Ingenious. I don't know why I haven't thought of it before. It is a quick, energizing, and delicious breakfast. There is so much room for variation. I recommend cloves.

Really good! I used about a half cup of vanilla ice cream, a cup of milk and 4 tsp. of sugar and no vanilla. It took me a couple sips to know if I liked it or not. By the end I was irritating DH by slurping every last drop from the bottom of my glass with my straw. If you like pumpkin, you'll really like this. Thank you for posting!

I thought this was really refreshing and it satisfied my ice-cream craving. I took the advice of a couple other reviewers and add ice before blending, to thicken it up. I used Torani's sugar-free French Vanilla syrup (the type for coffee) instead of Splenda and vanilla. I will add nutmeg next time, also. Thanks for this keeper.

I loved it! A healthy way to incorporate more pumpkin in the diet without a lot of sugar. I liked it but it did have a little of an aftertaste...I will use clove and nutmeg as well as cinnamon next time. I think freezing the milk in cubes or using nonfat dry milk with ice cubes might make it thicker..although I didn't mind that it wasn't really thick. I put the second serving that I wasn't using in the freezer to make "ice cream". I think it will be yummy!

Tasted awesome, but didn't thicken as much as I hoped. Other than that, great recipe! Thanks for posting it!

This was sooo good. I only used 6 tsp. of sugar and it was still yummy. I may try less sugar next time to make it even healthier. Thank you for this recipe!

I made this morning for myself. I threw in a handful of ice cubes and a dash of allspice and cloves. I used Splenda as well. It tasted like pumpkin pie...just needed a big fat dollop of whipped cream (which I didnt have...but next time!!) I am off to buy more pumpkin while its on sale so I can make it again tomorrow. Thanks a bunch

This was a really creative and new idea! It was a little bland at first, so I added some honey, ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon, afterward it was so spicy and good!

5 starts for creativity! Pretty good - My husband said not bad after he made jokes about it. I added fresh ground nutmeg / topped with whipped cream and sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top:-)

This is an AWESOME drink!! I added extra cinnamon, nutmeg, and left out the vanilla extract. In addition, I used a few handfuls of ice cubes and made this a pumpkin pie smoothie! I also used organic cane sugar and organic canned pumpkin. Talk about YUMMY!! It really hit the spot on a 100degree Texas day and was quite refreshing! Next time, I'm topping mine with cool whip!! Again, this is AWESOME!!
