What is in plant-based matcha eggnog?
Here’s everything you’ll need to make this festive drink!
- Coconut milk: Use full-fat coconut milk for a rich, creamy texture. Be sure to choose a brand that is good quality and you like the taste of.
- Cashew milk: We love the flavor and texture this particular non-dairy milk lends to this drink. However, you may also use another non-dairy milk of your choice as a substitute.
- Brown sugar: Adds sweetness and deepens the flavor. You can use light or dark brown sugar.
- Maple syrup: Use pure maple syrup for best flavor! This ingredient adds hints of caramel and vanilla that pair perfectly with the spices.
- Cinnamon, nutmeg, and cardamom: These three spices are so warming and give this matcha eggnog that signature holiday flavor.
- Vanilla extract: Another one of the main flavors.
- Matcha Latte Mix: Our lightly sweetened matcha latte mix adds a sweet matcha flavor for a unique take on this traditional favorite!
