Indulge in Vitasave.ca’s Holiday “Nog” - Easy, Healthy, Vegan Recipe
It's hard to resist the temptation of smooth, creamy eggnog. The rich flavour embodies the holidays, and can be the perfect indulgence during this festive season. Although we all like to think calories don’t exist during the month of December, it is no secret that traditional eggnog is chalked full of added sugar and fat.
Next time you are craving this holiday treat, mix up vitasave.ca's easy, healthy, and vegan Nog. Then mix into your morning coffee, blend into a satisfying, nutritious smoothie, or infuse into your warming bowl of oatmeal.
