    I make a version of this, but instead of evaporated milk, I eliminate the ice cubes and use frozen banana slices to thicken it (also a good way to deal with over-ripe bananas). Gives you another serving of fruit and keeps the drink cold without diluting it. - 5/22/08

    Yum. I also recommend usuing frozen bananas (or even frozen pumpkin puree)..I hate how melted ice waters down a smoothie. I would also try using frozen berries in this (in place of some of the ice). Definitely would make this again! - 5/22/08

    What a great idea to use canned pumpkin in a protein shake! Like everyone else, I completely changed up your recipe, but I'll still credit you for the idea! :) I only used skim milk, not soy or evaporated, and unstead of splenda used eggnog flavored coffeemate coffee creamer. Thanks! - 10/24/07

    I simplified the recipe by skipping the evaporated milk. I doubled the pumpkin instead. I used 1% milk instead of soy and left the rest the same. was GREAT! My kids love it too! - 5/29/08

    I have had this for breakfast the last two days and recommend it. Something different - very filling - holds me until lunch. I used soy milk and silken tofu - no evaporated milk. - 5/24/08

    I just made this pumpkin shake recipe and it was very tasty. I used 1/3 cup Vanilla Activia in place of the evaporated milk and added a bit more soy milk for thinning. It blends up thick and filling !! Thanks for sharing - 9/21/08

    I have been opening canned pumpkin and adding fat free vanilla yogurt , protein powder and the 0 calorie sugar free carmel flavoring that I buy for coffee flavor at Sams Club. Yum. Eat it with a spoon, but it is great. I don't like to "drink" my calories - 10/20/07

    What a great protein shake concept! I only had skim milk and chocolate protein powder on hand, but that's okay because I love pumpkin pie on chocolate cookie/graham cracker crust so it worked out great! I've got me a new favorite fall protein shake :). Will try the original variation, too. - 11/2/07

    This didn't turn out for me. I omitted the ice cubes and the evaporated milk, and used 1-1/3 cups of vanilla soy milk and added ginger. But the result tasted like my protein powder, so I ended up tripling the pumpkin and adding more sweeteners. I think this was the fault of my protein powder. - 7/21/08

    Not rating this bc I haven't made it (yet). Is it possible to freeze the pumpkin in ice cube trays and then use in place of ice cubes? Something to consider/try. - 5/28/08

    Yum! Next time will try it with more pumpkin, maybe chocolate protein powder. It needed just a little more flavor, I think; it was good, but subtle... I wanted something with a bit more... something! But very good--and lots of great variations to try in these ratings! - 7/6/08
