"Not terrible, but not what I was expecting either. I agree with the reviewer who said they were expecting something a little richer... this just didn't have much flavor to me, sad to say."

"This is very tasty. There are a few other recipes that you can make with their "easy Espresso" recipe- make sure you click on the link so you can see how to make it.

My husband loves regular iced coffee, so I keep some prepared espresso in the fridge ( to a whole espresso recipe, add 1/3 c sugar if you're making this recipe), and he just adds 4 parts milk for every 1 part espresso."

"Excellent. Next time I might add another Tbls. Of pumpkin just to intensify the pumpkin flavor. Both my husband and our park ranger loved it. EZ to make in the RV without a blender. Used full amount of vanilla, perfect. Rocky Knob VA park hosts."

"Here are all my notes: I didn't use the full 2 T. of vanilla. I actually didn't measure. I did up the sugar. Since I have an espresso machine, I didn't heat this mixture as stated. Here is what I did. I mixed everything together and blended with an immersable blender. Then I made the espresso. I pour the pumpkin milk into the frother and frothed the milk like I usually do when making my daily lattes. This is far better than Starbucks as they don't use pumpkin in their lattes. No spices at the bottom of my cup doing it this way."

"Do you Really mean 2 Tablespoons of vanilla! Sounds like a lot! I too would use Stevia instead of sugar. I may try this with pureed butternut squash. We have lots of it growing in our home garden."

I haven't made this yet, but plan to try it soon.  I saw your post from awhile ago and didn't see where anyone had responded to your question.  Hope this helps.
Good luck!"

"EXCELLENT! Love it. Substituted Diamond Brand Vanilla unsweetened Almond milk for the milk, and Sweet n low for the sugar. Left out the whipped cream and heated in microwave instead of on stove. Excellent. Tried whisking it, but the blender, as suggested, is best as it mixes the pumpkin more thoroughly. Will make it again many times!"
