Always on the lookout for a new healthy coffee creamer, yours sounded good. I don't like to complain, but this is pretty nasty. When I poured it into my coffee, it looked curdled. And yes, I shook it gently. I couldn't get past the lumpiness, and the taste was strange. I purchased it at Meijers or Walmart, can't remember, but the date was good so it just must not be for me.
Pros and Cons:
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
