I used my cubes, mixed up with some fruit, I love the taste!!
I'm gonna try Almond Milk also .
you might be onto something about the STAR shape outlet. Here's also what I found , The star shape is nice , but if you look deeper into the back of it you will see 4 tiny little posts sticking straight up. I took the piece off and from the back looking down , I used a sharp steak knife and easily cut those 4 thingies off , you will notice right away the difference in the opening , and yet it doesn't ruin the star shape. If you do it becareful and have sonny do it, since you have to hold the piece while cutting .
