This gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, and sugar-free version of the classic eggnog is healthy and delicious. The main ingredient in this recipe is black sesame seed milk, which is richer in calcium than cow’s milk.
It also features turmeric – a cancer fighting spice, which enhances immune system activity – as well as cashews, which are well endowed with anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and tumor annihilating flavonols. Cashews boost your metabolism and have a high protein and magnesium content providing good bowel health, good sleep, and strong bones!
I’ve also added both nutmeg and Ceylon cinnamon as they have both been shown to have numerous anticancer capabilities… and they add that perfect holiday taste.
Not all cinnamon has the cancer fighting quality we need, so be aware when shopping for this ingredient. What you find in your typical store is a cheaper variety known as Cassia cinnamon, or Chinese cinnamon. Cassia cinnamon isn’t quite as potent or medicinally effective as Ceylon cinnamon (known as the “true” cinnamon).
Overall, this delicious holiday nog is a treat to enjoy year round… but especially during the holidays. Enjoy!
