An excellent warming drink for the winter. This drink replaces any egg nog! This recipe is from David Wolfe's book "The Sunfood Diet Success System".

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix and blend with distilled water.
  2. Almond milk is best when almonds and dates are mixed in a 8:1 ratio.

Good recipe which works well. Unclear how much water should be added which is why it doesn't get the additional star [and I have asked!]. Dates are a good addition using their natural sweetness instead of processed sugar.

This is pretty good but I was also unclear on a couple aspects of the recipe. I used 1 mugs worth of previously made homemade almond milk and wizzed in 1 Parnoosh, soft Iranian date. I added maybe 1/4 tsp cinnamon and two shakes allspice to substitute in for nutmeg, as I do not consume intoxicants. I then heated it up in a pan. I felt the need for more sweetness so I added some date molasses (dibis tamar, an Iraqi ingredient found in some Middle Eastern stores, also may be found in health food stores)
