1 frozen over-ripe banana (between 3.5 and 4.5 oz) (NOTE 1)
1 cup hazelnut milk (NOTE 2)
1/4 to 1/3 cup fresh squeezed orange juice (use juice oranges)
1 tablespoon agave syrup (if needed)
1/2 inch (or more) length of vanilla bean
Blend the vanilla bean with the hazelnut milk.
Add the frozen banana and blend.
Add the orange juice and blend.
Pour into a glass and sprinkle nutmeg on top.
Yields 1.5 cups nog (serves 1-2).
If you are going to add rum, I recommend Captain Morgan
(the least expensive Captain Morgan has the better taste) or Admiral Nelson's Coconut Caribbean Rum
You need to plan for this in advance. I wait until the banana has significantly more brown speckle than yellow, then cut it into 4 sections and place it in a plastic container in the freezer.
NOTE 2: Pacific foods
makes a nice hazelnut "milk". If you are making your own, use roasted hazelnuts for the right taste. In a pinch, a cup of water plus 2 tablespoons of roasted hazelnut butter will do.
