Almond nog blancmange

There are some foodw that have always seemed mysterious to me. Egg nog is one of them.

I never had as it as an omnivore or as a vegetarian, but for some reason I had a hunger for egg nog this year. Nothing else would do - I wanted something vegan and egg noggy. Granted it would have helped if I'd have known what egg nog was, or what it had in it, or even what it should have tasted like.

I came up with this, minus the agar agar, as a drink and I was rather fond of it. Then I wondered what would happen if I turned it into a blancmange - another foodstuff that hold some sway over my imagination.

Here's what happened...

Almond nog blancmange


300mls of almond and hazelnut flavour rice milk
3g of agar agar powder
25mls of Amaretto or more to taste
A few drops of vanilla extract
Dessertspoon of maple syrup or more to taste
Grating of nutmeg
Pinch of cinnamon

How you do it

Heat the milk gently with the agar agar for five to 10 minutes, until the agar agar powder has dissolved.

Stir in the rest of the ingredients.

Once mixed, pour into a jelly mould and leave to set, in the fridge or not - either way it'll firm up quite quickly.


  1. Screamingly loks delicious! It also makes me want French toast for some reason. The two together would be heaven. :)
