Vanilla Nut Nog (Raw Foods)

Total Time

From Raw Food Celebrations - Party Menus for Every Occasion by Nomi Shannon and Sheryl Duruz. It's due back to the library tomorrow and this looks good! (It says to soak the vanilla extract, but I think that may be a mistake. I will try adding it later.) Cooking time is soaking time.


  1. Soak Brazil nuts in water to cover 8-12 hours.
  2. In separate bowl, soak dates and vanill beans (or extract) together in water to cover 8-12 hours.
  3. Drain Brazil nuts, rinse, and drain again.
  4. Remove dates and vanilla from water and add enough more water to equal 10 cups.
  5. Pour water into blender, add nuts, and process til smooth.
  6. Add dates, vanilla, and cinnamon to blender and process til smooth, scraping down the sides occasionally with a spatula.
  7. The mixture will be thick. If you want it thinner, add more water and process again.
  8. Taste and add more dates, vanilla, or cinnamon if desired and blend again til smooth.
  9. Place a nut milk bag in a large bowl, pour in the nog in batches and gently squeeze out the liquid. Pour into clear cups and dust with nutmeg.
  10. NOTE: if you don't have a high-speed blender, make the nog in small batches. Here is the ratio for 1-2 servings:.
  11. 1/2 c Brazil nuts (soaked 8-12 hours).
  12. 4 pitted Medjool dates AND.
  13. 1/2 vanilla bean or 1 tsp extract(soaked with dates 8-12 hours).
  14. a pinch of cinnamon.
  15. enough water added to the date soaking water to equal 1 cup.

This was excellent! Like Sharon I used the 1-2 serving option. Never tried nut milk from brazil nuts before, but will do this more often now. This nut rog is wonderfully creamy, with a velvety sweetness from the dates and the vanilla. Thanks for posting!! Made for Sweet Traditions Tag Game November 2009.

This was different and good! I used date pieces and estimated how many made a date. I used the 1-2 serving directions. Thank you for a unique and tasty drink! Made for Vegetarian Swap-May 2009.
