This soup is the bomb! It was a bit too sweet for me with the sweetened milk and ripe banana. Next time I will use a less ripe banana. Also Step #5 is unnecessary because you already process the soup to be smooth in Step #3.

Used fresh cooked pumpkin that I had left over from night before, and didn't have allspice, but made recipe otherwise unchanged. DH is a non-banana man, and found the banana taste a bit much, I think next time I'd also enjoy it more with half as much banana. A delicious recipe, definite comfort food. Imagine being able to put condensed milk in your soup!! Yum.
