    Tips
    1. *Solids can be dried out in the oven at a low temperature (225° F) and used as almond flour in baking recipes.
    2. **You can hold off on the rum extract if you think the kids won’t like it, and then add a few drops to your individual glass of eggnog.
    3. Vegan eggnog can be stored in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.
