Vegan 'Egg' Nog

A long while back, Vegetarian Times did a survey and asked its' readers what they most would like to have converted to vegan. And the #1 requested dish was egg nog. Who'd a thunk it? And yet, you can now purchase them right in your grocery store or make your own. And making your own is so simple that it is scary. So let's get down to business...shall we?

2-10.5 oz packages, silken tofu(soft)
16 0z milk alternative (pick which one you like)
1T+1t vanilla extract
1/4 cup sugar(I, myself would bump it up a wee bit for my next time out)
2T brown sugar
1/4t ground turmeric
1/2-1 cup brandy(optional)(may need more depending on the company you have)
Nutmeg, for garnish
In a blender of food processor, combine all ingredients:except for nutmeg.  Blend thoroughly, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides of the blender or processor. Chill and serve. And as always,!
