Low-Sodium Egg Nog

Warning: There is avocado in this recipe.

And this is not a warning to turn around and run away from this egg nog. This is a warning that socks will be blown straight off by the creamy lusciousness that is this sodium-friendly drink.

The all-natural, gluten, vegan, low-sodium wizardry comes from the bloggers at Cocomama and the only ingredients I left out were the banana (cause I didn’t have one) and the liquor (because it was 10am). But you can definitely make this drink as is. And how’s that for a Christmas miracle?

Give it a literal whirl tonight, tomorrow, anytime to curb the rich cravings of traditional eggnog without all the sugar and sodium.

And I can confirm, with my own gazillion tastebuds, that this is a total crowd pleaser.

Bottoms up. Drink on.

Faux-nog Eggnog from Cocomama

  • ¾ tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp cloves

Place all ingredients in blender and mix on high until smooth (about 2 minutes). Depending on the strength and speed of your blender, you may need to mix in frozen items one at a time with partial liquid. Then add remaining liquid,
