Drinking Lessons: The Noggy Stuff

Eggnog is a love-it-or-hate-it kind of drink…and Luna is staunchly in the hate-it camp. The Spirit Guides school him on the history (revelation: nog is NOT part of the drink itself) and everyone comes up with a recipe to try. One of them doesn’t even include eggs. Intriguing, right? Listen in and find out why! And how! And…what it tastes like.  


Luna's VeggNog


  • 2 cups homemade cashew milk or other non-dairy milk of your choice.
  • ½ cup full fat coconut milk
  • ⅓ cup raw cashews, soaked overnight or for at least 30 minutes (optional)*
  • 4-6 Medjool dates or 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • pinch of ground cinnamon
  • pinch of ground cloves
  • 1 oz amaretto
  • 1 oz rum

Blend milks, cashews, and dates or sugar in a blender; add amaretto and rum, and top with more cinnamon and nutmeg. Dunk cookies in it if you want…no judgment. It’s the holiday’s after all. (Credit to

Jordon's recipe came from, and Clayton's original eggnog recipe from last week can be found in the show notes for The Minty Stuff!
