Spiced Cranberry Not-Eggnog: sample recipe from Vegan for the Holidays, by Zel Allen.
Quote from the cookbook: 'This unique vegan take on eggnog recipes unveils a tangy edge and an inviting hue of powder-puff pink, thanks to the cranberries.'
We thought the color was more hot pink, crossed with cinnamon and cream, but we all agreed that this Spiced Cranberry Nog recipe is very tasty. I would never have thought to achieve such deliciousness with cranberries and soy milk!

If you can't get fresh cranberries and just happen to have frozen cranberries on hand, we suspect those would work just fine in this recipe.
Same goes for the maple syrup. I used 1/2 cup agave syrup instead. You could also use any kind of granulated sugar.
The recipe comes out very sweet, so feel free to reduce the amount of sweetener by up to 1/2 for a tarter result, or to use stevia instead.
For a thicker nog, try using soy creamer instead of soy milk.
The xanthan or guar gum thickens and stabilizes the mixture. Leave it out if you don't have it or it's not easy to get.
