Recipe type: Beverages
Cuisine: Vegan, Gluten-Free
Serves: 5 cups
Ingredients
  • 3 cups of unsweetened cashew milk, homemade or store bought ( I use Silk Cashew Milk)
  • 1 14oz can of coconut milk
  • 3 Medjool dates *See Notes
  • 6 tablespoons maple syrup
  • ¼ - ½ cup of rum, preferably spiced rum **See Notes
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, plus extra for serving
  • Ice for serving
Instructions
  1. Place all the ingredients in a high speed blender and blend on high until completely smooth.
  2. Transfer to a pitcher or carafe and refrigerate until completely chilled, about 3-4 hours.
  3. Serve over ice with a sprinkling of freshly grated nutmeg.
Notes
*If your dates are on the drier side (or if you don't have a high speed blender) you can make them easier to blend by soaking them in hot water for about 20 minutes.
**The amount of rum will really depend on your tastes. I find 6 tablespoons to be perfect for my taste. There is enough for you to notice that its an alcoholic beverage but not enough for an unpleasant burn on the way down or to take away from the other flavors.
