    Excellent! I was dubious but my 4 year old request an dinner with pumpkin and banana and here it was. Very tasty, enjoyed all round. I used the whole can of coconut cream just because it was there and I did not have celery but followed the recipe otherwise.  -  02 Feb 2014  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
