Wait, vegan nog?
That’s a thing?
I was delighted to find vegan eggnog in my local Whole Foods last year.
The one thing on my mind before trying them was, “are they good?”
Well, the brands are pretty well-known and haven’t failed me yet, so I figured that they were probably good.
Eggnog was a tough thing for me to give up. Like 99% of people, I only have eggnog during the holidays, and my mom would always get a carton for me and my dad (she personally hates it). We would split it throughout the year, and was such a delicious treat that I could not get enough of.
I hoped that vegan nog would could provide me with the same satisfaction….
And well, I thought I would tell you some of my thoughts on the 3 vegan nogs I have found on the market. I haven’t made homemade eggnog yet…maybe next year. Until then, let’s see if any of these store-bought options pass the test!
1. Silk Nog
This one is good, but does not taste exactly like eggnog. My boyfriend actually prefers this flavor because it has a somewhat different flavor from authentic eggnog. If you are not a huge fan of nog, you might like this. It does not taste so different that I can’t see what they are trying to imitate, but I would not say that the flavor is spot-on.
2. So Delicious Holiday Nog
Ok, this one actually tastes just like eggnog, like it kinda creeps me out. It has the thickness, sweetness, and overall flavor of eggnog. Once again, So Delicious just knocks it out of the park.
3. Almond Breeze: Vanilla Chai
The Almond Breeze is a bit of an outlier. I did not find the original nog, so I settled for a vanilla chai spice, meaning that this one tastes a bit different than the other two. I did take that into account. In terms of tasting what it is supposed to, it does! I can taste the vanilla, and I taste the chai, and it has the consistency of eggnog. Not my favorite flavor, but vanilla chai lovers might enjoy it.
So Delicious Holiday Nog.
If you are a vegan, and a total eggnog lover, look no further! If you haven’t tried this yet, why not? Go to your local store and grab it now because this is the best on the market!
No, I am not being paid to say this….So Delicious has no clue who I am. I am just a genuine fan of their products, and the holiday nog is no exception. I am very impressed, and until I try and make something better, I will stick with So Delicious from here on out.
You should try all of these if you are curious. I think each of them are good and could be enjoyed by anyone! Sure, I may have my favorite, but you might try the Silk or Almond Breeze brand and absolutely love them, so take my opinion as that-an opinion.
With that said, as a die-hard nog lover, I love So Delicious’s dairy-free take. I can’t even tell that it is vegan.
Do you have a favorite vegan eggnog? Have you ever tried making your own?
I want to know your thoughts! Any better ones on the market that I need to try?
Let me know!
