      I would suggest that you eat them on their own, then drink the rest of the drink. You can leave them out but I think they add to the nutritional benefits. Thanks again KS! :)

      The pumpkin seeds are sprinkled into the drink whole? I like them, but can't imagine chunks of anything in a beverage.

      I tried soy milk for the first time several years ago when I was on a detox diet (to eliminate toxin build-up from caffeine, salt and sugar). In that diet, dairy milk was banned. I didn't think I would care for soymilk, but I loved it! I haven't had it in a while, but this recipe is something I would love to make. Especially in warmer weather!

      Thanks for sharing the nutrition information, as well as the recipe.
