Eggless “Egg Nog” Lassi

Your belly will say, “Thank you,” when you complete your meal with Lassi, a yogurt-based drink that keeps your digestive fires blazing and your immune system strong. In the New Year, I will write more about Lassi, its medicine and its “varietals.”  Today, I wanted to share a new creation, eggless “Egg Nog Lassi,” in time for your holiday parties.

Seeking a Vegetarian response to Egg Nog, I stirred 1 cup of fresh Yogurt, made from raw milk given by grass fed cows (I like St. Benoit), together with 1 cup Water, 6 pitted Medjool Dates, 1 tablespoon Maple Syrup, 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract, three good shakes each of Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Clove powder, and a tiny dash of Sea Salt and fresh ground Black Pepper. Less water and more dates would make it a thicker blend. You could also add a few raw skinned almonds or cashews for a thicker consistency.

Put all this in the blender and mix it on High Speed until it is good and frothy, then serve it as an after dinner “digestif.” It is so delicious I think I’ll call it New Year’s Lassi next week, and keep on drinking it right into 2011! Let me know what you think.

Many Blessings of Joy and Peace to you and yours this Holiday Season.

  4. Can’t wait to try this! Egg nog was always a favorite part of the holiday season but since I no longer choose to have alcohol it is something I have missed. This is the perfect remedy for that craving when it hits and anytime for that matter! Thank you!!!
