Discover the Most Delicious Dairy-Free Eggnog Recipes & Ideas

Creative dairy-free eggnog ideas


The holiday season is here, so it's time to whip up some tasty treats and get into the festive spirit.

If you’re looking for a dairy-free eggnog solution this Christmas, Elmhurst has you covered with our delicious, rich and creamy OatNog

And while our OatNog is a limited-edition seasonal favorite, there's nothing to stop you from stocking up before the holidays if, like us, you enjoy drinking eggnog or creating eggnog-inspired recipes all year.

So, with that in mind, we won't keep you any longer. Here are 6 of our favorite dairy-free eggnog recipes that taste great when you use our OatNog.

1. OatNog Hot Chocolate

Our Dairy-Free Homemade Double Hot Chocolate is a fantastic-tasting drink that you can enjoy all year. And during the holiday season, all you need to do is add some different spices or flavors to bring a festive twist to this comforting beverage.

We love it with our OatNog, and we're sure you will, too!

Our OatNog steams brilliantly – you’ll barely notice the difference between this and our other Barista Edition Plant Milks – so you can stir up an indulgent Christmas treat in no time.

2. Classic Boozy Nog

Speaking of dairy-free eggnog ideas, we've got one that doesn't require any swapping of ingredients.

Our seasonal OatNog inspired our Classic Boozy Nog recipe and combines this tasty Plant Milk with your favorite festive booze, spices, and garnishes to give you the perfect seasonal cocktail.

Serve it to guests on arrival at your festive parties or – if you’re brave enough – leave it in a punch bowl for everyone to help themselves.

3. Vegan Gluten-Free Waffles

The delicious flavors of our seasonal OatNog don't need to be kept just for dairy-free eggnog drinks. It's a fantastic substitute for our Plant Milks in many of our favorite dishes, too, especially breakfasts.

That includes our Vegan Gluten-Free Waffles, a beautiful breakfast recipe to treat yourself or the children on any morning of the year. Our OatNog adds an extra touch of festive warmth that feels like a hug on a cold winter morning, somehow making this dish even more welcoming and cozy.

4. OatNog French Toast Bake

If you’re looking for the perfect addition to any breakfast or brunch during the holidays, our OatNog French Toast Bake is just what you need. It’s easy to make and feels like an extra special treat for you and your family to enjoy!

If you’re making this the morning of, you'll need just over an hour. But if you want to save a little time this recipe actually turns out even better if you prep everything the night before so everything really has a chance to soak up all that delicious flavor.

Just pop it in the oven, and soon your home will be filled with the most amazing smell drawing your family right to the kitchen!

5. Vegan Baked Berry Oatmeal

If you want to use our OatNog in a recipe you can prep the night before, our Vegan Baked Berry Oatmeal is a healthy, hearty breakfast that becomes even better with a seasonal twist.

Instead of using our Unsweetened Almond Milk, try this recipe with our OatNog, and play around with the addition of other festive spices – cinnamon is already in there – to help bring your breakfast bowl to life.

And why not enjoy a creamy glass of our OatNog on the side?

6. Drink it Straight!

Okay, this isn't a recipe idea, but we can't talk about our OatNog without reminding you that it tastes great as a standalone drink.

Another great way to enjoy it is as a substitute for your usual dairy-free creamer or milk in your coffee.
