You can vary this recipe any way you’d like. Use flavored soy milks or flavored almond milks. You’ll need less sugar if using the flavored varieties. If using a vanilla flavored milk, use less vanilla. Vary your spices: Add ginger, cinnamon, cloves, whatever you like.
If you’d like the nog thinner, then add more milk or less pumpkin.
