All the world is nuts about

Here's the ideal punch bowl beverage to serve your guests. It's creamy, it's rich, it's gustatorial! Enjoy!
PUMPKIN APPLE NOG
- Combine all ingredients in a blender. Process on medium speed until smooth, scraping down sides to incorporate all the flavors.
- Pour into individual old-fashioned glasses or into a glass punch bowl.
- Sprinkle lightly with ground nutmeg and serve.
- If you prefer to add spirits, either brandy or rum make an excellent choice. Makes 2 to 3 servings.
- To prepare in quantity, it will be necessary to make this recipe in several batches. Unfortunately the blender is not large enough to prepare even a double recipe. However, it's quick and easy.
*I prefer the unsweetened soy milk for its thick creamy richness.
The recipe will still work with a sweetened soy milk.

- Combine in a bowl.
- Add Mandarin oranges and the juice, toasted pecans, and a delicate sprinkle of nutmeg.
- Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint. Serves 6.
