Traditional 'eggnog' evolved somewhere between Britain and the US, and look, it's an odd drink by any measure. But remove the actual eggs and dairy cream, and it's easier to get your head around ... a thick, sweet, creamy spiced drink to complement all your Chrissy festivities!
*Variation: Custard powder is often vegan by default — just check the label to be sure. And we haven’t tried it ’cause we can’t get it in Australia, but our American friends should try this recipe using pudding mix!
