Instead of counterfeit eggnog with booze this holiday season, have a health seeker’s Banana Nutnog without compunction!

Banana Eggnog

From The Live Food Factor (recipe by Victoria Bidwell)


3 large bananas at room temperature

3 rounded T almond butter

1/8 t nutmeg (optional)

½ t fresh vanilla bean paste scrapings

1/8 t cinnamon (optional)

2 cups boiling water


Blend until smooth and warm. Experiment with amount of liquid and number of bananas used to get the thickness you most enjoy. Stir in a handful of chopped almonds. Serve with a spoon, sit by an open fire, and enjoy.
