This stuff really is so delicious. If you love eggnog but you cant have dairy like me, youre going to want to pick some of this SO Delicious Coconut Milk Nog up. To me, it doesnt taste like it has any obvious coconut flavor in it, despite being coconut milk-based. It just tastes like regular eggnog to me.
Theres less fat and protein in this version of eggnog than there is in the regular kind, so if you like to cook with it, keep in mind that it may react differently. My husband likes to make eggnog bread and its incredible, but he claims this wont work. Im not sure what the sugar contents like in regular eggnog, but this has 14 g per cup.
With normal eggnog, I would normally cut it about half and half with regular milk. If youre sensitive to dairy, thats not an option and Im not sure how cutting this with plain coconut or almond milk would taste. I drank it straight and it was fine, but it was a little thick and sweet for my preferences.
Im still not exactly going to let it go to waste. Its still-delicious! I enjoy adding it to my coffee in the mornings for something a little different, since flavored creamers and syrups arent that good to me anymore and half and half isnt an option. I usually drink black coffee, but I like to mix it up with this.
I found my carton at Whole Foods for around $4.00, and my sister found some at Kroger recently. It should be in the non-dairy section near the milk and refrigerated coffee creamers. You can also check the refrigerated health food section, especially in Kroger. Thats where I find most of the SO Delicious brand.
