Dairy-Free and Vegan EggnogsAlisa Fleming ~ Did you know that there are almost more brands of Dairy-Free and Vegan Eggnog on the market than dairy-filled ones? How cool is that? In stores like Whole Foods, non-dairy nog actually dominates the shelves, but have no fear, you can find many of these delights at “regular” grocery stores, too. The shelf-stable ones (which I will note) can even be purchased online.

Unfortunately for eggnog traditionalists and lactose intolerant dairy-free consumers who are not vegan, the market currently lacks eggnogs that are simply dairy-free (I haven’t found any as of yet, anyway). In other words, all of the dairy-free “egg” nogs are also egg-free and vegan. This doesn’t make them any less delicious, but it does put them an extra degree of separation away from the traditional.

The creamy dairy-free holiday beverages don’t stop [not-so-traditional] eggnog either. I’ve included some other seasonal sips below that you might enjoy, too. That all said, here are some nog-a-licious dairy-free AND vegan options …

Vegan Eggnogs:

Silk Nog by Silk Soymilk (refrigerated) – The brand that started the vegan nog tradition.

Silk Soy Eggnog - Vegan, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free Gluten-Free

  

Holly Nog by Vitasoy (shelf-stable) – They don’t heavily promote it on their website like the others, but trust me, it’s out there in stores!

Earth Balance Organic Soy Nog (refrigerated) – Earth Balance upped the nog ante in 2011 with an organic soy-based version.

Nog Coconut Milk by So Delicious (refrigerated) – Yes, dairy-free, soy-free coconut-based nog does exist!

Rice Nog by Rice Dream (shelf-stable) – Another tasty soy-free (and nut-free) option. They don’t list it on their website (at last check), but it is sold in many stores and online.

Rice Dream Rice Nog - Vegan, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free

To note, I have trialed two of the above brands, both very different from one another. You can see my review here: Comparison of Rice Nog and Silk Nog.
