Silk Nog is a Seasonal Dairy-Free Classic for the Holidays

5

Long ago, Silk had a few holiday beverages, including those ever-so-popular Pumpkin Spice and Mint Chocolate flavors. They’ve also tinkered around with Almond Milk Nog. But in recent years, they scaled back their seasonal offerings to focus solely on Silk Holiday Nog.

I think it could have been a good move, since Silk Holiday Nog really is a classic. It’s a sweet soymilk-based nog that’s dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, and made with non-GMO whole soybeans. It also has a respectable amount of sweetener (just 11 grams of sugars per dessert-like cup), making it a great seasonal treat for many. And although their packaging changes periodically, Silk Holiday Nog looks wonderfully sweet and lightly creamy like this, year after year …

Tasting Notes & Information for Silk Holiday Nog

I let two friends who can drink traditional dairy eggnog weigh in first. Caroline immediately proclaimed, “it tastes like Christmas!” Raechelle said, “this tastes the most like eggnog that I would buy at the store … a little too sweet, but good.” Finally, I poured myself a glass and enjoyed a sip. I concurred with both of them.

Silk Holiday Nog is slightly thinner than I expected, more like a 2% milk than a light cream, but still full-bodied and rich enough to call an indulgence. The flavor is sweet with a definite “nog” vibe that made me think of baking cookies while the snow falls outside.

Good lower sugar egg nog alternative

I think Southern Comfort (SC) is the eggnog gold standard. But at 29 carbs and 23 sugars it is not Keto friendly to consume often during the holidays. Silk nog is much thinner than SC and, while a good tasting drink, does not taste like SC. (I find it much more like Hood Holiday nog). However given the 12 grams of sugar in 4 oz, I find it a viable substitute for sipping on a regular basis during the holidays.

The 2020 run of Silk Nog is not the same as other years. The taste is off and the texture is thinner. After years of great flavor, this years is just like the overall 2020 year. I have submitted a review of the Silk Nog to the MFR as well. Very disappointed.

Our favorite nog

If soy isn’t a problem for you, then I think you will find Silk’s Nog seasonal beverage delightful. Made with whole, non-GMO soybeans, it has a delightfully sweet flavor that tasted more like dairy-based “nog” than most other dairy-free brands. But, it’s far lower in fat and even has less sugars than traditional eggnog. And though we sampled this beverage before the holidays kicked into full swing, it reminded all of our tasters of Christmas, cookie baking, and festivities.

  1. This is my favorite beverage of all time! I’m pretty sure I’m our county’s #1 consumer of Silk Nog lol. Next time at the only store I know carries it, I’m going to stock up on whatever is left in the case. Awesome blossom 😀

  2. This egg nog was extremely hard to find at Christmas time. I was only able to find one. Publix in Florida has it now but I can not find it anywhere in the Boston area. Seeing how popular it was could you please stock them all year? I’m sure it would sell out everytime. Love to put it in my coffee!

  3. I’m glad they changed the name from Soy Nog to Silk Holiday Nog. That being said, I LOVE it!! I can’t believe that it doesn’t have any eggs in it, let alone no “dairy” either. And it isn’t really thick like regular eggnog, which means that I don’t have to thin it down ( I used to mix regular milk in my full flavored eggnog to thin it down). This is awesome stuff!!

    My husband found the soy nog for me last year. It is pretty good. I bought some again this year. I am hoping that the supply doesn’t run out.
