I really enjoyed this. I subbed almond milk for the soy milk and a handful of almonds in place of the flax seed meal. Other than those adjustments I followed the recipe. Super yummy and filling. Will make again. Saved to my recipe box! Thanks. Read More

So easy and so flavorful. I followed the recipe to a tee! Great use of berries if they are getting too ripe. Worth trying. Read More
