I haven't made this yet, but I'm going to today and I'm just going to make half of the recipe first, sounds really good. Cashew butter and cinnamon on sliced apples are also very good.

I halved the recipe and it made almost a pint. I had to add quite a lot more soy milk than the recipe called for, and it's still a tad thick. I tried some on a piece of Ezekiel bread toast and it's very tasty! I like the idea to add cinnamon.

Will this work in a high speed blender like the blendtek?

Can this recipe be made using canned garbanzo beans?

This looks great! Any idea how long something such as this would last in the fridge?
