I accidentally discovered this recipe the first time I tried to make instant pudding for my dairy-allergic daughter: Not realizing that instant pudding requires the calcium in milk to thicken and set, I had tried making vanilla pudding using our favorite totally non-dairy creamer. I wound up with a really thick, smooth, vanilla-shake-like concoction instead, and when I added nutmeg to it, it tasted like the creamiest, most delicious egg nog I ever tasted -- without the eggs or the cholesterol! (You can even make it with fat-free non-dairy creamer if you're watching calories.)
So the Eggless Nog Recipe is as follows:
1 pt. Silk Creamer (or your favorite non-dairy milk substitute)
2 cups soy milk
2 lg. packages instant vanilla pudding*
Nutmeg to taste
Mix in blender and enjoy!
*I use Jello instant pudding: it contains no dairy whatsoever, and I believe it is gluten-free as well.
