve, fill a glass with some ice. Add as much rum as you like and pour the oat milk eggnog over top. Serve with a paper straw and enjoy. Happy Holidays!
