I’m a sucker for any kind of milk alternative. Soy, almond, coconut, rice, flax, hemp, all delicious, loaded with goodness and completely animal-free. So, you can understand the paralyzing joy I felt when I discovered that I could chug down my winter favorite without the guilt of a whopping 9 grams of fat per serving and still maintain an eco-friendliness during holiday gluttony. Enter, RICE NOG!
There are a number of non-dairy holiday beverages on the shelves right now, but my all-time favorite has to be Rice Dream’s nog. It’s of a much thinner consistency than normal thick egg nog, but that just allows you keep inhaling that incredible Christmas-time flavor without feeling stuffed before you could even get to the pie. Your older relatives will also be so turned off by your “weirdo, hippy-dippy food” that you can keep the carton all to yourself.
Even better, Whole Foods typically has a 2 for $4 special on these. Stock up for when you feel the need for a Christmas in July.
