    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 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

    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

    I didn't rate this recipe b/c I didn't want to skew the ratings. Don't make this w/ rice milk. I did and it wasn't that good. I didn't have either soy mile or evap. milk on hand so I just used what I had. I'll try this recipe again with soy & evap. milks to see if I like it better that way. - 2/16/08

    I made this last night and loved it!!! I used the vanilla soy milk and 1/2 a cup of pumpkin..I didnt have the protein to add but will be shopping for that in the near future..I froze the soy milk rather than using the ice cubes so it wouldnt dilute the flavor..It was very Yummy!!!

    I changed it a little too. I used vanilla fat/sugar free yogurt and only .5 cup of soy milk. I only used 1 pkt of the Splenda Flavor Blends for coffee in French Vanilla and no protein powder. I'm going to see if my son likes it. It would be way better as an after school snack then what he has. - 9/5/07

  • I wanted to love it, but I don't. I made it strictly according to the recipe the first time and it came out way too liquidy. The next time I cut the soy milk down to 1/3 cup and added two cups ice to get more of a smoothie consistency. I normally love pumpkin but I don't personally love this drink. - 5/30/13

  • Yum! I added ginger and cloves, subbed skim for evaporated milk and I didn't have protein powder so added plain Greek yogurt. I also used unsweetened coconut milk instead of soy. I'll have to get the protein powder and soy milk next time. My version has less protein, but still delicious. Thanks! - 2/12/13

  • Yum! The carbs are high for a diabetic, and I use Splenda and skim milk, so that should take them below 20, I would think. Does anyone know, say one of our dieticians? But it does offer more than choc, strawbettry of vanilla commercial brands. And what a wakeup!!! - 2/3/11

  • What a great idea, my whole family loved this. I have made it a couple times since and use almond milk rather than dairy, and no sweetener, as my protein powder has its own.

    I even modified it for a post workout drink (scoop of pumpkin and scoop of protein powder, spice and water. Yum. - 11/2/10
