    Tried this recipe out on two teenage girls. They loved it! I did use the chocolate and painted "Boo" and a pumpkin face on the inside of the glass. Thanks for a healthy fun Halloween treat. - 10/31/09

  • Haven't made this exact one, very cute. But Ive made one similar that called for mashed sweet potato, orange juice, almond milk & it was definitely yummy. Nutmeg also a good spice to add. - 3/27/12

  • LOVED IT!! I am a huge fan of sweet potatoes, and I was glad to have another way to enjoy them. I did substitute sugar free maple syrup instead of the brown sugar. Also, I added pumpkin pie spice & ground cloves instead of just the cinnamon. Next time I will try it without the banana. - 9/29/11
