Reading time 1 Minute

Raise a glass of festive cheer with this modern take on a traditional glass of eggnog

The creamy, brandy-based drink is not to everyone’s taste, but this version of the festive classic adds chai tea, coconut and almond milk. You’ve simply got to give it a try!
  • 250ml coconut milk
  • 500ml almond milk
  • 80ml maple syrup
  • 3 teabags of chai tea (or 2 tsp of chai spice mix in a spice bag)
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 egg yolks
  • For the topping:
  • 200g whipped cream
  • Piece of dark chocolate, grated
  • 1 shot of rum or brandy per glass (optional)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon, freshly grated
  1. Put all the ingredients, except for the egg yolks into a saucepan and warm through slowly. Do not boil! 
  2.  Leave to infuse for five minutes. 
  3. Mix the egg yolks in a bowl and add some warm almond milk then pour it into the saucepan and heat everything up again, slowly, stirring constantly. 
  4.  Remove the tea bags/spice sachets from the pan. 
  5.  Pour a shot of brandy into each glass, divide the mixture equally, top with whipped cream and a fresh grating of cinnamon and chocolate.
