Naturopathic Eggnog: Dairy-Free, Egg-White-Free, Sugar-Free, Rich, and Delicious

Eggnog at ChristmasTis the Season!

This recipe has been featured on in the past, but it’s such a goodie, that we can’t help but share it again!

If you’re hoping to make some festive treats this year then you’ll love this recipe for Naturopathic Eggnog.

It’s free from common allergens like dairy and egg-whites plus it’s rich with coconutty flavour, and raw.

For those of you who are not usually fans of eggnog, please try this! The combination of ingredients is delicious. And please let us know what you think.

(Oh, and we’ll leave the addition of rum up to you!)

Ingredients (Serves 6)
4 cups full fat coconut milk
2 cups vanilla almond milk (or vanilla rice milk)
6 egg yolks
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon, ground

1 tsp nutmeg, ground or freshly grated
Optional: rum, 1/4 cup or more

In a Vitamix or high powered blender, combine all ingredients.
Blend until yolks are well pureed.
Serve chilled with a sprinkling of more fresh nutmeg.
Whisk the rum in, just before serving.

Enjoy!! Happy holidays to you and your family!

Love from all of us at Pacifica Naturopathic Clinic

Dr Nina is Expecting!

Many of you have noticed by now that Dr Lange is having a baby!

Dr Lange’s new baby is due on December 24th. We are all tickled pink (or blue!) and excitedly awaiting the arrival of this cute new addition to our PNC team.

It is with great pleasure and confidence that Dr Lange and Pacifica Naturopathic Clinic  welcome Dr Melanie DesChatelets who will be covering for the maternity leave as of mid December.

Dr DesChatelets has been practicing in her own busy family practice since 2010 and is looking forward to being available at Pacifica to allow for your continued naturopathic care during her locum here. Dr Deschatelats speaks English as well as French and is a bright, warm, supportive, and incredibly knowledgeable family naturopathic physician.

Please come in and meet Dr Deschatelats, get your winter immune boost vitamin injection and continue to come in for your followup appointments, acupuncture, injections, or for any acute issues that come up.  She will also be available to see any new patients that you may want to refer to the clinic to get their Naturopathic care started. She will take great care of you.  You can continue to pick up your supplements and book appointments by calling Gill as needed.
