I've been playing around with nog trying to come up with something close to the flavor of the Silk Nog product. I'm having issues with a bitter taste, so I was thinking that I was using too much of something - - probably vanilla or nutmeg. Anyone have any thoughts? Any recipe you know about that comes close so I can stop my mad (and yucky) experiments?

I would guess the bitter taste could be caused by nutmeg? how fresh is the nutmeg you're using?

Hmmm. I guess the nutmeg is a few months old. I bought it ground because I was tired of grating my own. I still have some whole, but it's much older.

I have still not found the culprit for the bad taste. I have removed the nutmeg and reduced the vanilla extract.

I am using dates as part of the sweetener, could that be it? I don't really think so, but I'm wasting lots of ingredients here. I'm also wondering if the cinnamon could cause bitterness if there's too much.

Any ideas?

What counteracts bitter?

Have you tasted all your ingredients separately? Are you using nuts that could possibly be rancid?

I'm not using nuts, but I am using flax meal. Perhaps that is the problem. I was going for an allergy free recipe. I guess I'm back to the drawing board. Perhaps I'll try using chia.

I appreciate all your thoughts! If I come up with something that tastes good, I'll post it.

Isa has a recipe for nog. I'm afraid I've never made it, or had any sort of nog, so I don't know how similar to the Silk one it is. She said you can replace the almond milk with whatever plant milk you like to work around allergies.
