  1. Fabulous! Great substitute for the Culver’s pumpkin shake that I love so much. I used pumpkin spice instead of all the different spices. Sprinkled spice on top too. Used pb instead of dates and doubled the amount of pumpkin. Didn’t have almond milk so I used water and turned out fabulous!!
  2. Good and healthy nice and smooth. Great for busy times when you don't have time for a sit down meal. You can use peanut butter in place of dates
  3. I hate to be the downer here but I found this very disappointing. I wanted something with a strong pumpkin flavor (like the one from Jamba) which I thought I could expect from this based on the title but this did not deliver. It tastes fine overall but I can barely taste the pumpkin in - Read more ...
  4. This has become one of my favorite protein shakes. I try to keep breakfast in a certain ratio of about 25% fat 50% carbs and 25% protein and this shake fits the bill very well. I do not add the dates to cut down on sugar and instead of using the recommended spices I use - Read more ...

So, once I used peanut butter instead of the powder but along with the dates. It was creamy and good. The second - Read more ...
  8. Just loved this. In the dairy section I found coconut milk. Thinking of DFIL I picked one up. DFIL is not allow much dairy and he is not allowed any almond milk. While it works the drink was great. Plan in to send a copy to my MIL over the weekend. Thank you Manella for - Read more ...
  9. Wow my daughter has a new favourite any time drink this is a delightful combination of flavours especially if you like the warm spices that the nutmeg cloves and cinnamon add we love this. Manella another hit!
  10. Absolutely excellent! Great way to start the morning. I make my own homemade pumpkin pie spice so I used it in place of the spices listed. Left out the vanilla since I had Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk. I didn't have any dates so I did the peanut butter sub that is listed (although less). At - Read more ...
