Blogging Marathon# 48: Week 2/ Day 1
Theme: Kid’s Delight — Holiday Specials
Dish: Mango Nog
My theme for this week’s blogging marathon is ‘Kid Friendly Holiday specials‘. This is for Valli’s Kid’s Delight event being hosted this month by lovely Sandhya. For the first day, I have an alcohol free, kid friendly version of a holiday special drink, Eggnog.
Eggnog is a sweetened dairy based drink usually consumed during Thanksgiving and Christmas in Canada & US. It is traditionally made with milk and/ or cream, sugar and whipped eggs to give it a frothy texture. Brandy, rum or bourbon are often added. It is served with a sprinkling of ground cinnamon or nutmeg. It is also known as egg milk punch.
I’ve never tasted real eggnog because the presence of raw egg in it is not too appealing to me. But when I saw the recipe for this egg less, vegan Mango Nog on the back of Costco Connection cookbook, I knew I found something that both my kids and I would like.
The original recipe was made with Naked Mighty Mango drink which is thick and sweet. But I think any good quality mango juice or nectar can be used here. This is almost like a thick mango smoothie with spices and my kids really loved it.
