Healthy Holiday “Egg Nog” Smoothie

Healthy Holiday “Egg Nog” Smoothie

There is nothing like a delicious cup of egg nog to ring in the holidays. Unfortunately, it is difficult to stop at just a small portion, and all of that sugar with heavy cream won’t help your waistline. In fact, I love egg nog so much that I vowed to create the perfect smoothie that tastes just like egg nog, without the unhealthy ingredients and side effects.


Technically this recipe is not a true egg nog as it does not contain eggs. I still get a little worried about feeding uncooked eggs to my children and this is definitely a recipe to share. This is also a great recipe for those with sensitive tummies as it is dairy-free.



  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1 cup unsweetened milk alternative (coconut, cashew, or hazelnut work well in this recipe)
  • 1 tablespoon raw local honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Dash of almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 shot of rum (completely optional!)



Place frozen bananas in a blender. It is very important that the bananas you use are frozen as they will create a custard-like consistency, mimicking the thickness of an egg nog. Add in your cup of milk alternative. Blend on high. Add in the remaining ingredients. Blend on low. Pour and serve!


‘Tis the season.


Be well,
