Spread love and longevity amongst your family and friends this season with our spermidine-rich holiday recipes...


Serves 2

Eggnog is traditionally enjoyed during the holidays, and this alternative recipe is made with unsweetened almond milk and cashews and is free of dairy and refined sugar.

Cashews are high in protein and are a rich source of vitamin B and iron, selenium and zinc. They are also packed with anti-cancer compounds called proanthocyanidins. Cashews also have a lower fat content than most other nuts and contain a high amount of oleic acid, which is a heart healthy monounsaturated fat that is great for the cardiovascular system.


  • ⅓ cup raw cashews
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 pitted dates
  • 1 tsp vanilla (if desired)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ground cardamom
  • ¼ tsp ground turmeric (for color)
  • The contents of 1 Primeadine® capsule


Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until very smooth and frothy for about 3 minutes.

Pour into glasses and sprinkle cinnamon on top.

Serve immediately.
