Drink and be merry with a Japanese Twist Egg Nog Latte.
This recipe makes a tasty Eggnog Latte that is Vegan friendly. Initially the sound of tofu in a drink did not sound appetising however I can confirm now I have had it tastes nothing like you would imagine it to. It is delicious.
In addition to being Vegan, this recipe is less calorific compared to traditional recipes.
This recipe makes about 4 small glasses.
