Raw Nog | Raederle's Raw Recipes For Raw Nog | Raw Raspberry "Eggnog"

Raspberry Eggnog Recipe by Raederle
The key to nog is the spices, not the actual contents of the nog. How much of each spice you use will depend partly on your personal preference. My husband prefers a lot of nutmeg, whereas I prefer a lot of cinnamon. On this page you'll find several different ways to make a delicious healthy raw eggnog without the use of eggs. Nutritional information is at the end of this post. Please remember to share on facebook, tweet about this one twitter, and pin this to your recipes pinboard on pinterest. Thanks!

How to make almond milk:

Soak almonds for four to twelve hours. (Overnight works.)
Soak in drinking water and rinse thoroughly with drinking water. This is to germinate the almonds. It makes them just begin the chemical changes of growing. This change is vital for your digestion. It increases enzyme activity, which means more digestibility. There is even a book out there called "Soak Your Nuts" because it really is that important.
Blend one cup of soaked almonds with four cups of water. Blend for about a minute. (Does not require a vitamix or special blender.)
Pour mixture into a nut-milk bag or into several layers of cheese cloth. Squeeze until the pulp in the bag is essentially dry and crumbly.

Alternative nut-milk (requires masticating juicer):

If you have a masticating juicer with a "blank" attachment, then you can make your own nut-butter by running almonds through several times. Running them through multiple times releases more and more oils, making it more and more oily. With a little water, nut butter can be used in place of nut milk.

Extra Rich Nog:

  • 4 very ripe bananas
  • 2 cups macadamia nuts
  • 2 dates or 2 dried bananas
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 pinches nutmeg
  • 1 pinch ginger
  • 1 pinch vanilla powder
Soak macadamia nuts for four to twelve hours.
Either make macadamia nut milk (same directions as almond milk above) or mash in juicer. An alternative to both is to simply blend them in the blender with water and use them that way, but the texture isn't as nice.
If you're using a juicer to mash, you may run dried bananas and/or dates through with the nuts to ensure you don't end up with chunks in your blender.
Blend everything together in your blender and enjoy.

Light Nog:

  • 4 very ripe bananas
  • ½ cup macadamia nut milk or almond milk
  • 1 date or 1 dried banana
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 pinches nutmeg
  • 1 pinch ginger
  • 1 pinch vanilla powder

Spice Variations:

  • Add a couple pinches of cardamom.
  • Use half a tablespoon of cinnamon, or up to three tablespoons.
  • Up to five pinches of nutmeg.
  • Up to four pinches of ginger.
  • Up to a teaspoon of vanilla powder.
  • Try adding a pinch of cayenne.
  • Try adding a pinch of raw cacao or carob.

Dessert Principle:

Fat (Nuts) + Sugar (Fruit) = Dessert

Examples:

Almonds + Banana = Nog
Almonds + Date = Pie Crust
Avocado + Banana = Pudding
Cashews + Frozen Mango = Icecream
Walnut Topping + Apple-Date Filling = Apple Pie
It's the spices that really make one dessert different from one another. The difference between a luxurious creamy coconut pie and a delectably naughty chocolate pie is vanilla versus cacao. The rest of the ingredients can easily be the same. However, use of coconut oil in coconut cream pie is much more essential than in a chocolate pie or vanilla pie, so it is not always just spices that make the difference.
Merry Raw Desserts!

When reading, the most incredible things I've ever learned came from stories. Stories are more memorable. They create images and time-lines in our minds. They give us all the background information that lead up to a great moment, a great realization, a great break-through.
In reality, we only truly grasp ("grok") something through personal experience. We can not add to our experience through reading dry data. But we really can and do add to our experience with stories. The more detailed, authentic, and dynamic the story, the more there is for us to learn from it. The more it resonates with us and touches us, the more we retain what we've learned.
It is because of this that I'm writing my own life as a series of autobiographical novels.
